The Paper Shelter Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my post for the last challenge of the year from The Paper Shelter Challenge blog. This challenge is an Anything Goes challenge and will last for 3 weeks over the Christmas break. As I'm still in need of Christmas cards (I always send/give out lots), I thought I would use the cute new digi, Waiting For Santa Too, with poor Mrs Claus waiting for Santa to return from the night time deliveries. Isn't she just the cutest little granny?!

I kept my card fairly simple as I wanted to show off the background papers that come with the digi as well - they are such gorgeous colours.

And now it's time to announce the winner of The Paper Shelter blog hop that we had last fortnight to celebrate their 4th birthday! 

The random winner of a digi stamp from The Paper Shelter from the comments on my blog was
