Santa's Peeking In!

I am currently recovering from surgery, so this post has been set to autpost - Forgive me if I've made any mistakes!

Today is freebie friday, at Bugaboo Stamps! Aren't you excited?! Who doesn't love a freebie, right?! This week's freebie is just too too cute! Head over to the store to pick up this cute window santa for your very own! he's just perfect for those last minute Christmas cards! Want to see some creative inspiration using this cutie?! Then head on over to Catch The Bug to see the fabulous inspiration from the DT!

My card today uses the current Stella Says Sketch, and features this week's freebie image, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used the sketch at Sketch and Stamp for my card layout. I went with traditional Christmas colors.  The image wiggles when you move the card and is mounted with an adhesive wobbly spring.  (Sorry, I don't know the official name for them - The package says wobbles LOL) I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the image. The metal metallic silver snowflakes are from my stash.  The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
