Tartan Santa Stop Here

It has been wet and windy all week so it’s been a good excuse to stay in my craft room and make cards.  Since we moved to France, seven years ago, it has cost a lot to send Christmas cards back to the UK – but this year I’ve made some smaller cards – armed with the kitchen scales, to monitor the weight.  Perhaps not in the spirit of Christmas but any saving helps – leaving me more to spend on crafty bits and pieces.

This is another LOTV James Bear card – I love this little guy so much and I coloured him with promarkers and added frantage and glamour dust.  The papers are from LOTV classic Christmas, the snowflake is a Joy Crafts die, the sentiment is computer generated and I’ve added a couple of card candy.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges –

  1. This is just so cute – I love little James bear – I used him to make a card just last week and with that tartan paper too! thank you for playing along at Fab’n’Funky challenges this week hugs Judith x

  2. Another grey James bear with a difference . Definitely one to send to your Scottish friends. The tartan paper looks well with the holly . Santa couldn’t resist stopping for him .

  3. What a sweet image and such great paper choices. I can totally relate to your postage worries, it can be really expensive to send cards abroad. Might have to do the same and use the scales! Thank you for linking up with us this week @ Fab ‘n Funky 🙂
