Sandy Claws & Boogie

It's time for the 8th Day of Christmas Challenge from Simply Betty Stamps and this one challenged us to use Sandy Claws from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I don't know about everyone else but finding Sandy Claws to use on a card was the biggest challenge! What did I do? I had to draw one!

I ended up finding a similar image of Sandy Claws and Boogie online at and drew a duplicate then colored it with Copic markers. Once it was finished I discovered this also meets the challenge criteria at The Butonesque Dolls... Ooogie Boogie Fun! Don't miss the holly berry spiders!

Did you know? A Christmas Carol is a novella by English author Charles Dickens first published in 1843. The story tells of sour and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge's ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation after the supernatural visitations of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Yet to Come. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim.
