Waiting for Santa

The theme this week at Winter Wonderland is "twas the night before Christmas". At first I wasn't sure what to make for this but then I found a wooden stamp half price in my local craft shop which would suit the theme. I stamped it twice so I could decoupage the cat and layered it onto red card, then blue card. The image is coloured with Promarkers and chalks. The strip on the right has been punched with an MS star border punch. I added an embossed nellie cut circle and some MS punched snowflakes and pearls.

The number of entries is growing each week as more of you realise the time to get all those cards made is getting shorter so come join in the fun and you could win some fab digi images from Delicious Doodles.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday
The Corrosive Challenge Christmas time
Cards for men Christmas in July
Crafty Angels Circles and squares
The Shabby Tea Room Embossing
Christmas Stampin' all year round free challenge
Fussy and Fancy Christmas in July part 2
