Delightful Challenge Thursday – It’s A Kid’s World!

Hello everyone! Hope all is well with you and yours!

Thursday’s here so we have a new challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is It’s A Kid’s World!, so make something with a child in mind! Or for me if you like; same thing! J

We are sponsored by
who are offering a fabulous prize!

So I wanted to make a kinetic card as I thought a child would enjoy something with a bit of movement and I thought Flying Santa would be perfect! I made a sliding mechanism (sounds technical and clever but was sooooo not!) to enable Santa to ‘fly’ across the sky and back again.  OK so the poor guy only goes a few centimetres; not a long & interesting flight!!!  I also made a ‘sleigh’ to hold some pressies, all of which I cut from various dies.

Spot the diffrence??!!   

I originally intended to make a penny slider but the thought of Santa spinning out of control across the night sky might have looked a bit nightmarish, especially for kids! I know it would scare me!! J

Image: Flying Santa
Dies: Spellbinders ‘Decorative Labels Eight’ & ‘Labels Four’ – Tattered Lace trees – Sizzix oval (to shape the top of the ‘sleigh’) – Tonic ‘Nesting Squares & Rectangles’
Punches: Tonic snowflake
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White –Snowy Sky paper from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Stickles – ribbon - twine

So fly (it’s not far) over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the amazing inspiration created by the DT and don’t forget to visit the shop for Wendy’s gorgeous digis!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a lovely day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
