Another die cut Santa

Evening all.
Looks like I will be spending my birthday at the dentist tomorrow. Would you believe that I broke a tooth whilst eating a salmon salad for tea! I think part of my filling came away as well as it feels cavernous at the back. 
At least the wasps that have been plaguing us in recent days appear to have been dealt the killer blow by the very nice Welsh wasp man who came this afternoon, rather later than expected as the pesky blighters have been keeping him busy along the Welsh border today. I hate the little black and yellow stingers, jaspers as my chemistry teacher from Bristol used to call them, they are horrible in any language. 

After my play with my new Santa die, I just couldn't stop making another card, this time I kept it pretty simple.

Plain A6 top fold card stamped with a few stars and a sentiment from Crafters Companion in sparkly gold EP. No shading on his beard just his face and hat coloured with Copics, simples. May be making a few more of these.
