Ho Ho Ho

I've really enjoyed being a guest on Cute Card Thursday and this week will be my last and the challenge is from Fran, her challenge is for No dies or Punches what was she thinking.
The image I first chose I imediately went to my nestabilities and its while holding them I realise she means these too.
So I choose this High Hopes Father Christmas who would be quite happy to be cut into a rectangle and it was down to last years Poinsettias I brought and some ribbon of course you could also use lace but I thought the ribbon was enough.
I didn't layer Santa's sack because I still trying to think of the thin letter slot and then I promptly stuck a bow on the card and the poinsettias have bobbles inside them which means its now a large letter.
I can see clearly now, it now someone has washed the world, you think I've gone crazy. No not crazy just got my new glasses!!!
