Just to Remind Santa....

Hello, thanks for dropping by and I hope you all had a good weekend. We had a lovely day at my Dads house on Saturday as he had visitors - his "younger" brother and sister. It's lovely when they can get together, especially as they have a combined age of 260 years (with the youngest of the three at only 77 years) !!

No card to show you today but instead I have a doorhanger that I had to make in a rush as little eyes were watching and little hands were ready to take it home and I only just managed to get a quick photo before it disappeared. I was very lucky to win 4 Sugar Nellie stamps in the last Sugar Bowl challenge and this is one of the stamps I picked. It's called 'Santa With Lantern' and I coloured it with Promarkers and then cut it with a QuicKutz nesting frame die.  I cut a piece of kraft card and rounded the edges with a punch and cut out the banner by hand. I used red gel pen for the fake stitching around the edge and the handwritten words and then punched a couple of holes and threaded some old tape to hang it to the door. I know it's far from perfect but a certain miniature person has already hung it on the bedroom door just in case Santa stops by for an early 'reccie'

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Sugar Bowl challenge 'Anything Goes with a Sugar Nellie image'
CRAFT challenge 'Bookmark or Doorhanger'
Sketch Saturday challenge 'Sketch'
Passion for Promarkers challenge 'Clean and Simple'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Going Krafty'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Cute Christmas'
Allsorts challenge 'Stitching'
The ABC challenge 'S for Stitching'
Whimsy Stamps challenge 'Clean and Simple'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 4th entry)
