Look what Santa brought

Sorry I haven't been about much this week but I have been attending a 3 day course on starting your own business. A really interesting 3 days but an awful lot to take in especially the finances. Good job I love maths and spreadsheets. I did manage to get a couple of cards made last night. When I saw last week's Friday freebie from Paula at Pollycraft I knew it wouldn't be long before I used this image. Isn't it a fantastic image for a man's card and just perfect for the challenge of feeling blue at Pollycraft and Christmas cards at Cards for men . I will be definitely be using this image again. I made an A5 card using the great sketch and theme of blue and silver at Crafts 4 Eternity. The image is coloured with Promarkers and I added glitter flocking to his hat. Papers are Papermania Winter's Tale. I cut some holly leaves using a Sizzix die and silver glitter card and added some red card candy for berries. I am also entering this into the Christmas challenge at Crafty Sentiments.
