Anything Goes at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  As I mentioned I started a new job on Monday.  So far I am getting on okay and seem to be fitting in.  The work I am doing is varied and I think I will enjoy it.  But I still need to get myself into a routine after two months of not working.  So apologies if I am not around as often commenting.  My time in the evenings is pretty limited now.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Anything Goes

Our sponsor for this week is Lacy Sunshine with a prize of 3 digi images to the winner.

Here is my inspiration project using an image from Lacy Sunshine called Overstuffed Santa.

I coloured the image using my promarkers and then cut it out using one of my dies. The backing papers are from my christmas stash.  I matted the paper onto mirror card.  The little christmas trees were in my stash and I added some ribbon across the centre with some gems.  A bow and sentiment finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the super inspiration from my talented teamies.
