Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe #10 & Winter Wonderland Week 28


Hi girls. Good to have you here on my wee blog. I haope all is well with you and yours and that your Christmas preparations are all well in hand. Less than two weeks now until the old man with the white beard appears down the chimney. We are putting up the Christmas lights today outside the house and in the garden so by the next time I post I hope to feel a deal more Christmassy.
This card was made to enter two challenges. Crafts 4 Eternity gave a recipe this week that comprises of a great sketch + Santa + 2 Brads and Winter Wonderland had a theme of "Ho Ho Ho" (I hope the Santa saisfies that requirement). The image is from Stampin Up and is coloured using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are the reverse side of "Alpine" by Eskimo Kisses and My Mind's Eye's "The Merry Days of Christmas - Santa's Forest". The flowers are handmade and the other embellishments are from my stash.
I do hope you like this card and that you will do me the favour of leaving a comment to record your visit and let me know what you think. I appreciate your visit and hope you found it enjoyable. have a good day crafting.
Hugs,
