I don't have any young nieces or nephews and this Santa has been printed off for ages, when I saw the colour challenge at 52 CCT I thought he was ideal.His hat is a softer shade of pink with a green stripe, the colours are not as bold as they appear in the photo. I decoupaged the trim and pom pom on his hat and his nose.

I was away for a few days visiting my mother, the journey down was awful what should have taken 3 1/2 hrs. with 1 change of train, took nearly 6 with 3 changes, 2 of them at Perth where passengers were shunted onto and then off a train because they couldn't move the train with passengers on it, I wonder who made the mistake.You would expect staff to know the rules.

Still I had a good few days and caught up with my brother and his family as well.

  4. Aww this is really sweet Meg… what a fab Santa!! the decoupage really makes the image pop! I love his stripey hat! :-))
    Gosh that train journey sounds horrendous… I've had a couple of journeys like that when I travelled down to Devon and Somerset… long time ago… but it's SO awful having to keep changing… dragging all your stuff with you… dashing across the stations for connections! Glad you enjoyed your break though… must have been nice spending time with your mother, brother and family! and glad journey back was ok!
    Hope you have a lovely evening!
    Big hugs
