Santas' Sack of Surprises

Well we are definitely counting down to the big day now and even hubby is getting in the festive mood singing along to Jingle Bells.

I know I said I had called a halt on christmas cards but I had this gorgous Giordano decoupage image already made up and it was just so right for OH's nieces who are dog and cat mad. I kept to a CAS design and just layered up onto a background which I embossed using a Die'sire Embossalicious holly folder and the sentiment is a LOTV christmas grungy message stamp.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Totally Gorjuss challenge ''Special christmas'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Last minute christmas'
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge 'Whatever is urgent to make'
Dream Valley challenge 'Christmas'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Last christmas... card of the year' (my 2nd entry)
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)
