Anything Goes for the Christmas Card Club!

Hi Everyone, hope you are all well and having a great weekend.
I'm scheduling this post for the CCC on Sunday as I am away in Glasgow for a few days and I just know I will not be up to doing it when  we get home.

So, it's the turn of our lovely Sylvie and she has given us an easy challenge and one that everyone likes "Anything Goes", here is what I've done,
Woodware Fun Santa image and coloured with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils, matted on to black card and paper I've had for ages. Stamped a few snowflakes in the background and added lots of glitter to Santa, a little tartan bow and a felt tree.
I just love this image by Hobby Art, I've tried to give a real frosty, misty morning look with shades of grey,blue and pink. Coloured with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils, DI and loads of glitter, ribbon an a snowflake charm, Die'sire sentiment dies, and a few sequins.
Thank you Sylvie for this super challenge, I enjoyed doing it.

I must apologise for the awful photos, I seem to be getting worse at it.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my last creation, most appreciated.
Take care and see you soon,
I would like to enter the second card into the

Oh my, you've been quite the 'gad-about' lately. Good for you and I hope you've had loads of fun. Love this funky cheeky Santa on #1, he made me smile. Just the thing for Christmas morning. Also loved the cool gaggle of Christmas geese on #2. Each card is quite unique, and such a good job on the creations for this challenge. Rest up. TFS & Hugs
