Father Christmas

The title of this post should really be Father Christmas - Take 2. I made this card a few days ago and once I saw it finished, I didn't like it so I remade it. I know I am my own worst critic but this time I was right.

I have 2 more Christmas cards to make in order to match my list and then I can get them off in the mail.  While I have enjoyed making them, I really want to do something else.  Now we will see how many I have to add the extra postage to.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

2 Sisters - Holiday
Craft Your Days Away - Buttons or Bows
Fairy Tale - Christmas
The Poodles Parlour - Christmas
Simply Create Too - All About Christmas
Totally Papercrafts - Christmas
Sassy Cheryl's - Anything Goes
