'av a reyt good Christmas

Hooray... it's the weekend.
Today I am sharing a fun card with you, 
that I made for my SIL and her hubby.
They live in Castleford - hence the sentiment ;-)


My jolly Santa is a digi from Make It Crafty.
He's coloured with Copics and glitter, cut out and popped up on foam pads.

I saw the semtiment on the net somewhere and it stuck in my head.
I knew it would be perfect for them, so I made it up on my comp.
and printed it onto Kraft card.



I just want to say a HUGE thanks to all my visitors.
I have had such a lot of really lovely comments recently
and I appreciate you taking the time.
I see some of you have added Google+,
I have no idea how that works,
and it's proving difficult to find your blog link on some of your pages,
but I will get round to you all, eventually :-)


Challenges.

Delightful Caroline! Your coloring of the image is really well done and I love that you let his boot escape from the frame! The sentiment is perfect for him too. Thanks for sharing your project in the “Any Sentiment” Challenge.

A great card, its so jovial. Can I ask what printer you use for your images. I am looking for a new one that can print on card and use my Copics/Promarkers?

Fab card Caroline - amazing colouring of such a jolly Santa and I do get the sentiment - I used to love in Garforth - just down the road from Castleford :o)
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Thanks for your swift reply. That is the printer I have, but unfortunately it has broken and I am trying to find a replacement. They don't make these printers now. Thanks again, Elaine
