The Big Guy's at TioT

Happy St Nicholas' Day!

And appropriately enough that's the theme for this weeks challenge at Try it on Tuesday.  I really struggled with this one and you'll be shocked when you realise why........ I have only two stamps with Father Christmas on!!

I couldn't believe it!  Most of my stamps have a religious theme or are quite classical so I had to pick one of the two stamps I had and that is not good!!  Gonna have to look for more in the sale after Christmas I think.  I bet I'm the only crafter in the world who fails at crafting Santa's!!!!!

Anyway, here's my card


I must say I do like this stamp and always seem to do Santa in full colour and the rest in greyscale, really makes him pop!

We are sponsored this week by our fabulous sponsors


And I'm certain YOU will have one or two cards knocking about that fit the bill so do join us

Have a good St. Nicholas' Day
x Michelle

Beautiful card love the effect, I did not even use a Santa stamp on mine, not to sure I have many stamps of Santa. Hugs Bee

Fabulous card Michelle - beautiful colouring and a great idea to keep the background neutral - Santa really does stand out.
Love the starry sky too!

Gorgeous Michelle, the focus is totally on Santa and his sleigh but the whole card is simply brilliant, you're right 2 Santa stamps just don't seem quite enough LOL Gay xxx
