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:

Suzie's 365 photos 120: lights

I can't quite believe that already we're up to day 120 on Suzie's 365 photos - it doesn't seem possible that every soon we'll be into the month of May.

Anyway, back to day 120 and this is my 'lights' photo:

Ooops, need to replace a bulb!
