3 Challenge Combo

I'm back!! I think I need counselling after not being able to craft for a WHOLE WEEK lol. My craft room is all done, my lovely hubby made such a brilliant job and I now have loads of storage and everything has a place. You would not believe what I threw out - the wheelie bin is full and it was only emptied on Friday. Our Ben's school is going to love him on Monday as there is piles and piles of stuff (most of it new and unopened) that he can take in for the bairns to use.

Right, seeing as I am so behind, I managed to make a card last night and am combining three challenges with it:
I used the fab Ismaki sketch this week, the charms fulfil the Spoonful of Sugar challenge and Cute Card Thursday is sparkles - well I think Santa's beard more than fulfills that criteria lol.

Apologies for the bad photo, my light box is not yet set up and the pic looks really dark - the card is much brighter IRL

I used Rubber Stampede Santa Collage stamp, coloured with distress inks.
Snowflake stamp is Hero Arts
Papers and sentiment is from a HOTP Christmas kit (QVC last year)
Scallop border is the Threading Water punch

Thanks for looking,
