Skiing Santa

Good Day

I've decided to do the blog hop over at Craft Your Passion this weekend. It is all about sports and the ladies did an outstanding job with all there star creations. Their Monday challenge is also blast from past, meaning you can do any of their previous challenges, just stating which one. When I played a bit I decided that #38 suited me with red, green and cream (though my cream is probably more champagne). Then came the twist of a sport. I won some adorable Tropical Santa images from Bugaboo some while ago and it suite me so well, since I stay in the southern hemisphere, so Christmas is warm, it is in the middle of our summer holidays and most families gather on holiday next to the ocean or some form of water. The snow and all those image can not relate to our Christmases. From there my choice for this project - Santa doing some skiing. My papers is from Forever Christmas Cards paper stack from Hot off the Press inc. A stack I got last year with a magazine. I did some stitching on the ribbon to give it that pleads. Punch used is from Martha Stewart and the sentiment is also from the paper stack. I added rhinestones on the corners and stars on the sentiment - as required by the blog hop and I used some 3D white paint on Santa's beard.
