Better Not Pout

Hello chickadees, I am back with another Sassy Cheryl digi.  This one is for Deep Ocean Challenges and Sassy Cheryl is sponsoring this week.  I popped over to check out the blog and was amazed at the talent I saw.  Yeah a new blog to snoop at and you know how I love to snoop.  Their challenge this week is Christmas in July.  I am now their newest follower.

I think I have used this darling Santa a gazillion times since buying it but I am still in love with it.  This time I colored it up a bit with my Copics.  I added some chunky glitter (MS) to the fur on the hat and fussy cut the image out.  I glued the image to the holly oval that is a design on the Bo Bunny paper.  The flowers  and the trinket are from the same collection.  I got a bit carried away with the chunky glitter and  glittered the edges of the flowers too.  I distressed the edges, added some ribbon and a Petalloo pin, copper Nail Heads, and gold border stickers from Elizabeth Crafts to the edges for a finishing touch.

If you would like a new, or if you are already familiar with Deep Ocean Challenges pop over here.  If you post a Christmas creation in their 2 week challenge you could be the winner of some fabulous Sassy Cheryl Digis.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas where there is Peace on Earth and lots and lots and lots of presents under the tree with my name on all of  them.  :)
