BittenbytheBug2 and CricutCardz #54

I was so excited to discover that I could combine these two challenges this week! I'm having a crazy work week and have to work all this weekend (8a-9p on Sunday) and I'm just trying to cram so much into each moment I have to craft. Over at Bitten by the Bug 2 Joanna got to host the challenge this week. She chose Winter Frolic and the Santa on page 53. Now if you don't have this cart you can use any Santa from any cart. They post a new challenge every Monday. Over at Cricut Cardz Challenge the challenge is to make a circle shaped Christmas card, using any cartridge. The only catch is that you can't use any red or green on your card. You have until Tuesday Dec. 14th at midnight, I think EST to enter. I cut my circle card from Smiley Cards. I also cut a smaller circle for the front and inside and then a smaller one for the top layer on the inside. I cut my Santa from Winter Frolic and dressed him in purple! Yeah, purple!!! Couldn't use red or green so thought purple would be cute. I used some Diamond Stickles on the ball on hat, cuff of hat and the fur running down the front and bottom of his jacket. I used Black Diamond Stickles on the center of his belt and Glossy Accents on the rest of the belt and shoes. Used tiny half black pearls for his eyes. And then I popped him up!! I used some letter stamps to do the sentiment. The bg paper is from s.e.i playday pack. Now hop over and join in the fun!
Hope ya'll like my round Christmas card!!! :)

Super cute card, Sharon. All your cards are!!! I'm as excited as you are to combine two challenges. That means I get to leave just one comment as I'm on both design teams. Hope you don't think I'm cheating. I love how you made your Santa blue. I would have never thought of that. Well done. Thanks for playing and good luck with the long weekend work hours.
