Santa Claus is coming to town

So that was summer - school holidays are over and I always feel quite nostalgic that its another year nearly gone.

What better way to cheer myself up then some Christmas crafting!

The Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge this month is :

I chose to use this stamp by Crafty Individuals for this which is  - Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

I stamped the image and coloured it using Spectrum Noir pencils. I used Distress Inks to age the panel. I stamped the holly leaves again using Distress Inks and water to pull out the colour.

Here are some song titles to inspire you!

White Christmas
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
Jingle Bells
Santa Claus is coming to Town
Jingle Bell Rock
Deck the Halls
All I want for Christmas is You
Winter Wonderland
Joy to the World
Frosty the Snowman
Silver Bells

We always love to see your creations and there is a prize too!

Other challenges I am entering :

Love your choice of song for HLS! Your Santa is such a great old-fashioned image, and he made me smile the way he is surrounded by toys! Great colouring of all those details!
