Santa at the Sugar Bowl...

Helloooooo...and welcome to this fortnight's Sugar Bowl Challenge! Before we get started, I have a quick question...are you tired of the Christmas "countdown" yet? Well...I'm not going to tell you how many days are left 'til Christmas, but let me just say, if you haven't started your shopping yet, you may want to start thinking about it! I tell ya, I am seriously lovin' the online shopping option!! hehehe!

OK...let's talk about Christmas cards, shall we? Cuz that's exactly what I've made for today's Sugar Bowl!


My talented friend and fellow DT "Sweetie," Maria Therese, has given us this fabulous "challenge" sketch to follow...


Awesome, huh? Oh...and, the other part of this fortnight's challenge is...

NO DESIGNER PAPERS!

Hmmm...seriously?? You know that I love my DPs! The more layers, the better!! hehehe!! Well...I guess that's why we call it a "challenge," right? Soooo...I chose this cute little Sugar Nellie stamp called "Old St. Nick." He's such a cutie, isn't he? This darlin' comes from Sugar Nellie's "Home Grown Collection" and you can find him HERE at Funky Kits! Here's kind of a side view...


My card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Hunter Green & Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Snowflake embossing folders (Cuttlebug)
Metal filagree corners (Wild Orchid Crafts)
Ribbon & gold beads (my stash)
Liquid Applique
Copics & prismacolor pencils


And my fave "artsy fartsy" view... 


And nowwwwwww...it's time to pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at the gorgeous projects made by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then, come join us for this fortnight's challenge! One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie. Once again, our prize for this Sugar Bowl Challenge is....

...your choice of FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps
(increasing to SIX if we have 100+ entries!)...

Oh...I've decided to enter this card into the following challenges...

Hi Pat - I had to do some work - hence the long delay between viewings. Loving this sweet card with the gorgeous Santa and pretty snowy backgrounds. Looks like a window scene on the inside. Beautiful! Hugs, Lesley
