Santa & His Helpers

 






I love to take part in many challenges and have been very fortunate to have been included in a list over at 613 Avenue Create of some amazing crafters who have had so many featured projects last year that we are 2020 Master Rockers. I am truly honoured to have been included in such a talented bunch and we have been invited to be Guest Designer during the course of this year.


The challenge theme is always Anything Goes and the 
Optional Twist for December is: Any Holiday



I have created a scene by combining the Santa image from Very Very Merry along with 2 of the little girls from Santa's Little Helpers



This card is for my manager and she has 2 little girls. The images come with different hair colours which makes it really easy to personalise your projects.


The image has been printed onto glossy photo paper which really makes the colours pop.


I used an older sketch from Cheerful Sketches for the layout of this card. The papers are from the same paper pad which makes it easy to co-ordinate different patterns with the same colours throughout. Finally I added a sentiment which has been recycled from an old card we received.

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.


Card Details -


Size - 8” Square

Digital Images - Very Very Merry & Santa’s Little Helpers (Kate Hadfield Designs)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order)
