Craft Challenge #524 - Christmas

Good morning hope you are well and enjoying the school holidays.
I am in the process of looking for a new mattress gosh I think I have tried loads and wow they have gone up since I bought last. I even tried one of the those machines that shows where your pressure points are when you lie down and then they adjust it to tell you what you should get. I have always had a firm or orthopaedic but seems after i had thried soo many I should be going for a medium/ firm. Dam old ages now to start again with softer ones.

Anyway back to what you came here for my DT card for Craft and the details.
This week we are celebrating Christmas. So anything Christmas related we would love you to play along.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are

For my card I have used a image from QKR Stampede SANTA available from the shop HERE

 I have coloured him with my Promarkers
Added Stickles and glitter to the coat , Belt and Bell.
Die cut a stocking and added some fluffy stuff. ( not happy now I have taken a picture think I need to add some more which I will do when I get off here.
Some Hessian  Ribbon
Sentiment stamp and small dash stamp from Swedish House stamps
Dp is DCWV Holiday Glitzy all the papers have soome much glitter and best bit is non comes off
Heart Dp is a very old pad from stash
The layout is from Cheerful Sketch Challenge
