Twas The Night Before Christmas

Hello Nomad friends.  I have been meaning to join the Christmas Kickstart challenge all month so I decided it was time to pull santa out of the chimney and get with it.

I used this really cool Creative Expressions Festive Frames - Twas The Night die set.  Love the emboss detail.  I kept it simple but when I am feeling more fussy I might have a go at paper piecing this one, or colouring it.  I thought that black card was a funny shade!  Against the red it is obviously dark green.  Where be my glasses????   Love Santa's legs hanging out of the chimney.  Is he stuck??  Falling down?  Or going up?   Hope that's not a real fire in the basket there Santa!!!  I just added a piece of green and gold ribbon to the bottom of the card to add some Christmas bling.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
