Going Round in Circles

This title seems to summarise my life at the seems that there is too much to do, and too litlle time to do it in! As a result, I have been burning the midnight oil a little bit lately and I am starting to feel a little bit jaded. But now, here we are, halfway through the weekend and I'm taking a bit of time out to catch up on my blogging!

But the theme of my post wan't really meant to be about me, it's more about some of the lovely challenges that are out there this week, on a circular theme.

So here's a card that I made using the Santa set, recently released by Stamp Addicts......

As you may have realised, I am a fan of this particular set as I can't get enough of this podgy chap and his wife.....and if you caught the stamp addicts show on C&C last Thursday, you may have seen some of my Santa cards on there....I can't deny's still such a buzz for me.

Anyway, back to the card......This is actually quite a tiny card, but I am quite liking the tag in envelope effect and it is the first time that I have tried out this style, even though I have admired other peoples efforts from afar many times!

I have used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch to create the border and coloured Santa in using my Spectrums.....he's going for his blue look today!

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:
