Christmas Card Club Challenge #18 - Magical, Mystical

Hi Crafters,

Thanks for sticking with me over this rather barren period of blog posting. I am still creating cards and projects at a rate of knots but finding time to share them is another matter.
However, I am here today for our fortnightly Christmas challenge, Rachel has chosen the theme and given us...

Magical / Mystical

I think Santa falls into this category quite nicely, after all we know he isn't real, don't we?

Oooooo I love this!!! The layers are amazing! Yup I've been working on my xmas cards as well but I, like you, am pretty sure I don't have enough yet myself either. I never usually do and end up sending out a few boxed cards. AWFUL right?! LOL!! Thanks so much for joining us for this month's challenge at Noor! Design UK "Layers". Good luck! Hugs!
