Santa is on his way

'Distressing', is our new theme this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over and see what we have all been making and get all the details.
Remember we like to see your  Vintage/Shabby Chic style .
This time I decided  to make a tag. As it is now 1st December, I think I will  start panicking soon, on the things I have still to make.

The papers I used are from Kanban. , with a piece of torn printed Kraft card.
The Santa image is  cut from  a Graphics 45 sheet before  taking the blunt scissors to the edges. A realy good way to distress something as you never know how  it will tear.
Using a  die cut Poinsettia  and trimming from my stash to finish the tag.
All the shadings are distress inks, Walnut stain. Festive Berries and Peeled paint.

I will also be entering the following challenges-

Fussy and Fancy -Challenge 77    I love Christmas
Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog,  'Santa Clause is Coming to Town'.
Crafts4Eternity -R 100  Christmas Chaos.
Live and Love Crafts  -Challenge 6 Anything but a card.
