Aud Sentiments Challenge #16 Ho! Ho! Ho!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American followers, Happy Thursday to all my other followers!!! Hope you are all well. It is getting a bit chilly in South Devon and according to the forecasts some of you may even have snow further up the country.
Onto to business and firstly, I would like to thank everyone who entered our last challenge at Aud Sentiments another tough choice for the DT but check out the Aud Sentiments Challenge blog to see who won.

I would also like to remind you that there is still time to enter our November Candy - it ends on 30th November so check out the rules on our blog - Aud Sentiments November Candy - you have an excellent chance of winning too.

Our next challenge is to use Ho! Ho! Ho! as your sentiment.

We are being sponsored this fortnight by Taylored Expressions

and the lucky winner will receive

Here is my card............

I have used Santas Little Helper perched in one of my new purchases, Nestabilities Lacey Circles - ideal for threading ribbon through. I bought the bright glitter card from Tesco to use with the children but borrowed a bit!!!!! The words were cut out using my Nestabilities Childhood Alphabet - check out the link I couldn't get this any cheaper in the UK even with the postage on top.

Here is a closeup...............

I coloured Tilda in with watercolours and added glitter to her hat and apron (doesn't show well in the photo).
The paper is from a DCWV Christmas Stack with glitter purchased ever such a long time ago!!!!!.

I would love you to check out my fellow DT for their wonderful inspiration, you will find their links in my left sidebar.

I look forward to some wonderful cards as ever.

I shall be entering my card in the following challenges:-

All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge - Christmas plus any Magnolia image,

Magnolia Down Under - I have used their sketch,

Daring Cardmakers - Anything in threes,

The Stamp Man Challenge - Anything from Tim Holtz ( I used my TH Distress tool)

The Crafty Pad - Red and Green,

A Spoonfull of Sugar - Anything Goes,

One Stitch at a Time - Choose a season or event (mine is Christmas),

Hugs to you all
