Jolly St. Nick at Tuesday Taggers

Jolly St Nick has to show his face this week on the Tuesday Taggers challenge blog and my favorite Father Christmas is this wonderful stamp from Habico. I've used it in so many ways but this little project just made me smile all the time I was making it.



It's an alarm clock I picked up last year in BM Bargains which looked like this




I pulled it apart and replaced the image with the santa stamp added a little snow in the box with gems for the hours and put it all back together with a ribbon around.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment on the front of the clock and I think it will make a lovely Christmas eve present for my niece.  What a wonderful way to keep the kids in bed a minute or two longer on Christmas day!

So if you're filled with the spirit of Christmas do come join us on TT this week.  It's a cracker! and it's sponsored by that most wonderful house of treasure
so you'll be in with a chance of winning £15 to spend there if you're lucky
and dont forget the start of their
Find the Owl Competition

What a fabulous project Michelle. I don't know how you manage to come up with so many brilliant ideas so often. It's a joy to visit your blog!

I think that has to be one of the best Father Christmas stamps around at the moment, yet another stamp I have to have!!!

Hope you're keeping warm.

You've got my favourite santa stamp there Michelle and Wow!! what a clever way to use it. You are always so creative with your makes, who'd have thought of taking an alarm clock to bits.
Hope you are keeping warm.
