Lots Of Toys

This card is to be entered in:-
Truly Scrumptious - challenge 22 - sketch + vellum

I have made this card for Bobby's nursery class as they have asked us not to send individual cards to each child, but to send one to the whole class. Then put a contribution into the fund. I used the Truly Scrumptious sketch, and they had an added challenge of using vellum. The lemony colour behind Santa is actually gold vellum with white snowflakes, only the colour hasn't shown too well. I wanted to keep it simple as the toy backing paper is quite busy and bright but ideal for the children.

A little up date about my boys to those of you who ask and send good wishes, Bobby my youngest is much better, just a bit of a cough left now. My Eldest was back to the doctor again yesterday, still no better. They have given him some more anti-biotics to be taken with the ones he's already on and an inhaler to be used when he is short of breath or his chest is hurting. When both courses of anti-biotics have been taken they will see if he's asthmatic.
So I can't see him being back at school before Monday, it's a shame as he's been off 2 weeks now and earlier in the year he slipped on ice broke his foot (metatarsil) and tore a ligament in his foot, and was off for 6 weeks, I've had a letter asking me to explain all the absenses this year from school. I've rang them and asked if they read their files before asking these questions, there short answer was NO!

Oh well we'll get everything right before Christmas hopefully.
Have a nice evening
Happy crafting

Hi Tracy,
I am so sorry that the boys are still not 100% and I hope you get to the bottom of Scott's problem and that you can all have a settled Christmas. Your card is simply gorgeous. Beautiful papers and a brilliantly coloured image.
Thinking of you all,
