Design Team ~ Tropical Santa

December is about over!!! A few short days till Christmas, followed by New Years! 
WOW! I can't believe how fast 2016 went! 

Not sure about you, but I have been so busy this month, and can't wait for a break! We have 2 weeks off for winter break with my boys, and I plan on lounging! I'm sure Santa needs a break too from all his hustle and bustle! Rumor has it, he hangs out in South Florida after the holidays ;) 

I told you I would find him on the beaches! 

I loved working with bugaboo stamps this month! I uploaded the PNG's into design space, used the print/cut feature and had a perfect image! I am not the best with coloring in stamps, but slowly learning, so bear with me! I used all scraps from my stash (goal this year is to get rid of my stash!)

I bought these great little sleds from Target's $1 spot....but they weren't $1...they were $5! Still, they are super cute! We have new neighbors that are awesome! So I made the Jacob's a sled for their new house, and then made myself one too :)

Monthly Challenge #53 Baby It's Cold Outside

December is here!!! Along with lots of holidays, tons of yummy food and hopefully, cold weather! Connie is kicking this month off with an awesome challenge, "Baby it's cold outside" theme. You can create a project using a snowman, snow, or snowflake. You can create anything you wish with one (or all!) or those images! I can't wait to see what you did!! 

Here is my project for this challenge. We have an awesome sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps, so I used one of their digital images! 

I uploaded the png file into design space, and used the print/cut feature. I love how precise that machine is!!! I used a variety of markers (CTMH, Zig & LePlume), and popped him with some pop dots for added dimension. The green polka dot paper and the blue shimmer paper is from my scrap stash. And then I added some ctmh sequins to it. The inside has a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Winter Wishes set.
