High Hopes Jolly Holiday Release - Sneak Peek Day 1

Yippee, it's time to show you a peek of the new High Hopes Jolly Holiday release :)  They're all Christmas and Halloween themed and you're gonna love them!
Sorry I've been awol this past week or so, I've had a stinker of a head cold and chest infection, so I'm glad I already had my sneak peek cards already made!

My card today uses Down the Chimney (available to purchase from Wednesday) - I've coloured it with pencils, added clear gloss and glitter to the snowy bits, and flower soft to the furry bits on Santa's jacket.  For the base, I painted a pale watercolour wash and then stuck down some die cut snowflakes.

Pop over to High Hopes blog for more peeks from the DT .... there'll be another peek along with our new challenge tomorrow and then a hop on Wednesday with the chance to win some new stamps :)

Challenges I'd like to enter this card into...
Crafty Calendar August - anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra - September
CHNC #192 - people matter
Allsorts #274 - early Christmas makes
Sweet Stampin Christmas - gifts galore - I'm hoping my image counts as you can't actually see the gifts in Santa's sack, maybe someone's been bad and that's just a bag of coal ;)
Simply Create Too #69 - use something new (my new Santa stamp)
