Big Ornament for a Big Tree

     This is my final entry for Catch the Bug's Christmas in July challenges.  Today we have to "Pick a Present" each of which has a recipe to follow, and use a Bugaboo image.  My recipe is "Ribbon, Image, & Stitching."

I based this on the sketch from Cheerful Sketches.

     Santa is colored with ProMarkers and I added a bit of cotton to his face for his hair and beard.  The die I used to cut out the image is from Spellbinders.  The papers came from my Christmas stash and are so old I have no idea who made them but they could be either Bo Bunny or Authentique.  Either way, they are probably so old they aren't in stock any more.  :-D  Both  red ribbons were also in my stash.

     I hope you've had as much fun with Christmas this week as I have.   I have a few cards in my stash now that I won't have to rush around and do in December and will probably keep making one or two each week from this point forward.  That will give me what I need for the season when it finally arrives.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
