Bespectacled Santa

I love the fun short sighted Santa images on The Wine Buffs Christmas Spirit CD from Katy Sue Designs. The CD has some great cartoons of Santa nd his reindeer friends, but here I have picked one of the toppers showing just Santa balancing along the top of a roof - you just KNOW he's about to step off and land in a snow drift, don't you?

I've added paper and a topper from the CD and some lovely self adhesive snowflake border, given to me by a friend, atop a strip of red card to make it stand out.

Challenges for this card:
CD Sundays - Father Christmas
Christmas Card Challenges - Santa and/or Elf
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - pick a previous sketch - I used this sketch from November  2013

Lovely fun image he appears to be oblivious to what's going on around him and as you say looks as though he's going to step off the roof into the deep snow. Thanks for joining in my challenge at CD Sunday.

I agree you can see he's had just a bit too much sherry and he's about to land somewhere. I don't have this CD but I do have the other one which I managed to buy this week.
I had to laugh at the image and it's a great card
Thank you for joining us at the CD Sunday
