Santa's Sack of Happiness

Another productive weekend over..... not craft wise but spending! Well I just had to take advantage of some free postage and sales to add to my crafty stash!

Here's another christmas card using an image from a Joanna Sheen cd 'Giordano Christmas Creations'. I printed the image several times so that I could decoupage it and matted it onto some gold mirricard. The paper is Berry Merry by Jennifer Ellory (a very old magazine giveaway) and after I added a recycled sentiment I decided no more embellishing was needed.



I shall enter this in the following challenges

Allsorts 'let's make a start on christmas'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 'anything goes as long as it's christmas'
CD Sunday 'father christmas'
Words 2 Craft By 'happiness is a warm puppy' my 2nd entry





Well it's turned into a lovely and quite warm afternoon here so I think I may pop out into the garden for a while and soak up some of this autumn sunshine while it lasts. Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great week.

  9. Well I think this must be a unique image as I have never seen a Santa before surrounded by puppies. Gorgeous card.

  10. Great bit of fussy cutting around those puppies. This is such a cute image. Been in the garden most of the day. Breakfast and lunch out there and in between a spot of digging and clearing up. We have been besieged by hoards of ladybirds today. Red and orange ones. All trying to get in at the windows.
    Hugs Mrs A.

(And, can I just say I too am struggling to not buy, buy, buy from all these crafty sales offers. LOL) As always, thanks for joining us at Words 2 Craft By. We really appreciate your support. :)
