Santa Clause Is Coming To Town

Hello there my crafty friends.

I hope that you're enjoying the weekend and keeping nice and warm during this cold spell.

I'm here today to share a card that I've made for this week's challenge over at Allsorts, and their theme is 'Inspired by a Carol or Winter Themed Song' and I've decided that mine will be 'Santa Clause is coming to town.'


I've gone for a Vintage look with this card as I wanted it to have a traditional feel to it.  All of the stamps that I've used are by 'Crafty Individuals' and I've coloured it using Distress inks and Inktense pencils.  Don't those little children look sweet peeping through the window!  Talking of Crafty Individuals, don't forget that Jean Hardy will be back on Hochanda on the 1st of December with more of her wonderful products and demos.

I would also like to enter this card in Scrappy Mo's 'Rudolph Days' challenge as this will be the last one of the year and into 'Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge.'

Wishing you all a happy crafting week x

This card does have a lovely, vintage feel. I like those little children peeking thru the window. So sweet.
Your use of lace is perfect with those pretty doily hearts you tucked in behind the image!
