Hi lovely friends, followers, bloggers, and anyone else who might might be passing by - thanks for visiting!
I wish you all a joyous Christmas, and a peaceful New Year!

In a very windy and rainy Leeds today, I finally finished the shopping for family Christmas prezzies. Hoorah! Just the wrapping to do now!

 I made this card for a recent class, and I love the Santa image so much I thought I would share it with you! Hope you like it!
The stamp is from The Artistic Stamper "Victorian Christmas 3" set.

The Holly Flourish die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Aperture - Spellbinders Squares set.
Colouring - Copics.
Glitter - SU Dazzling Diamonds.
I would like to link my card to The Artistic Stamper
December challenge - "Anything Goes".
Deep Ocean Challenge - "Christmas is all Around".

Love and hugs to all ~

So glad you stopped by as I often wonder how you are doing. Hope your Christmas was all you hoped it would be and more.

Not blogging much, have been pretty ill for awhile and just not enough energy to craft or post. Hope 2015 is better as I'm so looking forward to finishing my coloring classes and playing again.

This card is gorgeous, the image is colored beautifully and I love the overall design.

Wishing you a blessed and peaceful New Year. Love & Hugs, Carol
