Santa is wishing you a merry Christmas

This card is for the sketch on Basic Grey week 9:

It's also for:

29: 'buttons'
Saturday Spotlight 9: 'hats on'
Creative craft 4: 'waiting for Santa'
Wednesday stamper: 'Santa Claus'
Color dare 45: 'kraft, dusty durango, very vanilla'
Easy Breezy Kewl 12: 'kraft, tangerine tango, kiwi kiss, close to cocoa'
Sweet stampin' 2: 'it's a colour combo - usse minimum of 3: chocolate chip, real red, old olive, very vanilla'
Colour throwdown 71: 'olive, red, brown/cream'
La-la land 15: 'buttons, buttons, buttons!'
Cards for men: 'Christmas' - this is a new challenge blog just started (I think this would be very appropriate as a 'male' card for man or boy
Paper cutz 20: 'digital or hand stamped Christmas image'
All that scraps: 'anything Christmas'

Although the papers don't look very Christmasy, they are, in fact, all BG Figgy Pudding.

I just love that labrador stamp - it reminds me so much of John's former guide dog, Josey - some of my visitors might remember her - she is well and enjoying life with her new family.

Don't forget: If you go to the top of my blog you will find the post about my celebration candy - you've got to be in it to win it! I now have 100 followers, so I'll be adding something more to the blog candy.
