Santa Claus is Coming To Town - PSC56

Hello again!  You'll be hearing a lot from me this week.  It's a busy one with lots to get done.  Today I've got the Perfect Sentiment challenge going.  This week our Theme is ANYTHING GOES!  Don't you just love that one.  The Twist is that you need to use paper scraps to make your background - any way you want to do it.  Hit that stash of scraps you have - you know you want to use them up. 

Our great sponsor this week is Shelly's Images.  Make sure you hop over to her store and check out what she's got to offer.  Fun stuff.
The prize this week is one free digi image from her store.

For my card I decided to go with the Christmas theme.  Trying to get some more of those holiday cards finished.

I love Christmas music.  I could listen to it all year long.  Can't you just hear it - "Jolly old St. Nicholas, Lean your ear this way.  Don't you tell a single soul what I'm going to say."  or "You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not shout, I'm telling you why.  Santa Claus is coming to town."   LOL!  Love it. 
Materials Used:
  • Image - My Favorite Things - Santa Baby
  • Sentiment - Designer Paper
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Cherry Cobbler; Express It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Stash of scraps
  • Accessories - Flowers and Leaves - Prima; Glitter Brad - stash; Snowflake Charm - Oriental Trading; Baker's Twine - Stampin Up.

That's it for today.  Now for some additional inspiration, hop on over to the Perfect Sentiment Challenge blog and check out what the rest of the DT has been up to.  Then get your crafting hat on and your scraps and tools out and get creative and post your own card using Mr. Linky.  You could be the big prize winner this week or picked as one of the Top 3.  Good luck!
