A Christmas card created for Sundays with Santa

Good Afternoon, yes I know its been along time since I posted a card here on my No.2 blog but as you will have probably already read that firstly I had my two grandsons staying for a week then my right eye had to have laser treatment due to a torn retina and for the last week we have been looking after our dog Missy who has been really ill, but due to the steriods shes now taking its quite amazing how much they cause a dog to feel hungry, my gran used to say "You lost your appetite and found a Donkeys" and shes certainly done that, we have to watch we done over feed her as she has another 5 days worth of the tablets to go before she finishes, just hope it doesnt revert to the problem we had before with her not eating.
Anyway todays card was created on a idea which Sue Wilson had, she made a slightly smaller card design but some unknown reason mine has come out a lot bigger, but Im not going to reduce it now it will stay the size it is and Im quite happy with the result.
The stamp is a Justrite one and the die also that it is cut out with and layered on, the other diecuts are Nestabilitie dies that have been cut down to create this square, and they are layered on snow ice from Cosmic Shimmer crystals that have been stuck to the card with the double sided sticky film also from Creative Expressions.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Shirley I am so glad that the tablets are working and that Missy is now eating again, I will keep my fingers crossed that she will be fine when the meds end. Shirley your card may have been quick but it is still very beautiful, love it.
