It's a Man Thing @ Crafty Ann's Challenge

Good morning folks! 

It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week it is all about the guys in our life with challenge

Of late I have been making a dent on my Christmas cards and today I managed to get one very special little mans card done :)  Dylan is fascinated with Santa at the moment and I thought Crafty Ann's - Santa Stuck Snow-globe would be perfect for him.  I took Santa out of the snow-globe for this card and being for boy went with C & S and the classic red and white combo. 

Now we all know I am not a huge fan of C & S (only cause I suck at them and can not do C & S) but I absolutely love how this card fell into place.  I admit, if I was not going to distress the edges in any way I had to add some stitching and for some texture to the card on the snow drops and around the chimney I went over them with some pearly puffy paint. And Santa has been colored with Spectrum Noirs.  Dylan hates flowers and all the girly things so I think he should be as happy with this as I am :) *fingers crossed*

As always we have a fab prize for one lucky person who plays along with us this fortnight. 
Your choice from  
You could win -
