Santa Claus is Coming.....

Good morning to all you lovely crafters on this very cold crisp morning, hope you're all wrapped up warm.
Just a quick post this morning. It's the start of our last challenge before Christmas over at
and the theme for this month is of course
We want to see Santa on your creations, can be paper embellishments, stamps, anything you want, just have fun with him.

Anyone getting excited yet?
My Daughter wanted to put the tree up already so knowing how well she likes housework I suggested she re-arranges the furniture in the corner where the tree usually goes and give it a vac and dust ready for putting up..... but she declined, ( hee hee knew she would..........) so the trees staying in the garage for a little while longer! Oh the joys of knowing your offspring.
My card is here anyway ladies

It's a bit hard to see some of the detail because of it being white.
