Father Christmas

Good morning everyone,
I hope you've all had a good weekend. I haven't got used to not going to work on a Monday morning yet!! It feels very strange so I'm going into town instead! A little bit of retail therapy!!

I've got another Christmas card to share today, using a Lili of the Valley image called 'Father Christmas'. It was lovely and sunny here when I took the photo!
I've coloured him with my promarkers. The background papers are Bo Bunny - Rejoice.

I've used my new Spellbinders poinsettia die (Harrogate purchase!!) and added some small pearls to the centre. I love this die, you might be seeing quite a lot of it before December!! I've finished off with some ribbon and a few pearls.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Lillies Little Fairies - Classic Christmas
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Traditional Christmas
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Christmas stampin all Year Long - Anything Goes
Totally Gorguss - Traditional Christmas Colours

Thanks for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments.

Love your gorgeous traditional Christmas card Lorraine. Love the image and your poinsettia looks lush, might have to invest as the one I have doesn't look have as nice as this one. Enjoy your day in town.

I'm glad to see Santa has his gloves on when working with holly.
A few years ago I had a go at making my own holly wreath and couldn't work with my gloves on so I took them off. Oh boy, probably the most stupid thing I've done in years....my poor hands were in a right mess by the time I'd finished the wreath!!

You've done a fantastic job on your card.

Hugs
Jane
