Magnolia Santa

Good morning :)
I hope you are well. It's a bit dull here this morning, I can't believe I had to put the light on to see the keyboard, oh well it's only 8.30 maybe it'll brighten up.

I made this card Magnolia Santa with presents as I love this Santa, it was a bit strange painting him in blue but I think it suits him :)
