Sunshine Santa

Hey everyone. I am sorry I haven't been around lately. My entire family has been battling the flu other bugs over the past couple weeks. It kinda makes it hard to craft. LOL.

Well it's Thursday and that means it is NEW RELEASE DAY over at Meljen's Designs and boy do we have a release for you. Check out these fabulous images (which can be purchased along with the rest of Meljen's fabulous images, at the the BRAND NEW Meljen's Shop).

A new release means a NEW CHALLENGE over at Meljen's Designs. This week's challenge is:
(Square, Round or Shaped Cards!)

For my card this week I chose to use Summer Time Santa. I wanted to do something bright and cheery for this fun Santa image. I used a scraps of this great double sided polka-dot paper and I love how well it works. I added some red ribbon to the top and I stamped the Ho, Ho, Ho sentiment directly to the patterned paper. What you (hopefully) can't see is that I actually dropped the stamp when I was done and smeared ink on the card. I was in a state of panic and I (luckily) found these awesome present and flower stickers that perfectly covered up the ink smears. All in all I am pretty happy with my sunny Santa.

Now head on over to the Meljen's Designs DT blog so that you can check out this week's challenge along with all the fabulous DT cards. FYI, the challenge gives you a chance to win free images. Also don't forget to grab this week's FREEBIE while you are there
