A Quick Vintage Christmas card

Hubby and our 3 sons were all here early and left slightly later than they planned but I've heard from them and they made it to Melbourne without any problems except for rain. Adrian said he was pretty cold though!!!
I have the two youngest grandchildren today and they are also staying overnight with me and are both sound asleep tucked up in our bed. I told Layla to choose a book for me to read and she wanted to know when Papa was coming because he normally reads to them. She was disappointed that he wasn't going to be here and told me he was taking too long to come home!!! She chose a book about a postman and every couple of pages is a big envelope and a letter that he is delivering. They come out and you can read them. e.g. a postcard to the giant from Jack, a lawyer's letter to the wolf wearing "grandma's " clothing without permission, an apology letter from Goldilocks to the Three Bears etc. She enjoys getting the letters out.
I've been working on DT cards and also helping Layla make another card, she is really keen to make one when she is here.
So the card I am sharing is a quick one using paper and a couple of diecuts. No stamping at all.  I haven't done the inside yet, so may stamp a verse on the inside when I get around to it.
Well here it is.......

Maroon cardstock from stash for the basecard (topfold)
DP is from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad ~ Dear Santa Collection
Image and sentiment are both from a vintage Christmas diecut packet also from Kaisercraft

 Thanks for stopping by today, I managed to do a small amount of commenting this morning before the kids arrived, LOL I woke up early when hubby got up and then thought I might as well get up and say goodbye to them

Take Care and have a great weekend,
