OOH LA LA CHALLENGE #116 AND DT CALL

Hi all today we have a new fortnightly challenge theme for you to try at
we would like to see a 
Christmas Sentiment
added to your card/project
Here is my DT card using both papers, image and sentiment from the CD
Christmas Presence
I chose this particular image as I love to see the really old traditional Santa he has a vintage look which, I think you may know, I love so much.
I have mounted him onto green cardstock  I added a die cut, gems and some flower soft.  I have had flower soft in my cupboard for years so thought it was about time I started to use it again, I forgot how effective it looks on cards.

Did you get to see the launch of our new CD on Create and Craft yesterday? It was lovely to see Paul Church do the demos, the CD is now available to buy just click the link in my sidebar to take you to the store.

We are also having a DT call Wendi and Emma are adding another FOUR members to the team, if you would like to be considered then please enter DT after your name when entering the challenge.
Many thanks, once again, for your awesome comments on my creations, it really means so much to me that you take the time to visit and leave a little comment for me.
I will be seeing you all later until then have a lovely day, hugs to all.

Lorraine, what a lovely Christmas card you have made. I do love to see cute and contemporary but I am a traditional kind of girl really. Hope you are settling down with the medication. It can take up to two weeks or more for them to kick in properly so I hope things get better day-by-day. Take care and a big hug for Polo. Kym xxx
