1 card 13 challenges

Hello Friends, oh it's absolutely freezing here today, everywhere is white with frost and the fog and mist are sitting really low. Ventured out this afternoon for a couple of hours, so glad to be back home in the warm. I had a lot of fun making this card for all 13 challenges, it was tricky trying to get all the elements to work together, but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.

Here are the challenges Santa is entering.

1. Sketch Saturday Challenge: I followed the lovely sketch from Jeanette who is hosting the challenge this week.
2. ABC Challenge: This week the letter is J which stands for Jigsaw. to be used somewhere on your project. A very unusual one, but I found a couple of pieces and used craft work rub ons to enhance them.
3. Simon Says Challenge: This week the theme is Let It Snow. I've used snow tex under Santa's feet and have the words Let it Snow on my card

4. Cute Card Thursday Challenge: This weeks theme is Sew Beady. Lots of beads on your project. I sewed a little wreath out of red and green beads and put a red rose in the middle to make it look Christmassy.
5. Charisma Cardz Challenge: This week the challenge is a colour one. Red/Green & either white or silver. I chose to go with white in my snowflakes and jigsaw pieces.
6. Die Cuts R Us Challenge: This is my first time joining in on the challenge I found the blog through a friend and let me tell you it's just lovely, lots of things going on, Tutorials, hints, tips, challenges and great Candy too. You really must pop over and have a peek, you won't be disappointed. The theme for this weeks challenge is a Holiday theme for this time of the year.
7. Creative Craft Challenge: The theme for this challenge is Waiting for Santa, just make sure there is a Santa somewhere on your project.
8. Digital Tuesday Challenge: The theme this week is a Christmas Song. I've chosen "Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow"
9. Incy Wincy Designs Challenge: This week the theme is Snowflakes.
10. Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge: This week Penny would like to see Christmas Stars on your project. My DP has stars all over it, I've also included craft works rub on stars too.
11. Quixotic Challenge: The theme this week is seeing Stars. Lots of stars on your project.
12. Stamp Something Challenge: This weeks theme is Winter Wonderland. If you are trying out for the DT then the deadline is midnight tonight.
13. Winter Wonderland Challenge: This week the theme is Ho!Ho!Ho! the theme is open to interpretation so it's up to you how you see it. I've used the actual words above Santa's head.

Thank you all so much for popping in to visit, I really appreciate you taking the time. I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
