When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney...

Good afternoon...

Today's card is a sneak peak of part of a wonderful range of Christmas stamps being launched by lovely Lili of the Valley at the end of August.  (Start saving your pocket money peeps because they are super cute)!
I coloured this gorgeous santa set with Copics.  

I then cut each Santa out and mounted them on a background made with papers from Lili of the Valley's Krafty Christmas collection and an embossed piece of blue card.

I added some postmarks from LOTV's Grunge Christmas Postmarks sentiment set along with some Doodlebug Sprinkles and some Stickles.

Such fun...and there's not a lot else to be done on a very wet afternoon...
so here we are, some super Santa's...(and I can't stop singing 'when Santa got stuck up the chimney'..reminds me of when the boys were tiny tots...all say aaahhh)!!!
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges - 
Winter Wonderland - Christmas Carols/Songs 
(When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney)!
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes With A Stamp And A Die
As You Like It - My Two Favourite Embellishments (Enamel dots and sentiments. - 
 I love both of these because it is always lovely to pick out colours in the card design with gorgeous enamel dots and sentiments make every card so individual and unique)

This is such a stunning design, I could hardly tear myself away from checking out all the lovely details to come and write a comment!
Your beautiful midnight blue sky with sparkly reindeers is amazing and the Kraft papers against it looks divine; what a fab colour combo. The images are super cute (LOTV...goes without saying!) and I love how you arranged them with the postmarks...eyes open this time when stamping?!

I keep telling myself that I don't need these stamps but the wonderful DC samples are making that really hard to stick to!

Big hugs, Kat xx
