Well I thought I had finished my cards off for this Christmas but discovered that I had only made one gift or in this case cash holder for my neighbours two teenage sons, I think I was a little distracted by one's behaviour and wondered if he would still living here for Christmas this year...
So having written on the card for his brother I dug around in my papers to find a larger paper set as I folded and cut this card out myself (bonus that I got to use another envelope I bought in a slightly odd size). I stuck to a simple Santa image so I could play with the ladies over at both 12 Months of Christmas Challenge (this months optional theme is Santa Claus is Coming to town) and Christmas at Sweet Stampin' I added a single word sentiment, he is a teenager after all, they are the masters of single word sentences!!
