Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend.  Our town is holding it's annual Raft Race this Sunday.  It is a great event where teams are encouraged to build their own rafts and paddle down the river through the town.  Lots of side stalls and entertainment is provided too.  Hopefully the weather will be kind to us when we sit on the river bank on Sunday with our refreshments.  I think a few nibbles and a glass of prosecco will go down nicely lol.

Anyway, onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  This will be an extended challenge and will last until the 27th August. 
Our theme for this challenge is:
Christmas Carols/Christmas Songs

Here is my inspiration project and I have chosen the song 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town'.

The image is from a Lily Of The Valley Art Pad.  I matted it onto red cardstock.  The background has been embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.  Some Ho Ho Ho ribbon along the bottom and some punched snowflakes finished the card.

I am looking forward to seeing all your entries to the challenge.  Just pop over to Winter Wonderland for full challenge details.  We have four sponsors for this challenge offering some great prizes so you don't want to miss out.
