Santa's sleigh

Good afternoon, all! Where has this week gone? I dreamed last night that I got everything ready for Christmas only to discover it was Boxing Day and I'd missed it! It was quite a relief to wake up and realise there is still time to get ready!

Here is a card that I made in various colours for several lovely friends.

Apologies for the glare from the silver mirri card, I was using my Daylight lamp and just couldn't get an unshiny picture!

The sleigh is a big Papermania stamp which I heat embossed, adding a sprinkle of glitter embossing powder to the mix to give a bit more sparkle, which unfortunately hasn't been picked up by the camera. The paper is by LotV.

The sentiment is also LotV. The snowflake is made with a Spellbinders label from the Floral Doily set. I cut 3 of them and layered them, I'm rather pleased with the effect!

I expect to be rather busy this coming week, which includes a trip to Shropshire to see our Granddaughter and celebrate her first birthday.

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Newtown. There are no words for what happened there yesterday.

I hope you all have a good week and that all the Christmas preparations are not getting to stressful! I'll see you tomorrow for the next The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge!
