Jingle All the Way

     I promised you another post today if I got this project done and I've just completed it.  Simple as it was, I had to wait for the glitter to dry and then it barely even shows in the photos.  Sigh...

     Catch the Bug and Bugaboo Stamps began it's annual, week-long, Christmas in July with a new challenge each day and I am going to try to play along each day between now and next Friday.


     Colored with ProMarkers and fussy cut by hand, then adhered to the card front with a little dimension.  Die cut border (Spellbinders) and one of those bows I make myself by the dozens.  Glitter on the die cut, in the "o" of each Ho Ho Ho, and on Santa's hat pom-pom and the placket of his jacket around the buttons.

     Challenges:
Male Room (Jingle Bells)

     Short and sweet but I want to get back to my book.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

What a fun card! Santa looks a bit confused, but works well with your song. So sorry to be so late commenting (summer holiday!), thanks so much for playing along with our Song Title challenge at The Male Room. Deborah x
