High Hopes Challenge - Santa Claus is Coming to Town!!!

Howdy -

Today I will have two post - This one for High Hopes and then later a Special Whimsy Stamps Post - :0)

The Challenge from High Hopes today is really gonna put you in the Christmas spirit! "Here Comes Santa Claus!" so I put that together in my little brain with the song I heard the day I made the card...  of "Leaving on a Jet Plane"... and that got me to this  -


My brain works in funny ways sometimes, but hey it is still working! - I stamped out the High Hopes image "Flyin' High Santa" Colored it out... then I cheated just a tiny bit and made a couple of color copies of it so I could cut out layers. Sorry... short on time I didn't think I could color up that many. I cut out one, and then popped it onto the copy with a wobble thingie... looks sort of like a plastic spring it is sticky on both sides and once stuck down the image wiggles all over! I love it! Need to find out where to get more! LOL

I also stamped out the sentiment "Santa Claus is coming to town!" then put it in my copy machine and blew it up really big! Now a really smart person would have copied it onto red paper.. but no I copied it onto white then colored it red. duh.

Then some Gold stickles for some dots to look a little like brads.


So wish you could see it wiggling here!!!

Here is the inside. I had and extra santa from my copies... hated to waste it so I cut it into a circle and used it inside.


Totally forgot about the Copic colors this time. Sorry was a crazy evening, and Hubby had the TV tuned to a Rush concert so I was pretty much jamming around my craft room and wasn't paying too much attention to what I should have been doing. Oops.

Now you must pop over to the High Hopes Challenge Blog and see all the DT's Santa cards and then join us for some Ho Ho Ho fun!!!
