Guest Designing at CCAYR

For those of not familiar with CCAYR, it's Christmas Cards All Year Round.  They have a monthly challenge where they challenge you to (obviously) make Christmas cards.  There's a random draw for a prize and they pick their top 3 favs.  I was lucky enough to be one of their top 3 in May.  :-). This month I was asked to guest design.  The theme is all about Santa.  Anything to do with him, reindeer, presents, etc.  I actually don't have too many Santa stamps but this one (by Rubber Stampede) is an oldie but a goodie.  :-)

I stamped the image and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added some sparkle snow to Santa's hat.  I cut a strip of sparkly red paper (Recollections, Jolly Jamboree paper pad) with Santa's catch phrase on it.  Its a bit hard to really see the sparkle.  Trust me its very sparkly!  Added some green ribbon and a bow.  Love that sparkly paper!

Hope you all can join in the fun.  You have the rest of the month to link up.  Have a fabulous day!

I'm going to link this up as well at Lesley's blog Alway Playing With Paper and her Merry Monday Challenge.  This time it's running all month long and it's an anything goes theme.
