Honest Santa I've been good.....

Evening Folks,
I hope you're all well....I have been kept busy with this card today. Honest I feel like I'v been making it for about 2 years lol! I hate being blonde & getting distracted by the littlest thing...anyone else struggle with this??

Anyway back to my card......I've made it for the challenge on the Truly Scrumptious blog their challenge is a sketch with the added twist of an easel card...now I didn't really need an excuse to make an easel card as I do love them but I saw the sketch & didn't really love it at first but after looking at the DT work I thought this is one challenge I must do....so well done DT!! Lol

My card is 6x6 bigger than I normally make...but seens as it's Christmas why not.....card is from the Paper Mill the vintage christmas box, paper is Forever Friends cosy christmas, brads are dovecraft, corners have been embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots, & plain & scalloped ovals cut with nestabilities on cuttlebug, Magnolia Tila & Santa Edwin colored with pro markers.

When I first saw this Tilda I knew I wanted to have a greeting with something about being good.....and measuring it with the size of your arms as I used to do this for everything when I was little!!! I hope you all like my little card for today& can pop back to see me soon!
I'm off to see what else I can come up with.....TTFN X x X
