S is For Santa (extra Not Red)

He's writing his list
He's checking it twice
He's gonna find out
Who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
Welcome to another festive challenge, and what would Christmas be without Santa? No presents, no sooty footprints on the carpet, no late night mince pies or sherry. It would be terrible!
But before we get down to the nitty-gritty of the challenge, we have some sad news....Cathy is stepping down from our little team to concentrate on her other DT commitments....we're very sad to see you go hun, and wish you all the best! She will be back later however, to announce the winner and Top 3 of our R for Rudolph challenge so please remember to check back ..... it could be you.

#24 - Kleeblatt

Random Org Overall Winner:

#32 - Lins

Congratulations! Please email Helen & Samantha (abcchristmaschallenge@hotmail.co.uk) to collect your blinkies, and details on how to claim the prize.

Well, as we have reached the letter S, I think we need some Santa's on your cards for this challenge. And the optional extra (chosen by me, Squirrel) is NOT RED. Did you know that Santa never was red? That was a clever marketing ploy by a soft drinks giant (other colas are available). Let your imagination run wild and let's be seeing some funky coloured Santa's!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is ....
with a $15 gift certificate to spend in the store.
And we have a Guest Design spot up for grabs too! to join us for a couple of challenges.
So if you would like the chance to Guest Design for us please add GD after your name on your entry.
The Design Team have done it again and provided you with some cracking inspiration. Get an eyeful of these stunners ...

You have two weeks to enter the challenge so get those cards made and linked up so the Design Team can ooh and aah over them all. Looking forward to seeing them!
Hugs, Squirrel xx
