Santa's coming soon...

There's a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week's optional twist is to play TIC-TAC-TOE. You can choose any row, diagonal, horizontal or vertical, to make your project. I chose the upper horizontal row.*9wmsD/Outlawzbingo1.jpg
I've used an image from Stitchy Bear Designs - our sponsor for October - colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen.

I was inspired by this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday. Papers are from Maja designs, I used a snowflake die and my stitched oval dies, and a branch with red berries, ribbon, twine, charm and pearls from stash. The sentiment is a sentiment tag from LOTV.

I'd like to participate in these challenges with my card:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch #382
Love to Scrap - Ribbon or Lace, Oh My Card Challenges - #45 Anything Goes
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything goes with a twist: something beginning with s (Santa, snowflakes)
