Well, here's my first attempt and you can see I have used the Sugar Nellie stamp that was on my desk on Wednesday.

Although this card is tiny and so needed to be kept simple and not over embellished, I couldn't give up everything - I needed a cute stamp, lace and bling. I took the paper round to the back as a finishing touch and also decorated the inside of the card.

- Stamp: Sugar Nellie - Santa in Chimney coloured with Promarkers; Sentiment by Basic Grey - stamped in Versamark and embossed with Heat It Up embossing powder in silver.
- Design paper: Docraft A5 Paper Pack Penelope and Percy
- Other: Santa's outfit edged with Fluffy Stuff and silver glitter, chimney edged with white glitter; paper lace from Siesta Craft Christmas collection and the box embellishment by GCS International, Gold Label Peel-off stickers by Craft Creations; 3-D foam dimensionals.
I'm still learning to colour in with the Promarkers so the sack and the chimney gave me something to think about. It has helped that I've been watching some very clever demos on You Tube including the Lily of the Valley demos which are brilliant.
I'm pleased with the result - cute but not skimped. I'm off to make a few more now.
Bye for now,
