Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Dear Santa

Welcome to our first December inspiration challenge!  We have a Dear Santa Theme with lots of room for interpretation :)  The LEAD for this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge.

We are sadly saying goodbye to Amy Sheffer today (hugs to you, Amy, we will miss you!), and giving a big welcome to Silke Ledlow as she joins The Crew.

I have seen some cute punch art Santas in cyberworld, so I searched Pinterest and it did not disappoint :)   Found this adorable little guy and had great fun creating him.  Added some snowflakes to the background, a red scalloped trim for a pop of colour on the right, and "made" the sentiment from MFT's Grand Holiday Greetings fit even if it hung over the edge just a bit ;)

Dear Santa

Have fun with the challenge and I look forward to seeing your creations in the Curtain Call gallery.

Marisa *waving* I fell behind in commenting (frantically making Christmas cards for my mom - done - and myself - not done, as well as the Advent Countdown - Days 19-25 yet to do and mail - and other 'life stuff' betwixt and between. Yeesh!) in November, so I hope you received my oohs and ahhhs that I sent telepathically! I'm catching up on your December gems and Santa here? Oh my! Ho Ho Ho AWESOME! A brilliant creation using your various dies! Super cute; super festive!
