Santa Collage for Friday Sketchers!

Dear oh dear where are the daylight hours going? I have just got in from work and have taken this photograph before night fullly sets in, so I apologise for the poor lighting. I don't know what I'm going to do over the winter months as I usually take my photographs before or after work, but soon it will be too dark!

Anyway, onto todays card which I have made with the sketch over at Fridays Sketchers. I just love this Santa Collage stamp, which I got a few years ago {well my OH bought it for me actually!}, I think it's retired now, so I'm glad I got it when I did! Perfect for the more traditional christmas cards with a vintage feel!


Image: Santa Collage Stamp by Rubber Stampede (Retired)
