Another New Year Diet??

I've been singing since last Friday - I think I'm driving hubby mad though, because I can't stop singing "When Santa got stuck in the chimney!" It's the girls at humbug hall to blame though, for the current challenge at Bah! Humbug! they want cards that make you giggle. As soon as I saw this, I knew what I wanted to do - but I had to draw it first. I decided to create a new snowglobe sheet with Santa stuck in the chimney because a snowglobe seemed the perfect home for an image like this. The new sheet also has 4 sayings and I've used one of them here. They all begin with "When Santa got stuck in the chimney he began to shout" and the one I've used here finishes with "I wish I'd joined Weight Watchers!!"
I added the sentiment to a tag from one of two new sheets of journalling tags that will be in the shop very soon too. My colouring medium is promarkers and white glitter. I've gone for the red and white theme again and used some lovely red mirri that I've embossed for the snowglobe base and white pearlescent paper for everything else. Red mirri homemade card candy finishes the corners.
Thank you for the inspiration again girls and I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
