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.

Fabulous image. I must say this is my fave Christmas image so far this season. I feel a spend coming on as I've not got this CD and I know my daughter would love this card. Thank you for sharing it with us at CD Sunday. Wynn DT

With my DT hat on, thank you for joining us at CD Sunday.

Kathleen said...

Well I think this must be a unique image as I have never seen a Santa before surrounded by puppies. Gorgeous card.
Thanks for your comments on my cards while I have been away, sorry if I have missed commenting on any of yours but no internet.

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.

Another adorable card! What a sweet image... and definitely an image of Santa my husband would've loved as a child. (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. :)

This is such a vintage and happy card, Andrea! It makes me feel nostalgic! I hope you and your hubster are doing better! I'm glad you have some lovely Indian summer weather going on; enjoy, but don't overdo it!! Hugs, Darnell
