Christmas Card Club challenge #13 - Santa's Sleigh

 Hi Crafters,

I'm so late on parade this time - I hope the CCC ladies and Kate will forgive me for taking so long to join in with her challenge this time.

Kate has chosen the theme of SANTA'S SLEIGH 

I have used a very old Papermania stamp that has been in my stash since I first began card making I should think. I've used Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold embossing powder for the image and sentiment. Gold mirri card and gold glitter card for the layers and a few gems to finish. As I was late playing along I thought I had better make the most of the opportunity to create four cards this time.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

CHNC Every Saturday - #600 ATG Christmas
Unicorn Challenge - #77 Monochrome
Rudolph Day Challenge - ATG Christmas

All the crafty shopping channels are starting to show their Christmas goodies this week, I wonder how long I will resist the impulse to buy more stash? I really don't need anything Christmas themed at all but you know what it's like, each new release has something just a little bit different to what you already have that teases you into buying it. I really like the new Carnation Crafts Christmas collection but it is very expensive I will just admire it from afar :o)

Thank you for visiting and for all your comments recently, I appreciate and enjoy reading each and every one of them.
