Simon Says .... Merry Christmas

Another day nearer Santa coming down the chimney (or flue pipe as the case may be). Wey Hey. It has snowed again today and we have about 5 inches lying in the back garden were it has not been disturbed. Hope it lasts till Friday. It's great that you have called in to my wee blog today. I really appreciate your time and hope that there is something here to bring joy to you.
I made and posted a card very similar to this a short time ago but when I saw this Simon Says ..... Merry Christmas I decided to make another card based on the same design. This time Magnolia's "Santa - Santa Delivering Presents", coloured with my Copic Ciaos, has been combined with Bo Bunny's "Tis the Season, Deck the Halls" and the reverse side of Bo Bunny's St Nick Holly Berry". The flowers are handmade from white card. I hope you like this card enough to let me know by leaving a comment. I love reading them and appreciate the time you take to leave them. Have a great time crafting.


  1. Hi Fiona,
    your card is gorgeous, love those papers - what are they?
    the snow is fab isn't it? am keeping everything crossed for more before Friday
    if I don't speak to you before, have a super xmas and give Sarah a huge bosie from me when you see her

  2. Another adorable card Fiona! What are we going to do after the holidays? I, for one, want to keep creating in the Christmas spirit for at least several weeks after! Have you done a tutorial on your gorgeous flowers? I'm in awe. Soo beautiful! xxD

  3. Absolutely gorgeous,Santa looks fabulous with the flowersoft.......a beautiful card!!!
    Hugs xx

  4. Hi MIL, I love to see that Santa, he really warms my heart, hope he brings me lots of crafting goodies to play with on Friday......lol.........Somehow I know he won't as john said I have had too much during the year.....bah humbug. I am worrying about this snow stopping your visit on Sunday so I want it all to melt quick..........there will be a very very very expensive hanade Christmas cake waiting to be sampled here, not to mention it will be naked as you have to show me how to ice it.........another of your many talents you must share with me. Anyhow must dash as got the gas man coming to fix the heating, Volvo coming to take the car for service, prezzies to wrap, cakes to bake and stamps to catalogue (yes I am starting that today ad I want it finished for when you come)........oh I could so get used to not having to work......He He!!!

    Sending hugs


  5. Adorable card Fiona, love your colouring and all the little details.
    No snow here, it only lasted a few hours, I live too close to the sea! My boys are gutted, they had sledges at the ready :(

  6. Hello Fiona,
    I love your card, it's bright and beautiful, and that santa looks a really jolly chap. Great choice of papers.
    Happy crafting and a merry christmas

  11. Yet another beauty, love that santa image he is just so jolly. Those papers are gorgeous too and work perfectly with this card.
    As for the snow we have only had about 2cms and that has all melted, at the moment we look like we live in another part of the world when you see all snow on the news/weather programmes.
