Depicting the poem lines -

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

A really fun Christmas card. Your Santa image is lovely and fits the 'Twas The Night Before Christmas poem perfectly. The white, red and silver colour scheme is really pretty and I love the texture on his hat. Thanks for sharing with us over at Crafty Cardmakers and more. Sally.x.

Cute Santa, with the lovely beaded oval frame. Perfect background DP, especially with the wonderful dies. Like the red stenciling on each element. You've been busy with all the great projects shared above. Glad that the sales were good for you had some pretty items. Merry Christmas, TFS & Hugs too. Wishing you a Happy New Year as well.
