#12 Christmas is Coming! or Winter is Here! with Mary Lou

Christmas Eve is here and the excitement fills the Air!! Tomorrow~~Christmas Day~~Jesus is the Reason!!  I wish ALL the JOY,  LOVE and BLESSSINGS thru our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
Now onto some extremely great news to share with you~~Crissy Armstrong~~Sundays with Crissy has asked me to fill in on her DT for alittle while so Maria can have a break ~~We all know how important that is:0)  So Maria, beathe and relax:)  I pray you find comfort and rest for you and for your family!!!  Thank you Crissy and crew~~I am truly HONORED and TOUCHED!!!

So for my card I have used the Whimsy Classic Santa by Crissy
Made a Criss Cross card using K and Co Xmas Cheer, Recollections Xmas CS and AC Specialty Foil Papers.  
Colored Santa with Copics and Prisma Pencils.  Added White velvet flock sprinkled with SU dazzling diamond glitter to his trim on coat and hat. Accented with Gelly Roll white pen and used Clear star pen on his sack and designer candy cane belt :0)
All edges were inked with TH Brushed Corduroy. Sentiment from Inkadinkado set.
Border is an EK Success punch.
The pull tag was made with the smallest SB beaded circle nestie and topped with an Epiphany Crafts customized button--Click Here to check out this cool gadget!!
My friend asked me if I would make a card for her boss from the staff.
This is what I came up with:)

A note from Crissy:
 I'm going to do something a little different for blog candy with this month's challenge!  In the spirit of Christmas and giving, I am going to give away one digital image to the first 12 players!  AND I am opening up the contest to include EVERYONE (not just for those using one of my images)!! So if you are one of the first twelve players to link up your Christmas/winter card on here, you will get your choice of  one of my digital images from either Whimsy or Squigglefly!  How fun is that!
Now to keep it fair, you must make a card specifically for this challenge.  Any cards that are "back-linked" will not qualify.
And, if you don't make it in the race for top twelve, you can still have a chance to win at the end of this month.  I'll still draw a name (using from the participants, and that lucky person will get to choose 2 images of their choice from my collection.
So what are you waiting for!! Ready, set, get crafting!!

It's too late to be one of the first twelve players, but it isn't too late to get in on the final draw for two free digis!  However, Zoe owner of Make It Crafty, has added an additional surprize for the winner! She is contributing her brand new digital image "Stairway to Heaven". It is a background digital stamp that would compliment Crissy's images Beautifully! 
So why not play along, you have a week to link up your creation at Crissy's Post Here!!
Happy crafting!

Mary Lou, this is just stunning! It looks like one of those cards you have to hold and feel to get a real appreciation for it. I love all your added textures! I love the colours you chose for Santa. I love the criss cross design, and the beautiful papers you put with him. Also the way you used the edge punch too, wow, it is such a beauty of a card! I am just honoured to have you with us!
