Santa's Baaaaacccckkkkk!




It's a sketch at Sassy Cheryl's this week and they wanted us to use pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.  Well I couldn't wait any longer to use this new digi I just picked up so I found a unique place for my pink.  Kinda crafty, I might say.  Ha Ha  When I first saw this adorable Santa (which you can get HERE, go on I know you want him) I knew what I was going to do with him.  He seemed to be saying I'm Baaaacccckkkk!  That is definitely a warning and a promise to all the naughty and nice little darlings out there.  When Sassy Dawn asked us to use this sketch, my world just got easier.




I wanted to use this pad of paper I had ordered from Aww Shucks, a Scrapbook store in Myrtle Beach.  I had been dying to use it.  It is from the Father Christmas collection from Bo Bunny.  Aren't these papers gorgeous?  The card stock is SU Crumb Cake and the black is from a package I bought at Michael's. I just sorta eyeball measured and cut the triangles.  Santa is just a rectangle that I used a circle punch to take away the corners.  My friend Jeni has a special punch that does this, but I just insert the corner half way into my circle punch (flip it over and do it from the back of the punch so you can see better) and punch.  The ornament base is made with a SU Ornament punch.  The have the matching stamps so I stamped one with Sahara Sand ink and cut it out.  The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with the same circle punch.  The leaves are from Brazill Paper Flowers collection.  I added 6 pink pearls for berries and it was done. Santa is colored with  Copics on Papertemptress Cryogen White card stock.  I have mentioned this before, but I absolutely LOVE this paper.  It has a sparkle to it that my camera doesn't pick up.





Here's the sketch you need to use.  See how easy it is to do.  So pull up a chair, sit down and have some fun making a card or a tag or a box or a what-not.  You don't even have to use a Sassy Cheryl digi to win (but your name does go in twice if you do).  Enter your project here.  Don't forget to use pink.  Hope to see you there!  TTFN, Linda
