To the North Pole!

When I was a kid I loved watching claymation Christmas movies like Santa Claus is Coming to Town and The Year Without a Santa Claus.  I own the DVDs of these special movies so you can be sure that these were (and still are) an important part of the Christmas season for me.

I bring this up because the card I've got for you today shows off an image from Toy Land that is tailor made for one of those movies:  Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  If you are unfamiliar with the story, it's basically an account of how a toymaker named Kris Kringle came to known today as that fellow we call Santa Claus.  And the first time I laid eyes on this stamp set, I knew it would be perfect to pay homage to this sacred (at least to me) movie!

The challenge at Seize the Sketch provided a great layout with some nice space to show off the arrow pointing the way to the North Pole and Kris Kringle.  I added some snowflakes from Toy Land and Chill Out to further set the blustery scene.  Then I added some wide washi and a bit of ribbon as the flags.

Thanks for stopping by!
