Crafty Catz Challenge #397 ~ Anything Goes

Ooops late again! I'm here with my post for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week it's the turn of our wonderful teamie Nick to host and she gave the DT the additional twist that you can play along with too if you like, its Santa Claus is coming to town! Yep use a Santa on your card, nice and easy huh?.  The sponsor for this challenge is


Well at the moment my crafting time is extremely limited and when I was looking for inspiration I came across a tin of Vintage Christmas Stickers and thought I'd be able to rustle up a quick card.  I went with vintage for the rest of the card. The paper is from Flair Designs and I roughed up the edges then added distress inks using peeled paint, vintage photo and walnut stain. I also did the same treatment to the tag before adding the Father Christmas.  Used a little bit of ribbon for the tag and some decorative tape from Lidls (just like washi tape), a few enamel dots and finished off with a sentiment sticker from the tin.

Just before I share my card Crafty Catz are looking for a Guest Designer for JANUARY 2018 if you are interested please add GDT after your name when you enter your card into this week´s challenge. Good luck to everyone!

So there you have it my vintage card.  I actually have the whole weekend off which is just as well because after the weekend I'm working 8 days straight! So we will be having our Christmas dinner on Boxing Day!
