Ho Ho Ho

Hi Peeps,

Don't know about you but I still have alot to do for Christmas.  I haven't personally written one card and this may surprise you as a cardmaker, but I absolutely hate writing Christmas cards, always have and probably always will, lol.  I haven't even had the time or energy to put up any dec's but hopefully this weekend I will spring into action.

Today is the last challenge of the year for Marianne's Divas and guess what it is.....  yep, real easy "Christmas".  I'm sure this one will be extremely popular and we have some fab prizes so hop on over HERE to check out all the deets.

My card was a commissioned card and they wanted a Santa so I coloured up this cute little LOTV Santa.

Marianne Design Flowers
Lots of glitter snotex, love this stuff
Martha stewart branch punch (available from BunnyZoe)
Papers by Webster

I stamped  Santa onto Perfect Colouring Cardstock and used my beloved copics.

I put the whole card together using this fabulous tape from Xpress It.  It comes in 3mm, 6mm and 12mm widths and it comes in 25 and 50 metre reels which is just what I need as I hate it when the tape runs out in the middle of making a card and I'm sure you do too! 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

4 Crafty Chicks - Christmas
Paperplay - Christmas
Pixie Dust - Stitching
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
Freshly brewed - Christmas

Hi Hun, sorry, haven't been around the last few days...been (and still am) pretty busy at work, leave my bed at 4 am and come back late at night...terrible! I work in a law firm in the corporate and commercial team and it seems that all firms in Switzerland want to buy another one before the year ends... :S
Can't await xmas... 3 whole days off... seems to me like heaven!
Hate writing xmas cards, too...and haven't written any neither (except the ones that've reached the addressees abroad). Xmas-decoration? What's that???? Aaaah, the stuff in the attic... guess I will leave it there for this year :o)
But stop blablaing, Alessandra, get to the point:
Your card is divine! Have no other too tired to think in a foreign language :o)
Huggles, Alessandra
