Ragged Santa

Hey there my lovelies! It's a cold winter day; no snow here yet but looking forward to get some! First, I would love to send warm wintry wishes to all my friends out there celebrating Thanksgiving and hope you will enjoy great quality time with your beloved ones! We don't celebrate this here but I'm definitely gonna make a pie this afternoon:)
Now, onto the purpose of my post today: it's challenge time over at Digital Pencil Too and therefore a great moment and opportunity for me- that is to play with Mo Manning's wonderful winter images because our hostess with the mostess- my dearest Pat, wants to see:

Elves, fairies, Santa, or snowmen
on this week's cards/projects!!!

Have you seen Mo's recent Christmas images? You can check them up on the Digital Pencil Too blog, they are all fabulous! It was such a joy to color this Ragged Santa- he's just  the way I've always imagined him; funny, joker-like and full of patches on his tattered clothes. Oh, I just love this image!

The background I added is from Make it Crafty- called Gift Way, thought it would work nice with my Santa who seems to be in need of some directions:)

Stamps: Mo Manning - Ragged Santa
Make it Crafty- Gift Way 
Coloring medium: promarkers/copics
DP: MME (I think:))
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and metal corner; lace from stash, glossy accents on the poinsettias;
Misc: lots of ultrafine glitter, Twinklets- Diamond dust, snow marker;
Sentiments- Whimsy Stamps- Christmas Sentiments

Challenges for my card: 
Hanna & Friends - Red and Another Color (white); Paper Crafting Journey Anything Goes; Little Red Wagon -Christmas; Scrapbook Sisters - Christmas ; Crafty Sentiments Metal; Digital Tuesday - Sparkle & Shine, Everybody-Art-Challenge Christmas Card; Partytime Tuesdays -Snow Us What You've Got, Paper Take Weekly - Christmas Crackers!

That's it from me! Now it's your turn to pull off one of Mo's elves, Santas, fairies or snowmen and make your own card/project for Christmas/winter! I look forward to see what you come up with!
If you're looking for some inspiration you can head over to DP2 Blog and marvel at the wonderful cards of my DT sisters!! Don't forget to leave some love on the way too:)
