Santa's Been!


Well Christmas is over for another year though I must admit I still count the days in between Christmas & New Year as "Christmas Time" lol. Father Christmas came ;o) & I got lots of lovely pressies including some gorgeous crafting goodies.

This card was made using my new Basic Grey "Infuse" papers given to my from my dear friend Linda. I am so pleased that now I have some BG papers I can enter their challenge which at the moment is "Going Green" & to use something recycled on your card. I used some cardboard off a box & some ribbon off a present. I used sketch #28 by Mariska from Sketch Saturday as their challenge is to use one of the sketches from any of their previous challenges.

It was so nice to fit in a bit of crafting today especially as I had to go to work this morning (& at 8.00 am how awful is that the day after Boxing Day lol) so I wasn't sure if I'd be too tired. Hopefully I will have a bit more time in the New Year to be creative.
