Happy hump day :) I hope your week is going well. A new challenge started today (or yesterday depending where you live) at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and I am a little late telling you about it (sorry!). But not to worry, you have an entire month to join in :). Our theme this month is Here Comes Santa!
I got this Santa ages ago and promptly stamped him on this shaped piece of watercolour paper, and then just as promptly forgot about him :( I think he has been waiting to be coloured for a couple years - how time flies. The Merry and tree dies on the other hand are new to my collection. I love these dies :) New stuff always seems to be so much 'funner' to play with!
We have a fabulous sponsor this month: Funky kits will be providing one lucky winner with a super prize!
If you haven't already been, you'll want to stop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' blog to check out the beautiful cards the team made to inspire you. Then come and play! We'd love to see your Santa creations!
It'll be Christmas before you know it!!
