Undercover Santa

Sometimes the best laid missions don’t always go according to plan. Our rescue of the enslaved elves last night was in process, all the little guys getting loaded onto the sleds, when the man in the red suit returned earlier than expected! It’s a good thing we had the snowflake army to fight with us as there was a fierce battle that ensued. I rolled a +17, adding to my flame spell which weakened the fat man. The Guardian of Glitter used her Sparkle Blast to blind the chap while the Lady Commander of Copics went in for the kill. After the slave driver was vanquished, we realized that we’d need a replacement to deliver all the presents next year. Really...how hard could it be?
To make this quick Christmas creation, I cut out the bird Santa Claus from the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. I embossed his hat and beard with the Cuttlebug. The sentiment came from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. I added some blue rhinestones for some extra bling.

This card in disguise will sneak into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Merry Christmas
Card Crafter’s Circle Challenge #54: It’s Christmas
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #51: December Celebrations
Paper Playtime Challenge #91: Winter Fun
CHNC Challenge #104: Anything Goes for Christmas
Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge: Santa Baby
Hooked on Craft Challenge #27: Christmas
Die Cuttin’ Divas Challenge #95: More Holiday Spirit
Christmas Cards All Year ‘Round December Challenge: Santa
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #4: Anything Goes

I’m certain this little bird will do a fine job next year delivering gifts across the realm. With his disguise, no one will even know the difference. He will also surely treat the elves better than that overweight fellow we felled. Quest complete!
