Christmas Card Club "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"

Good morning all.

It's time once again for our little Christmas Card Club to show our wares...it was my turn to set the  theme of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".
Here is my make:

Using my favourite Father Christmas image from Joanna Sheen's Vintage Christmas CD. Papers are from DoCrafts. Mat dies are all from Spellbinders, reindeer from Tattered Lace and snowflake was a magazine freebie. Border punch from Tonic. Sentiment from LOTV. Finished with a few gems from my stash.

I've used virtually the same layout as my last CCC card and that's another special to add to the pile.

You'll find a list of the girls in my sidebar if you'd like to see their interpretation of my theme.

Challenges entered:
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
ABC Christmas - Q for quantum leap (d for die cuts)
A Snowflakes Promise - anything goes
Winter Wonderland - Carol's or songs (Santa Claus is Coming to Town)
