Friday Sketchers #82 & Just Magnolia

Good morning girls, the big day is getting still closer and it won't be long until we've seen the last of making Christmas cards for another year. It will be nice to get a change.
It's getting very cold here and it wouldn't surprise me if we got some snow before too long. It would be nice if it came on Christmas Eve and melted on Christmas night. We can only hope.
However on to immediate business, this card has been made for two challenges. The sketch was provided by Friday Sketchers and the topic for this week's Just Magnolia was "It's Christmas". The image is Magnolia's "Santa - Santa Delivering Presents" coloured in using my trusty Copic Ciaos. The papers Re "The merry days of Christmas - Old St Nick" by My Mind's Eye and "St Nick Holly Berry" by Bo Bunny. The flowers are hand made and the other embellies are from my stash.
If you like this card and you have a minute to spare I would love it if you left a comment. I love reading them. Thank you for popping in and please feel free to come back any time. have a great crafting day whatever you are intending to create.

Hugs,
