CHRISTMAS SANTA

Good Morning everyone,
Wow! can you believe Christmas is almost upon us!! It's very wet and cold in Doncaster today.  I still have a lot to do, some presents still need to be chosen...I have never been this far behind, but still not feeling a l00%.  I had a house full yesterday for lunch, it was lovely, two of my brothers came, my Mum, Debs, Candice and my little grand-niece Saskia and off course my hubby David.  My bro's live in Mottram, Cheshire and they had at least 3" of snow yesterday, their car was full of snow when they arrived...Candice just loved it.  I just admired it from a distance lol!!
Would like to share some good fortune I  had last week......I won Iulia's anniversary Candy Whoooo!! I couldn't believe it, I was absolutely thrilled!!! Thank you Iulia!!  and I also won a beautiful stamp from lotv's 12 days of Christmas event..also really thrilled and excited!!! LOTV Challenge  has now closed :( but Jacqui and Bev are starting a new one on the 9th January called Lili's Little Faeries.  So pleased as I love these stamps, and I enjoy looking at all the gorgeous creations you all make! and there are some stunning new designers on the team as well.
Hope you like my card for today, not had much time to make any (but still need to lol!) it is what I made for Liam before I went away...he loved it...as we had a special Christmas day and opened all our presents together..he was so excited.  He is such a little treasure.

 I made the inside to match the front


I used a Sarah Kay image "Santa with Toys" and coloured it with Prisma Pencils. Papers were "Barely Mine - Christmas Frolics" and "Memory Box - Mistletoe", ribbon was from "The Ribbon Girl" and my little cane I made myself with "Fimo" I couldn't find what I wanted so Deb suggested making one out of Fimo I added a little silver ball and some red ribbon.  This was my first attempt with Fimo, I was really chuffed with how it came out lol!! and my die was from "Go Kreate"  I used glamour dust on his coat and hat..it really is sparkly but not a very good photo...sorry!

Would like to enter for the following Challeges

Red, Green and White

Hope you all have a great week, and manage to get everything done in time..... Many Thanks for supporting me this year, I've only been blogging for ten months, but have met some really great people and I have 46 Fantastic Followers....have a really great Christmas and hope Santa is really good to you all Mwah!!!
Biggest of hugs,
Marjorie
