Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Good afternoon Crafty Friends.  Hope you are all well today.

My lovely Son Brandon came back from his School trip yesterday.  He was there for 2 nights and 3 days.  First time ever he has spent that long away from me.  He has lost his voice and I'm not sure if it is from shouting so loudly with the other kids or a cold as he did have one when he left.  I put him to bed at 9pm last night and as soon as his head hit the pillow he was gone.  He did say he had a nice time though but with him being a lad, he doesn't say much lol.

Anyhow enough waffling on, here is my card...

I'm pretty sure that some of you will have this stamp and die set from Simply Cardmaking and Papercrafts.  My fella came home with these for me and I love it.  I die cut the sledge with red and brown card.  I stamped the reindeers and added silver twine to them as their reins and then stamped the stars underneath.  Santa is stamped and coloured with ProMarkers.  The sentiment is also part of the set.  The papers are LOTV NitWits and everything else is from my stash.

Another card completed for Christmas!!!
