So another Christmas offering from me and this time I have used one of my fave collections PICKNIX 3 – NORDIC WINTER which features this awesome vintage Santa image! Isn’t he absolutely fab!

For some reason this design seems to have taken on a sort of circus/carnival look, maybe it’s the stripy sweeties??? I’ve no idea! Maybe it’s just me. 😕
