Santa is on his way .....

Morning Folks!
Nobody panic after reading the title of this post, we are nearly halfway through the year (really?!) but the big fella in the red suit has not been sighted yet!
However, we would like to see your creations featuring 

Something a little different from me this time. Goodness knows why but I was tempted into buying a Create and Craft Christmas topper and decoupage kit when I saw it on Facebook last year - I already have some old Christmas decoupage sheets hiding in a drawer but there's nothing like a new box of fresh crafting goodies is there! I was very plesently surprised by both the quality and amount of stuff in the kit though and it made a nice change from stamping! You might well see more from this kit in the future, but for now I love a good traditional 'Coca- Cola' Santa:

I just added some gold glitter peel offs, a snippet of ribbon and some gold gems from my stash. The kraft bag is from The Works.

  1. Jacky, to start with....if you saw my craft room you would know I am 100% with you when it comes to...fresh new craft supplies. That said, I really like what you've done with your card and box. The plaid paper is gorgeous. There is plaid and then there is plaid and yours is wow. I like the gold touch too, brings everything to life. And who wouldn't love your Santa. Very nice use of your new kit. I look forward to seeing more.

  2. Wow I am loving your beautiful Santa card and matching gift bag. Beautiful makes. Hugs xx
