'Dear Santa' All images from 'Sleigh Bells' rubber plate by Oxford Impressions.
Oh the excitement and anticipation, waiting for Santa to deliver his gift.
I don't think I ever wrote a letter to Santa when I was a child, but I can't help wondering what I might have hoped for?
This year Sean Alexander became one of Santa's little helpers.
A gift for Grandpa!

I don't know about you, but I'm still delighting in Christmas. It is such a special time of the year as we celebrate and remember the birth of Jesus. So it's been lovely to be able to put this card together today and reflect a little more about the true meaning of Christmas. I've been pondering how extraordinary it must have been for those shepherds to see angels appear in the sky announcing the birth of this precious child.
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
Book of Luke

Here's my first interpretation of this year's 12 Days of Christmas Tags by Tim Holtz for the 4th Day of Christmas. I have not been able to find the time to make the tags for days 1-3 yet, but do hope to catch up when I can. I really wanted to try the technique used to create the snowflake embellishment... which I did and the rest of the card just fell into place. I'm planning to make miniture versions of Tim's tags as I didn't have any large tags at home. I think it will be fun to display them together this Christmas - just hope I have more than one to display by Christmas!!!
The only 'Tim Holtz' product I had on hand was alcohol ink (and not the same colour), so I've adapted most of the tag as best I could, even down to creating my own 'wish ticket' with a scrap of paper and alphabet stamps.
I've really been enjoying visiting here and seeing how Shelley has been adapting things for her tags. Thanks for the inspiration, Shelley!
