ABC Christmas Blog Hop

Good Morning!  Thank you so much for joining us for the ABC Christmas Challenge blog hop!  This is ABC's final hoorah for 2010.  I hear 2011 has some great challenges in store for you.  I am absolutely thrilled to be included in this blog hop and representing StampFairy.  StampFairy is sponsoring this holiday party so you're sure to see some pretty adorable cards along the way.  If you came here from Samantha's blog then you're on the right track for a whole lot of fun.  If you came here just to visit me and you want to join in the fun, start at ABC Christmas Challenge Blog.

So here's my card - this is S for Santa....


This Santa (4) image is so funny!  My kids said that instead of "ho ho ho" being the sentiment, I should've used "help help help"!  LOL  I also drew help from the great sketch from Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Real Red, Certainly Celery
Paper:  Gift Wrap digi paper (ACOT)
Stamps/Ink:  Sentiment from CC Designs, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics:  B000, C8, C10, R27, R29, W-3, YG67
Prismacolor Marker:  Cherry
Tools:  Circle Cutter (CM), Scallop Nesties (Spellbinder), 1 1/4" and 1 1 3/8" circle punches

Be sure to visit the blogs, there are surprises along the way.  You'll also want to collect letters for a special treat.  Now hop on over to Carissa's blog.  Have fun!

Happy Holidays!
