Santa's Day Off

From when the very last gift is delivered on Christmas Eve until late July, Santa is at a bit of a loose end. There is only so much DIY he can be bothered completing so that leaves time to wax down the surf board and head to the beach!

And he cuts an impressive figure with his red board shorts and cool shades on the beach at Blackpool.

Surfin' Santa can be yours for £2 from the Dr Digi store!  I've coloured him with Promarkers and added a beach with Bazzil card stock along with a Sizzix spade die cut and sun.  The fairy lights I've had for years and the place I bought them from has since closed down.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Here Come The Boys:  Anything Goes
Hobby Cutz:  Summer
Pan Pastel:  Summertime
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards:  Life's A Beach
Stamping With The Dragon:  On The Beach

Image:  Dr Digi, coloured with Promarkers
Papers:  Echo Park Summerdays and Bazzil cardstock
Dies:  Sizzix
Everything else:  My stash
