Double D, Here Comes Santa

Good Morning!
A brand new Challenge starts at The Double D Challenge Blog, and here is your Inspirational Tile:

This Tile should get you in a very festive mood!
I went a little old fashion....err maybe classic and rustic....and I made a Shaker card!
Using Spellbinders Standard and Scallop Circles I created my Shaker.  A little bit of Fun Foam and Plastic Packaging--I save all my plastic for making Shakers, do you?  My Shaker bits are red glitter and sequins and some snowy chunky glitter.  Designer Paper by Papertrey Ink, Christmas Prints.  Sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, MFT, Inspired By Christmas stamp set. 

And what's Santa without his sleigh? 
My Vintage Santa is stamped in Raven Black ink.
MFT Blueprints #12, layered banner flag.
Red Ribbon.
Do you believe in the magic of Christmas? 
I do!!!
Thanks for sledding by.
