DCM - Father Christmas

Now I love Christmas cards don't get me wrong but Christmas cards in June is a little too much for me. It's my brothers birthday on Monday and I always try and think of a fun idea for a card to make for him so when I saw Jo's dare for the Daring Cardmakers this week this idea almost straight away popped into my head.
The little Santa I cut out of a Cosmo Cricket paper tag I had fun browsing through my Christmas stash leftover from last year. I mixed in some other leftover bits and pieces of paper there's Lily Bee, Crate Paper and Bazzill card. The stickers are October Afternoon and Echo Park and Thickers - it's a real mix up!
If you want to play along with this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge head over there now and check it out. We've got another giveaway this week of some lovely Echo Park papers! www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com

What a brilliant idea to come up with an 'alternative' Santa card! I'm sure your brother is going to love it!
