Waiting For Santa

Good morning all!
It's Saturday time to kick up your heels!lol
Have you started your Christmas cards yet?
I've got a little bit of a jump on them as I've been playing with 
The Christmas Box CD-Rom from La Pashe.
Here's one of the cards I made!

I made an 8"x8" fold back card using 
If you're not a fan of CD's, you can purchase the printed sheets here

Here's a closer look at the image, it just so cute!
I love his little onesie!
I remember looking out of the window as a child, watching for
 a glimpse of  Santa & his reindeer going about their business!

I added a bow made with silver twine & sparkly funky fibres 
with a little jingly bell! The DP is from the CD-Rom too!
I added some glossy accents to the lights.

A side view so you can see the layers.

Inside the card, I've added a panel to write on, with a row of holographic 
mirror card die cut snowflakes!
Thanks for popping in!
If you haven't got the CD yet, you should seriously think of
getting it! There's so much more on there, to create all your Christmas projects!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafts-Too Challenge You - Christmas Festivities Twist: What Christmas means to you

What A Night!

Happy Thursday all!
I'm super excited as I have a day off work & my mum & I are
off  through to the Hobbycraft show at the SECC in Glasgow!
We didn't manage last year or the year before as mum wasn't up to it but
glad to say she's much better now & getting better all the time!.

Anyhoo, it's time for my Just Inklined card for this week!

Have you ever overdone it?
Got excited & celebrated just a little bit more than you planned?
Then you'll know where this image is coming from! Lol!
What a night!
One of the exclusive images from 
This CD is fantastic, it just keeps giving & giving. There's so much on there!
You can buy it for a snip at the moment over at Just Inklined

Here's a closer look! Lol! I actually feel a little bit queasy for her!
Coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers.
I added a few little up-cycled sequins & a gem which came in a little packet 
attached to a top I bought. The ribbon was from the same top.
I also added a few little streamers which I made using strips
of CS which I wrapped around a pricky tool to make a spiral.

The sentiment was made on my PC & I added a single line embossed border.
Thank for popping in! I hope you like my card!
