Yep, I've Got my Methods

Good afternoon everyone.  Hope you are having a fun (or relaxing) weekend.

I've decided I'm going to try to make 1 Christmas card a week so I am not rushing next Christmas, like I did this Christmas and here is my first one....

This cute Santa is from the Paper Shelter and it's name is in my title.  I have coloured him in wiht ProMarkers.  My papers are free from a magazine and my Poinsettia's are a Britannia die from Joanna Sheen.  Everything else is from my stash.

  1. That sounds like a good plan. I'm making Christmas cards throughout the year, so happy to see others do as well, good for inspiration and mojo. I often feel I've got little mojo in December, there are so many other things to enjoy this month. This card is adorable, lovely papers and a traditional feel. Cute Santa image.

  2. Love this card Michelle, such a great image and the papers are fab. Loving the look of the poinsettias, not that I need any more dies mind you!! xx
