Christmas Card #15

HAPPY ST GEORGE'S DAY - and isn't it a beautiful one.

My card today is my weekly Christmas Card for the Bah Humbug Challenge which this week is to use the man himself  'Santa'.

I've used one of my favourite Sugar Nellies 'Santa with Tree' and coloured with Promarkers and added the usual glamour dust.  I don't think I could make a Christmas card without adding it lol.  I have used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday, isn't it fab!!  The large circle and snowflakes have been embossed to give them a bit more texture.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Embossing
Cute Card Thursday - No Text
Top Tip Tuesday - Open Challenge

Right Chris has just finished washing the cars so we are going to have a cup of tea and then have a stroll up the canal to the fish farm.  Our fish haven't got any food left so we'll have to stock up and then if my feet can hold out we'll carry on up the canal to Daisy Nook country park and have a wander around the garden centre, it's such a shame Craft Central aren't there any more but they do a lovely Choc Fudge cake in the cafe, yummy!!

Hope you enjoy the walk etc..... plus the cake.
I love the way you've coloured his boots & the sense of dimension you achieved with those trousers & his coat & hat. I agree - there has to be sparkle for Christmas.
