Challenge 16... The Man Himself ...Santa Claus


"Whoop di doo ... la di dah ... 
Happy happy ... kiss kiss.
Spring is here, then Summer comes  
Autumn next - Then Christmas!

And guess who won't be worrying about having enough cards to send?  
YEAH - You and Us!
Y'know those friends, who 'poo-poo' us for making festive cards all year?   The ones who are too busy being 'seasonally distracted' to think ahead?   The ones who'd rather chase Easter bunnies in Springtime ... or build sandcastles and laze on the beach in Summertime ... or dillydally with ghosties and goulies and things that go bump in the night through Autumn?  
Well when November comes around,  they'll be wishing they'd followed our lead and done some forward planning too!  Try not to be TOO smug though as it isn't becoming LOL!
Anyway, to keep yourself on track you need to join in with our challenge this week and make a card or project incorporating The Great Man Himself ...

Santa Claus or Father Christmas

There are a gazillion and one Santa images, stamps, embellishments and/or papers available to crafters worldwide, so there's no excuse.  Get motivated ... have a good rake around your stash and show us your Santas!    
The Humbuggers and our Guest Designers have provided you with some inspirational ideas below and if you'd like to know more details about this week's DT projects, or just want to leave some love for Ann, Max, Kelly and Veronica,  please click on the links above each card to visit their personal blogs.

Ann - Just for Fun
*********************
The deadline for this challenge is 
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday  28th April 2011
 *********************
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different Christmas Projects as you want to share.  
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.
Happy Christmas Crafting!
Luv
Ann & Max
