It's all about the Big Guy

.... Santa that is ... 


I finally found a space in my head to think about a Christmas card for this week's challenge at Jingle Belles Rock ... the theme being Inhabitants of the North Pole .. Santa ... Mrs Claus ... reindeer etc., 
I confess I didn't read it properly at first ... thought it was just Santa ... But no matter ... I'd have picked him anyway ... 


He always makes for "good times" ... ok so I've had some rotten Christmases but it wasn't Santa's fault


He makes me think of glitter and bows and has so much charm about him


Only fair that I should embellish him with these things

And the Ribbon Girl has a bingo card challenge ... 


Think my card qualifies for both diagonal lines ...
Ribbon, Bow, Twine ....... Image, Bow, Charm ... see the little wooden house charm?
It's my first time playing at the Ribbon Girl too

And yes I am still playing with Butterflies ... I'll share some more creations in the week ... 
In the mean time why don't you check out these two challenges  

Have a beautiful Sunday 

Thanks for stopping by

well, i know you said you were having trouble getting into "xmas mode" but truly, no one would ever GUESS... this is beyond fabulous, there are soooo many gloriously cool details: that little "jingle belle", the drifted glittery "snow", the amazing burlap mat (!!!) i just cannot stop gazing at this and thinking which bits i want to try out FIRST! ♥♥♥

Now this is the type of Santa I like best, the 'old, classic' one, there's a great vintage feel to your card which I truly love. That icy blue is perfect!

This is a beautiful card, Ros, I love your big guy! I got up early to watch the women play doubles, then fell back asleep and totally missed the match I wanted to see, but I am so happy and excited the Andy Murray finally won at Wimbledon. Maybe this will be the breakthrough he needs and Gold for Great Britain is fabulous! Have a wonderful rest of your evening!
