Thanks, Santa!

Happy Christmas, everybody! It's the big day! I'm guessing you've dressed and stuffed your oversized bird of choice, and now you're dressed and ready to be stuffed in the company of family and friends. As this is a scheduled post, I have no idea what we're doing right now but I'm hoping we're all sitting down to a civilised feast, wearing silly hats, telling silly jokes and remembering pre-war Christmas celebrations, faithfully recounted by ageing relatives  ... it's what we do every year!

This is just a quick post to share with you a thank you card I made for my Santa. As a highly skilled "detective" (i.e. nosy-parker) I could not help but stumble upon the stash Santa kept hidden from me... in the linen cupboard of all places! Overcome by gratitude (and a guilt) I made this quick thank you card and left it by the fireplace. Here it is:

The papers and image are from PolkaDoodles Gingerbread Twist CD. The image is pre-coloured which made it possible for me to put this card together in a tick.  This ia great CD for the holidays... a must-have!
Instead of milk, my Santa got a generous serving of something spiritual - Jamaican Rum.

I used Spellbinder dies to cut out the Circles and Scalloped Circles. The greeting is from WaltzingMouse's Compact Sentiments set, stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy. The twine is from Doodlebug's Christmas collection. 

On the inside I gave myself plenty of room for a message.

The sketch for this card came from MojoMonday #273. I'm also playing with Tuesday Alchemy #46 "Anything Goes"; LEJ Designs #34 "Santa's Coming To Town" and Deep Ocean Challenge#41 "Santa Is Coming To Town".

Thanks for stopping by. Now get back to your families and enjoy the rest of this most blessed of days. I'll be back later with a gift basket... Intrigued?

Have a safe and joyous Christmas, y'all! I'll leave you with a glamour shot of Rosie, our resident reindeer. She's showing you her best side!
