Jingle Belles #10

This week's challenge over at Jingle Belles is "Home for the Holidays".

Guest star Rose from Rose's Happy Place came up with the challenge after finding herself singing along to "Home for the Holidays" and so, this week we should make a card inspired by our own Home for the Holidays ... it might be our childhood home, our current home, or our home-away-from-home.

My mind went off in all sorts of directions, considering an alternative colour scheme of red, white and blue to represent going back to the UK for Christmas, through to something German now that home is here. 

But in the end, I went with Santa. 

I believe

Do you?

I believed in magic right through my childhood, refusing to listen to friends who told me otherwise. I knew that Father Christmas came to visit me each Christmas, even if he didn't visit any of my friends.

Father Christmas appears to have lost my address the last few years, but I am still a big believer.

So a simple card for this simple sentiment. 

The red bling is for the pretty fairy lights that were always the main attraction for me on the tree.

Want to get ahead for Christmas? Why not join us all over at Jingle Belles? The prompts are great and that pile of Christmas cards is so worth it! With the number I need to send each year, I will be done and finished long before December!
