Santa Magic


Yes another Christmas stamp I didn't use last year and another of my fave vintage images. Stamped with brown ink onto kraft as is the LOTV grunge sentiment. The papers are First Edition Merry Little Christmas. I used MFT layered snowflake and a Memory Box sleigh die along with a wooden reindeer. The Christmas box is coming along nicely.

Graham's Birthday is next month but as we have a lot planned for March and a special two day offer came up at Potter's Resort I surprised him with an early Birthday present on Sunday morning. We went to Potter's on Monday for a two day break in the hotel. With their midweek breaks they have even more activities and competitions than they do at weekends when they usually have star acts performing. The Potter's Theatre company perform during the week and having seen them at Christmas I knew they would put on good shows, So after a fabulous time we will be heading home after breakfast. Meals were included from dinner Monday tonight to this morning's breakfast so back to the reality of cooking later today.

Ooh this is gorgeous! I love that vintage Santa image, timeless and fabulous. Love the kraft and that gorgeous combo of papers. How gorgeous about your stay at Potter's Resort. Sounds like you've been having a wonderful time and how lovely to surprise Graham like that for an early birthday treat. He's a March babe too! So am I. Hope the back to reality of cooking isn't too much of a downer after your fab stay away. Hugs, Wends xoxo
