'Morning, Bloggers!
The new Try it on Tuesday challenge is 
Christmas is Coming!
It's a wonderful time of year,
but it's also a busy time of year. So even if you have all your Christmas cards, tags, etc done and dusted, we hope you'll join us in our final challenge of the year 😉 
Whichever medium you prefer is fine...just play and have fun.

My card was fun to make and didn't take too long.
The background is Oxides, the TH characters are stamped, coloured, cut out and glued in place over the masked snowy background. Those cheeky Dylusions words complete it and - to me, anyway - go perfectly with the googly eyed figures. TH pines in the background, too. It's finished off with gorgeous Frantage snowy embossing powder, I love the random effect. 
I've used Appliqué for the furry bits and the edges of the beard and moustache. 
(I almost melted the googly eyes with the heat too! Oops!)

Please don't forget to check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT
We look forward to 'seeing' you on your blogs 😊

Oh Cath I had to laugh at this fantastic Christmas card. This is quite clever and is perfect. I think adding those google eyes is really smart. I bet Santa feels that way after delivering all those gifts-smile. Hope you are having a wonderful day. Hugs-Erika

Such a fun card - I love that rich coloured background and the goggly eyes! Thanks for joining us at Tic Tac Toe this month - have a wonderful Christmas x

Neet said...

This is such a fun card, I love the googly eyes, especially the ones on the reindeer - I would never have thought of using one big, one small but it works so well and reminds me of a Stampotique image I have.
Your snow looks very realistic as it is falling and I love the effect you have got at the bottom of the card followed by the pale blue a bit higher up - grounds the figures perfectly.
Hugs, Neet xx
