When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers its Wednesday so its the launch of a new weekly challenge over at Crafting by Designs and our theme for this weeks challenge is Nursery Rhymes or Stories.

Our sponsor this week is

Prize - winners choice of 3 digi images

I must admit I struggled a bit with this theme but finally found a fab stamp called Santa Chimney for my card. He does look very old so I'm not surprised  he got stuck in the chimney at his age.!!
