Santa's Unusual Helper

     It's the last challenge of 2017 over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and we have a new sponsor, Sasayaki Glitter.  I've played in many of their challenges and progressives and I'm just tickled to pieces to have them as a sponsor.

     I'm using "Christmas Dragoon."  I know that dragons aren't typical Christmas animals but my eldest granddaughter loves dragons (as do I) and I see no reason why they can't participate in this wonderful winter holiday.  They beat out penguins (who are basking in their summer during December) and lazy mama polar bears hibernating away with tiny cubs, and certainly are more delightful than Calling Birds or Partridges.  Yes, they are definitely my favorites because they are so unexpected!

     Besides, Santa obviously can't deliver packages to Dragon Mountain (far too dangerous for Santa) so Dragoon is now Santa for all those deliveries.  For those of you who wanted to see the actual Santa, sorry.  This is as close as we get today.  :-D

     Santa has his sleigh and Dragoon has his sled.  I hope his tiny wings will be enough to take off with that heavy load.

     The image is printed right onto the card base because I wanted this one to be very CAS.   I used ProMarkers to color the image and added a bit of sparkly gold and silver to the package wrappings and the sled runners.  I did print the sentiment separately, then hand cut it and added it to the upper corner but other than that, it's a single layer card.

Come play with us.  Remember, we always have a theme of "Anything Goes with a Critter" and we have a very broad interpretation of "critter."  :-D  Happy Stamping.

This is a totally adorable card Connie but and I'm glad you shared it with us. However, I'm sure you understand we had to see 'Santa himself' to qualify for the prize! Hope you understand. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Here Comes Santa Claus’ challenge! We hope you’ll come back often.
