Well it's another Christmas Card Club Challenge today. It doesn't seem like two weeks since the last one! This time it was Margaret's turn and she chose Father Christmas. I have had this stamp a few years but this is only the second time I have used it. Since it is the only one I have that features the old gentleman it is making it's second outing.

The stamp is from Penny Black and is called Christmas Ride. I think it will take Santa a long time to finish his rounds if he using this transport for all his deliveries! I added a punched holly sprig and a few mini pearls for berries. The image is mounted onto SB Labels 16. The backing papers are Papermania "Home For Christmas". The snowflakes are Marianne Creatable Swedish Ice Star which I coated with Glossy Accents and smothered with Glamour Dust. I also used Glossy Accents on his belt and boots to give them an extra shine. I then just added a few pearls from my stash.
Well I'm off out for a bike ride now while the weather is good. Only two weeks now until the London to Brighton ride and because of the weather and my visitors I haven't done a great deal in the last two weeks. I did a long hard ride on Friday and felt pretty good afterwards, so I'm not too worried. It's very hilly around here so it is certainly good practice.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend! I shall be visiting your blogs later today to see what I have missed over the last week!
Love and hugs from Christine xx
