Tropical Santa

Good Morning, I hope that you are all staying warm. We have had a January cold snap and it is just best to stay indoors here which is perfect for crafting. 
Over on the ABC Christmas Challenge, we have a new challenge starting today but before I tell you all about it, I would just like to welcome Fiona, Emma, Michelle and Chris to the team. It is great to have you all joining us.
Our new challenge is being hosted by Wilma and she has chosen the theme of
Bows or Boys

We have two wonderful sponsors joining us for this challenge



Bugaboo has generously provided some wonderful digis for the team.  Being as it is so cold here, I am trying to think warm and I have opted to use Tropical Santa. Oh how I would love to join him on a warm beach right about now but it is our busy season at work and I don't think that they would think to highly of me taking off to the land of sun and sand. Too bad!
I've stuck with traditional Christmas Colours but given them a bit of a punch to brighten them up for the beach. The sentiment was from a new Hero Arts set I purchased a while back and have not really used yet so you can expect to see more of these sentiments throughout the year. They seem to be perfect for a more CAS style of card which will be good for the mail.  Maybe if I should address them as they get made this year and then they might actually make it into the mail this year.
I hope that you will join us for the challenge, I look forward to seeing your creations.
Hugs, and have a great day. Thanks for stopping by.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
