 Hi everyone, here's my card for the CCAYR mid-month reminder.  Our theme is to use a Santa and/or an elf on your creations!  Don't forget you can make a card or anything paper crafty you like as long as it goes with the theme.

Our prizes this month - are

Prize No1
3 digis from

Prize No2

We have two prizes giving you two chances of winning - so come on and let's see your creations.  If you pop over to the Christmas Cards All Year Round site you can check out the creations from Team Gingerbread Gals  and Team Christmas Belles (this is the one I'm on - woo hoo!)


7" x 7" White Linen Finish card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Image - Santa clear stamp from Kanban ages ago!
12" x 12" paper from stash again bought ages ago!
Crafts-Too Presscut Dies - Rectangle nesting die
Sheena Douglass Festive Fancies Dies - Holly and Berry die
Joanna Sheen Signature Dies - 25th Dec die (love this one)
Copics and Flexmarkers
Stickles Stardust Glitter

Very ashamed to say that I've had these Kanban stamps for ages and have never used them - but I was delighted with the way they stamped, really clear and precise!  Will be getting the rest of them out and giving them a go methinks.

Anyway I'm keeping this one short - I've a few 'commissioned' cards to make for my ex-colleague pal and a few 'light-weight' ones for friends living abroad, not to mention my other DT cards and, as you all know, I'm not the quickest card maker in the world plus there's my 'degree' in procrastination - lol.

Please try and enter the challenge - your creations are also inspirational to us on the DT and we love seeing them all.

Big hugs to everyone and please take care.

Love Suexxx
