Wednesday Wonderland #20

Just dropping by to share another two cards with inspiration courtesy of the delightful Marie, GD over at Jingle Belles this week who challenges us to think about holiday traditions.

I immediately thought about a year when Father Christmas brought me socks - lots and lots of socks! But wanting to make up two quick cards in under 30 minutes and not having any sock/stocking die-cuts handy, I might hold onto that idea for next week!

Instead I let myself be inspired by both memories and my trusty drawer of Christmas papers to come up with a card about Father Christmas and another featuring presents.

I was always so in love with the idea of Father Christmas and have many happy memories of lying in bed, hearing him rustling the papers of the presents as he filled my sack outside my bedroom door. Oh so magical!

And then on Christmas morning we would all pile into mum and dad's bed - including the dog! - to dig into that stack of pressies and see what the great FC had brought us that year.

These cards have triggered several scrapbooking stories which I will be capturing as soon as I have enough time.

But in the meantime, these are really simple little cards which *allow* the papers to do ALL the work for me. He he!

Happy Hump Day everyone and just to let you know, my pile of cards is almost done! How are you doing?
