Maybe this year I will catch a peek of Santa Clause?!

This card reminds me of myself and my brothers at Christmas. Every year we tried to stay awake and catch a glimpse at Santa Clause......we never did catch him. One year however, my brother did sleep walk and bump into (and I quote) "A big fat tummy and beard" he woke up upon bumping into this "big fat tummy" and he got such a fright he ran back to bed LOL. Funny thing is that my Dad is a rather big man with a massive beard (at the time lol) It still cracks me up that he was convinced that is was Santa and that none of the 3 of us ever made the connection HAHAHAHA!

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Sketch #73 (I have turned it sideways)
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Skating Along


My image is a LOTV stamp called 'Skating Along'. I have coloured it with my Promarkers and added some Stickles. I dug out some of my old fancy edge scissors to make the deckled edge on the blue card. My papers are both from my scrap box but I think they are from an old Forever Friends Christmas paper pack. The ribbon, charm, gems and mini buttons are all from my stash, and the silver fancy corner is a recent purchase from Wild Orchid Crafts.
