Saturday already, don't where the time is flying too at the moment.  Not enough hours in the day.
Trying to get some decorating done before Christmas too.  I am now asking myself why!!
Anyway I had planned to do lots of crafting today but best laid plans etc.  Did strike a couple of my list but not enough.
Here is my offering to blogland for today
This is a lovely Molly Blooms stamp that shows an exhausted Santa on Boxing Day.  I really enjoyed colouring him in.  Of course, he would not be complete without some glitter.  I edged the image panel with some distress ink just to try and make it a bit softer, hope I have succeeded.
The background paper (from Papermania) has been matted onto red cardstock.  I then added three green glitter squares matted onto red cardstock on the right hand side of the card.  The sentiment was in my stash box (not sure where I got it from or when).  A bit of ribbon, some decorative pins and gems completed the card.
Here is a closer picture
Think this Santa may be making an appearance is some more of my cards.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

hiya, such a fun image and gorgeous distressed card :) thank you for the lovely comment on my little bottle dresses tutorial, I have done larger bottles, if you scroll down my blog posts you will find them, but they are a different style and created uniquely for occasions, but there is a base starting point, hope you find them and have fun
Hugs Kate xx
