Christmas is Coming at Try it on Tuesdays.

Christmas is coming and it won't be long, so I hope you are all getting prepared, and to help you along, the theme at Try it on Tuesdays this fortnight is 'Christmas is Coming'.
I've been busy making cards, and I'm pleased to say they're all finished and and in their envelopes just waiting to be posted when I get back from holiday.
My card background was embossed with a CB folder, then inked with Peeled paint, Ices Spruce, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany and then brushed with Perfect Pearls before it was dry, it has a gorgeous sheen which doesn't show in the photo. The Santa image is from Rubber Stampeed.  Santa's key was made with a Martha Stewart mold and UTEE in the melt pot.
The design team have all been busy, so pop over here to see what they have been doing.
I'm off tomorrow for some winter sunshine,it's a 'big' birthday for DH and we will be meeting up with some friends during our first week and then family are joining us for our second week, so I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to it.

You did a great job making the background paper. Great idea to give Santa a key, so much easier to use the door than going down a chimney, lol. Your card looks fantastic!
