When Santa got stuck up the chimney

The theme for facebook's Sunday's with Santa today is 'humour' so I reached for one of my favourite Anita Santa stamps - just coloured the chimney with a copic. I found a freebie clipart scroll on the internet, played around with it digitally to include the words of the song.

This is also another card for my own CHNC challenge 70 - to include a sentiment without the word 'Christmas'.

The background paper is an offcut, so this is my first visit of the week into the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 18 - I certainly needed my wellies on and I didn't want to get a wet bottom on the swings! The little shiny Ho Ho Hos have been in my Christmas stash for ages (haven't a clue where they came from originally).

I stuck to a black and white theme with just a bit of red for 2 sisters 89: colour challenge - black and white with only a hint of 1 other colour.

For some reason the white here looks a shade of pink - IRL it is definitely WHITE.

This is also for:

Desert island crafts 29: I chose - no flowers, red and black and favourite song
Clear it out: based on a song - paper, stamp and Ho Ho Ho are old and needed to be used
Dare to be sassy 122: Christmas card with a sentiment
Christmas stampin all year long 8: anything goes
Sparkles forum Christmas challenge 15: colour me happy - I love black and white with a touch of red
Sentimental Sundays 100: cards for kids
Twisted Tuesday 4: for the funny kiddos
Aud Sentiments: anything goes
Let's craft and create 43: sentiments - main focal point (hope the song counts as a sentiment)
Victorine 32: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
