Santa's on his way!!

I love the Santa Collage stamp by Ruber Stampede and enjoyed using it so much for my grandma's card that I decided to use it again fro my mum & dad's card. The colour scheme in my parents lounge is red, cream and gold and always looks lovely at christmas, so decided to stick with a traditional colour scheme!

Image stamped onto acetate before being matted onto glitter card. Frame created from red CS and gold mirri card. Red CS embossed with snowflakes folder. All papers used are BG wassail. Strip across center of card has been embossed with 'just my type' cuttlebug border folder! Flower is from my stash and has been distressed with a bronze inkpad. Gold snowflakes are an x cut punch and pearl gem to finish. Sentiment is from a studio G set and has been cut out and matted onto scalloped circles with my nesties! Gold glitter dots in the corners are from QVC!

I also decorated the inside, just a simple design. Cream CS distressed with bronze inkpad. Sentiment and holly stamp are both from See D's kits.

Well I've had quite a productive day today craft wise. I've made 6 chocolate boxes for the dinner table on christmas day. I followed the instructions given by Jules at her recent Bag, Tag and Box class that I went to so thanks Jules. When I get them photographed I will upload them. I also made a brithday card for my sis in law's birthday on tuesday.

Only 11 days left until the big day. I hope you're all keeping up with things and you're not getting too stressed! After all 'tis the season to be jolly'! Lol!

Hugs, Vicky x
