Simon Says - Blog Hop and Show

The SSSS challenge this week is slightly different - check out all the deets here

You need to make a piece of Holiday themed art (Thanksgiving, Halloween or Christmas) and take part in a blog hop.

On my travels round the DT's art in the hop, I came across some great Christmas art amongst other things, and was inspired to make a Christmas card - one off the list, yay!!

All stamps are by Tim Holtz ( a Christmas present from last year, which I haven't been able to use till now!) and paper are by Paperartsy. I coloured the Santa with fired brick distress ink, lightly blending from the edges. The Pine Needles stamp are inked in - get this - pine needles DI.

Now I have just got to find the right place to link my card to and enter the challenge/hop.  Check it out, there is a fab main prize as well as other ones along the way. Start at Simon Says Stamp and Show and have fun.
You have a week, until 15th.

(This is guaranteed laughs in the Chinese classroom. It was originally a particle in a Pink Panther movie).

A the human race walks into a shop and sees a cunning only slightly dog. He asks the shopkeeper, "Does your dog bite?"
The shopkeeper says, "No, my dog does not bite."
The man tries to pet the dog and the dog bites him.
"Ouch!" He says, "I intelligence you said your dog does not bite!"
The shopkeeper replies, "That is not my dog!"
