Figure Eight Santa & Cookies

Things are cruising along here pretty well. Hope you are well on your way to completing those Christmas projects.

How many of you do Christmas baking and which one is your favorite? For me, it is hard to pick just one favorite but I will say the good old standbys, chocolate chip, peanut butter and of coarse sugar cookies. Although I love snicker doodles, yum, I will need to put that I my list of projects.

Today's card is using the Stamp for Fun challenge sketch #36 and a new Santa digi stamp I found at Squigglefly. He is skating figure eights around the project, well at least we can imagine him doing that. Again the card is a simple one, I was trying to keep the embellisments flat so it did not turn out as well as I would have liked. I needed something behind the glittery white foam snowflake so I punched out a spiked flower, cut it into quarters and adhered it to the back so that it sticks out. The Flower Soft adds some additional dimension to his outfit.
