Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe that tomorrow is Dec 1st. Christmas is just around the corner. Where does the time go. It is also Tuesday so that means that it is time for another fantastic challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week the challenge is one of my favorites "Anything Goes". We also have a fabulous sponsor this week
I used a really cute freebie of theirs that they have on their blog. I love coloring Santa and I just couldn't resist this adorable face. You can find this freebie here. Just scroll down to the bottom.
They are giving one lucky player this week a gift certificate to their store. So what are you waiting for you have to play to win!

I did my card a little differently this week. I created a ornament that comes off the card after you open it so you can hang it on the tree. Just a little added surprise to go with the card. The little bells also jingle when you shake the card. The ornament bottom is made from CS that has glitter made into it so that it sparkles a bit.

The ladies this week made some cute creations to inspire you to play along so be sure to stop by each one of their blogs
