Sundays with Crissy Challenge #11- Red, Green and Gold

Welcome Everyone!
Today is my day to show off one of Crissy's four new images just released at Whimsy stamps
The name of this cutie is Classic santa and he reminds me of the santa from my childhood:-) Crissy has designed these images with the upcoming Christmas holidays in mind, and from Nov. 8 to the 14th all digis at Whimsy are on sale 50% off !!
This month LSL Diversified is sponsoring with another generous prize they donated to give to one lucky challenge participant. Crissy will add to this package of stamping related accessories from LSLD, and throw in three of her digital images of the winner's choice from either Whimsy Stamps or Squigglefly!
All you need to do to be eligible for the draw is to use one of Crissy's digital images on your creation. If you are just playing in the challenge, you may use any image you wish from anywhere. This is just a rule for the candy draw.
You need to go Here to link up your card to the blue inlinkz box at the bottom of Crissy's post to join in this fun Challenge.
Please make sure you go every few days to Sunday's with Crissy blog to see the other design team members creations as we are all taking turns to show them off through the month of November:-)
I had so much fun coloring this image that I'm making some as my Christmas cards and who knows I think he'd look wonderful as Gift tags:-)
I used Bazzill swiss dot as my card base, in 6X6, Bazzill red was used for the mat and circles cut with my Nesties. I used the Stampin up oval punch and scalloped oval for the sentiment which I created on my computer. DP is DCWV and ribbon is PTI.
