Inkspirations Challenge #100 - The Final Challenge!

Yes folks, you did read correctly - this is the final Inkspirations Challenge!  After wowing us with her beautiful creations & running an amazing challenge site over recent years, Makeesha has decided it's time to move on to different things her in life. 

I feel so privileged to have been part of the Inkspirations Team over the past 15 months & would like to take this opportunity to say a big "THANK YOU" - first & foremost to Keesh (you are one amazing lady!), to Renee (our techno guru), all the Design Team Members (both past & present), all the Guest Designers, all the Challenge players & all the lovely people who have taken the time to leave comments.  You are an awesome group of crafters!  :)

So to end it all, we have a Christmas Challenge for you & here is my project:-

One of my lovely crafting buddies (Hi Kim!) had asked if I could design a Santa with a sweet treat cup belly & this is what I came up with.  (If you would like to try one for yourself, I have listed the tools used at the end of the post.)

I decided to create a little scene for him & made a tree & presents, all presented on an easel base with a slider behind Santa to get the M&Ms out. Here are another couple of views:-

We would love it if you could join us in this final Inkspirations Challenge & share a Christmas project with us. My fabulous team members have got some wonderful inspiration pieces for you to enjoy, so please visit & leave them some love:-
