Love Santa - BBTB Challenge

Happy Monday to you!!! I have for you today a sweet little Christmas card...one more for my stack...YAY!!! The challenge for this week over at Bitten by the Bug is to use either of the two trees on page 47 of the manual from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.
I chose the short non-stretched one...also Regina asked us to make it a Christmas themed project. This was very hard for me...I was stuck on what to do with it. I finally thought of the idea of Santa leaving something for all the little creatures who live in the trees. So I made a wreath with some tiny garland and cut a tag from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge. The receiver of this beautiful wreath is sitting above admiring his gift from Santa. I cut Mr. Squirrel from the Cricut Animal Kingdom cartridge.
I also thought since the tree was losing its leaves, I would make it a white Christmas and add some snow. I used some over sized glitter I found at WM. Be sure to hop on over to the BBTB site and see all the other designer's creations.....we have some VERY talented ladies over there. Please join us if you can and be sure to link up your project to the comment section of the challenge post. That's all for today...please join me tomorrow...I have a sweet little up-cycle project for you.....guess what?.....it's RED!!!!! LOL!!! HUGS!!!
