Letters to Santa

Happy Saturday everyone! 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty CalendarThis month the theme is... 
All Things Christmas

Our fabulous sponsor is Elisabeth Bell and my card features the adorable Letter's to Santa image! Isn't it sweet?! It's colored with Copics, the sentiment is a $1 stamp from Michaels and the snowflake paper is from Bo Bunny.  I cut the poinsettias out of kraft cs with Nesties and then covered them with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.  I love this stuff... IRL it looks like I sprinkled them with sugar! :) The edges have been distressed with Vintage Photo & Broken China distress inks and to finish it up I added some pearls. 

This is also my last card as part of the Crafty Calendar DT. After 2 years I have decided to step down and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to Lynne for having me... It's been wonderful to be part of this talented team... I wish you and the entire DT the very best! 

That's it for now, thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend...
I'll see you soon!

As I hate doing it I will admit at the beginning that this is a copy and paste comment as I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely Christmas creation and thank you for joining us at Allsorts this week.
