Almost Santa Time

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week and getting yourselves prepared for Santa's visit. I'm not at all organised - but then I haven't been organised for the past umpteen christmasses and the world hasn't come to an end so I don't worry about it nowadays.

In my last post I told you I had been very lucky to win 2 prizes, one of which was on the ABC challenge blog. My prize was a LOTV voucher and as they sent me the code yesterday (how quick was that) I was able to go shopping and of course I had to add a few extra bits so that I could take advantage of their 24 hour sale - so I'd like to say a big thank you to all at the ABC challenge and also the lovely people at LOTV for the prize.

So on to my card which I made for my Dad to give his sister. I used one of the fabulous decoupage sheets from Joanna Sheen's Giordano Christmas collection and the papers were from my pile of loose sheets so not sure who from. The sentiment was made on the computer and cut out with Marianne Creatable LR0180 die. I used Tattered Lace Christmas Florals to make the Poinsettias and the foliage is from the Memory Box Fabulous Phlox. I finished by adding a few pearls from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Make it sparkle christmas challenge'
Country View challenge 'Bah humbug'
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'Layer it up'
The ABC challenge 'A for Almost christmas'
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Christmas sentiment'
Crafty Catz challenge 'Santa Claus is coming to town'
Crafty Little Fairies challenge 'Classic christmas - red, green & gold'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes'
Sketchy Colors challenge 'Red and green'
