Firmly in the Clutches of Christmas

Hello.  Welcome.  I have been thinking outside the box so you may have to just go with me on this idea!  Mojo is jumping up and down and generally driving me to distraction.  Won't knock it, it doesn't happen every day, but I really should be doing other things!!  I console myself in the knowledge that I did clean the kitchen yesterday.  Sorry you missed it..........

Sometimes a challenge theme really grabs my attention.  In this case it's MFP CAS and Picnic.  Also, in case you missed it, there's quite a lot of Christmas in July challenges going on.  So I decided, in his time off, there was the chance that Santa would have a picnic.  Gingerbread men and candy sticks on the menu!!!  And it's not even midnight!!!  

I made Santa's picnic rug using some christmas patterned paper and some wierd wool.  I could only find neon green fringe wool but, after thinking about it, I decided that santa probably is saftey conscious.  After driving a load of reindeer about the sky at night you would be wouldn't you?  So maybe he would have a neon fringe on his picnic rug.  The gingerbread man, candy stick and sentiment are from MFP Holiday Tags set.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Oooh look, rain!  Maybe the craft room is a good place to be.  Hugz
