Here Comes Santa!

I'll be getting stripped of my loyalty badge at Bah! Humbug! I run late so often! I've had to miss a few that I really wanted to do, but I was determined not to miss this one so I'm linking it even though I'm after the 12pm deadline. The theme is: A Child's Christmas and if there are ever two things that go together it's children and Christmas! As soon as I saw this image from Mo Manning called "Jack Waiting", this is what popped into my mind so it was perfect. The theme at DP2 Challenge this week is "Anything Goes" so am entering my card into this one too. Digital Tuesday has "Christmas in June" and My Time To Craft has "Yuletide in June" as the theme this week which also fits perfectly and last but certainly not least, Passion for Promarkers want to see our favourite things - well children and Christmas are two of my favourite things so put them together and it doesn't get much better!

To what I've used - The main image is Jack waiting from Mo Manning. I've added the Christmas Garland from Crafty Ann's along the top of the window and stamped the sleigh silhouette in black memento ink then scanned it into the computer so that I could re-size it. Both the sleigh and the here comes santa stamps are from the same See D's set. My colouring medium was promarkers and I used distress inks and duster brushes to create the carpet and walls of the room. Other than that I kept it very simple. I used the red embossed dots bp and some gold mirri and a few peel offs and that's pretty much it because I wanted to let the lovely image take centre stage.

Thank you for popping by today.
