Bah! Humbug! #16

Most of the UK has been enjoying some lovely weather over recent weeks, which has made it difficult at times to concentrate on making Christmas cards.  However, we Humbuggers and our Guest Designers are very dedicated and have been beavering away over at Humbug Hall, determined to continue providing you all with ideas to keep you focussed on building up your stockpile in readiness for Christmas.  
The challenge this week is a nice easy one, as we realise that many of you will be busy with other commitments over Easter weekend, especially those of you with children on holiday from school.  So all you have to do this week is create something which features  
Santa Claus   
Didn't I tell you it was easy!?
When I was tidying some bits'n'bobs the other day, I came across some dinky little Santa embellishments which I thought would be just the thing for a nice'n'easy card as I'm still not quite ready for anything too complicated.
All I needed to do was choose a wee bit of pretty patterned paper, add some mirri card and BISH ... BASH ... BOSH! ... I ended up with a nice cheery card to add to my collection.
Now I've no doubt that you can do much better and if you'd like to prove it then nip across to Humbug Hall and join in with our challenge.   You can check out what the other girls have been making while you're there.

Naughty Mr Blogger !!! Sounds good though and yes I am typing this in middle of night - maybe I should go to sleep too.
Good night sleep tight - mind the alarm doesn't wake you - as if!!

Good to see you back Max and a shame Mr Blogger didn't want to show your card - look forward to seeing it in due course. I know what you mean about making Christmas cards in this lovely weather.

Love your Santa embellishments Max - they're fab. Love the embossed mirri and it looks like these cheeky chaps are climbing into the chimney to leave some pressies. Welcome back - we all missed you!

Hugs. Karen x

What a great card Max, I can't do a traditional Santa but do love the images of him.. The backing paper on this card is just the perfect combination for the Santa
Thanks for sharing
