The Night before Christmas

Hi Everyone,

here is my weekly Christmas card - playing with Merry Monday - the theme is the night before Christmas. I am going with those lines:

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, 
With a little old driver, so lively and quick, 
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.  

It kind off resulted in a modern version with those Paper Smooches skyscrapers. The Santa sleigh is from an old Inkadinkadoo set. Added some Washi tape and white paint snow splatters

Also linking up with:
CAS Mix-up challenge - stamping and splattering
Die Traumfabrik - Hüter des Lichts/Rise of the Guardians
ABC Christmas Card Challenges - J-Jingle Bells K-keep it simple

Zum Mitnehmen:

Another card I love, been a lookin for one of those santa and sleighs, looks perfect with your city scape and skyline. Love that finishing touch with the washi tape and splatters.

Ein toller Hintergrund, vor dem die Silhouetten sehr gut wirken! Auch gefällt es mir, wie du die Washi Tapes hier eingesetzt hast.
Kurz war ich erschrocken und musste schnell einen Blick auf den Kalender werfen. Puh, es ist noch etwas Zeit für die Weihnachtskartenproduktion. ;))
Liebe Grüße

Wie... du bist schon wieder bei Weihnachten??? Hab ich was verpasst???
Deine Abendhimmelkarte gefällt mir sehr gut.
Ich denke, wenn man ganz genau in den Himmel schaut, kann man jetzt schon den Weihnachtsmann mit seinem Schlitten über den Sternenhimmel sausen sehen, allerdings nicht in schwarz wie bei dir, sondern in sternenweiß.
Dir und deiner Familie ein schönes Wochenende

I like this town at night.

This is great, Cornelia. Definitely different than mine but more like what I think Clement Moore had in mind when he wrote the poem.
