Through the Purple Haze Challenges - Chritmas is coming the goose is getting fat

Well its getting closer to Christmas all the time and my young son and i have been busy beavering away making ornaments for the tree and finding little do dads for stocking fillers...oh and i am nearly finished icing my Christmas cake!  I hope all of you are in line for a lovely Christmas even through these hard financial times.....And to be fair its lovely going back to the old way of having Christmas and my son has loved making Christmas decorations and icing the cake among other things...himself included!  So long as you have family around who cares about buying heaps of presents its the love and fun that counts!  Any way less of me rambling and more onto the challenge this week for TTPHC.

Hi there and welcome to another challenge with

and this week we are sponsored by the brilliant  Kenny K

Originally we were to make a Christmas card using 1 digi, 2 papers and 3 embellishments.   But a few of the DT went a bit bananas so i did both! but the other one i did will be in another post...that way i can enter more challenges lol.  So i was lucky to have Santa and his sleigh (separate digi's but i just had to buy these to as they belong together!)  Kenny K  has some lovely images up for grabs for the loved ones this year from the more traditional to the sexy stuff just for your other half...So pop on over to  them and pick up some gorgeous digi's to suit everyone.

So onto my creation this week!

I started with a red A4 card and bone folded it in half to make an A5 card blank which i then embossed with a snowflakes.  I then used K & Co Christmas Cheer paper and a handmade paper in cream with silver snowflakes on it.

I then attached a red ribbon and bow as well as adding a fairy and a sentiment called Christmas Cheer from the K & Co  Life's little occasions- timeless traditions.

I used Tim Holtz stormy sky and broken china and distressed my image after colouring it to make it look like a dark sky and after colouring the sleigh and Santa i used fine white glitter and a MS glitter glue that looks like snow for all the glittery bits on the card.

I used Copics for Santa and the sleigh.

Santa Coat/trousers R 35, 37, 39, 46
Beards C 00, 0, 01
Fur trim E 40, 42
Belt/Boots W 9, 7, 4 and Y 34, 38
