Do you ever make something and then a day or two later you see it as a theme on a challenge blog and go Doh!? I just made that! On the 29th I posted my Santa's Matchbox Suit:-
and the very next day the Christmas Stamping challenge blog listed it's challenge which was to make a holiday card or package with no stamps at all! Well I can't back link and I didn't think I could explain it away with some fuzzy date/time line logic, so the only option left was to make another one, a different one, a better one!
So here is Santa's Second suit, actually looking at the two together the one with rhinestones looks like it belongs to Mrs Claus, doesn't it?
For this entry I have used a strip of white card that has sparkly fluff applied to represent the middle cuff on Santa's coat. I've used the same buckle but a different style of ribbon for the belt.
Just so there is no confusion, the one on the left is the one made specifically for this challenge, the one on the right is the one I made the day before the challenge was listed and is not being entered - I just thought it would be cute to have a side by side shot to compare the two.
Also going to pop a link over at Make it Monday #57. If you haven't checked their blog out yet it's pretty fabulous. It's always anything goes, and rather than a traditional challenge it's a link party where you are encouraged to visit and comment on other blogs. Being anything goes, there are a vast and wonderful array of all types of projects each week. AND the winner last week was Avril who left a comment on my entry! Thank you Avril and congratulations :o)
