Good morning everyone - this is my latest card for our little Christmas Card Club - I should have posted it yesterday but it coincided with my OSAAT DT post and I don't like posting two cards on the same day - yup I'm odd!  This fortnight it was Hazel's turn to choose a theme and she asked us to make a card with something beginning with 'S' on it.   I have a lovely rubber stamp with a Santa Claus image but I just couldn't get it to look right, maybe 'cos it is fairly small, so I put my 'tries' aside to use at a later date.   I had a trawl through my folder of what I call my 'Bought or Won' digis and came up with this one.   I have a gorgeous pad of 'First Edition' papers with a Nordic feel to them and that was it - a match made on Planet Susie!!!

This is another fairly flat card so wonderful for posting!    As usual the photo isn't picking up the glitter on the bottom of his jumper, the snow, the snowflake corner and the snowflake border.  In real life it really does sparkle and shine - two more 'S's methinks!


7" x 7" Kraft card - Anna Marie Designs
Nordic Christmas Paper Pad - First Edition
Christmas Tree No 3 die - Dee's Distinctively Dies
Snowflake Corner die - Memory Box Dies
Frosty Border die - Memory Box Dies
Large Circle die - Spellbinders Dies
Large Petite Scalloped die - Spellbinders Dies
Christmas Sentiment - LOTV
Gems - Papermania 
Star Dust Stickles

I hope you like my Christmas card with the Nordic feel to it, I just love these papers so much.  I must thank Hazel for choosing this theme because I've enjoyed it and there was soooo much scope to it!   There's a huge pile of cards ready for Christmas now - yay!!!

Anyway ta ta for now peeps I shall pop round to see all the cards made by the CCC girls later - unless I have already visited you.

Please take care and if you need a hug, here's a virtual one just for you!!!

Big hugs to you all
