Santa Claus is preparing for X-mas

With only a few weeks left till X-mas is here again, I've let our dear Father Christmas take the spot light for todays card. The stamp is one of the new ones over at Joanna Sheen's. There is a whole bunch of wonderful Christmas stamps in the Giordano stamp range. Fell in love with them the first time I saw them and are still aahhing and ooohhing over them. :)
In the corners I've used a stamp from Stempleglade grunge heart. Flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. My pearl maker pens has also been put to use after just standing at my desk calling out to be used. The ticket stamp is from Magnolia. For the first time in ages I have used my aquarell colours. It was such a joy to get them out again. Have hardly not used them since I had my big period of painting pictures 15 years ago. Have almost forgot how to use them. :)

I enter this card to the following lovely challenges:
* ABC Christmas Challenge - X is for X-mas
*Lexi's Creations - Traditional Christmas Colours
The Stamp man - Christmas

So far it's a really dull day over here in Kalmar and I am not in mood for much. I think I go and find something to watch at the TV and the rest for a while. Get some rest and then hope for some new inspiration to make a card or two. Hope you have a little sunshine where ever you are.

Hugs,
Marie
