Santa's Workshop Snowglobe

The Squirrel & The Fox Challenge 7 DT Card

I've not done a lick of shopping yet because I've had a sicky kiddo at home this week.
Yes, this is my excuse and I'm stickin' to it; regardless of any arguments that might be cast regarding several other weeks in the year to's the principle of the matter and I shall not admit in any tangible form that I have procrastinated in the least. 

However, I have made this card and that HAS to count for something, right?

It's challenge time at
and this challenge is...
Our wonderful Sponsor is
the very talented Zoe at

I was lucky enough to be given this image to use called
Thank you, Zoe!!

I always loved the idea of having a magic Snowglobe that could let a child look to the North Pole and see the progress of the elves working away and in hopes that Santa himself might pop into the room.
So, I had to go with the idea.

I followed the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers here for the card.

Santa was a free coloring page image on the internet.
Both the workshop and Santa are colored in Copics.

That's it for my  Snowglobe, but we'd LOVE you to come by and 
play in our 7th challenge for Christmas at
and see the crazy FUN cards that the other talented DTs have made for the occasion.

Hello Quirks
Procrastination indeed, get the wine out have a slug and get a move on! You may have to shake a leg Q, Snow Globe cards that can also pass for Xmas puddings, no matter how brilliant and stunning they are may have to take the back seat from here on in, and you have to heal your sick Kiddo as you put it and put those skates on, I mean you have made all these incredible cartons and they have to be filled!!!! What are you thinking?

Thanks for makin' my day and don't worry about the shopping as it all seems to get done somehow. ;) Hope the kiddo is feeling much better and that all of you stay well.
