CHNC challenge 115: Santa and/or his helpers

It seems like ages since I blogged, which is very unusual for me. Lack of blogging isn't because I haven't got any cards to show, it's because I've been making too many cards and haven't had any time left for blogging about them. I have a charity sale today (when this goes live I will be going out of the door!). I have an 'at home' event next week, so I will still be busy this coming week. Added to that have been hospital appointments for John - he had an operation on his eyelid on Monday and this coming week has three hospital appointments.

Anyway, back to CHNC challenge 115 that goes live today, which is to make a card with Santa and/or his helpers.

For my card I've used the 'Santa in chimney' image kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Digistamps4Joy. I coloured this digitally in Paint just adding a touch of a Marvy le plume alcohol pen on the bricks to give the look of a bit of dimension. The designer paper is My mind's eye Bohemia Christmas 'believe', with the addition of a gold mirror card backing mats, some red bling gems from Poundland and a gold foiled sentiment.
