Patchwork Santa

Hi There,

Yay holiday time at last!!! I'm not super excited because I'm going away anywhere, I'm just glad to be finished work for a fortnight!  As you can tell from the lack of posts the last few weeks have been busy and more than a wee bit stressful, with a few late nights just before I finished on Friday.  Anyway, holidays mean more crafting time and that can only be a good thing!

Today's card uses a Forever Friends image I coloured weeks, if not months, ago with my Promarkers.

The papers are all magazine freebies from a couple of years back and I've used a Spellbinders die to cut the swatches for the 'patchwork'.  I've used the papers again for the snowflakes which were made with the X-cut freebie die that came with this month's Creativity magazine.  The circle and scallop circle dies are also from X-cut. The sentiment is by LOTV and I've added Hobbycraft gingham ribbon and large Dovecraft pearls to finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by and having a peek at my blog, it's much appreciated.
