Santa has arrived at the Double D!

Yikes!  November is half over and Christmas is only four weeks away.  It's time to get serious about Christmas crafting if you don't want to be too "last minute". 

Over on the Double D Challenge Blog, Team Darlene is helping to get our mojo moving with a new November challenge theme..."Here Comes Santa"!
We always share an awesome mood board to get you started.  There are four photos to inspire you.  Choose one or all of them for your project inspiration.  Link it up to the current "Here Comes Santa" challenge post on the Double D Blog for the opportunity to win one of our Creative Badges!

And, there's also a prize being offered with the winner being chosen by random draw!

Wouldn't this be a great die to showcase on your holiday cards and projects?

Here's my Santa inspiration...

I've add lots and lots of layers to this 6 x 6 Santa card.  The card base of green cardstock is layered with Photoplay Mad Plaid papers.  What a fun collection of holiday papers!  I used ready made tags and die cut banner tags as the focal point.  Aside from the Santa, I took inspiration from the traditional holiday colors, the circle shape of the moon and the stars. 

This Santa bell is one of my all time favorite embellishments for holiday cards.  The red bow represents his red hat.  I added a white pom pom as the topper!  My supply of bells is running low and I need to find more of them soon.
