Fusion: Christmas Eve Ride






I have never ever watched a Hallmark Christmas movie......I know that's hard to believe!  I am a diehard fan of the old Classic Christmas movies and also a total Diehard fan - yes I consider that a Christmas movie!  But once in a while I try something new.  I watched The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix this week.  Kurt Russell made me laugh out loud playing a sassy Santa! I made this card after the movie and must have been inspired by the beautiful scenes of Santa and his reindeer flying over big cities. So grab the remote, light the fire, make the cocoa and enjoy!




I love the traditional holiday photo at Fusion this week!  That was definitely my inspiration!  Use the photo or the sketch or both and join us at Fusion!

Sweet card! Love the Christmas scene that you've created. I'm a Die Hard fan too...so much better than the cheesy Christmas movies!! :)

Love this...I love anything with a Santa silhouette! I have never watched a Hallmark movie either...or Diehard, LOL! Maybe I should expand my horizons...although I might watch the Chronicles movie this weekend while decorating my tree!!

I know there will be those who are offended by this... but if you've seen one HMM? you've seen them all! But - if it's a good cry you're looking for - Hallmark's your station!
Die Hard? that so surprises me! I did watch the entire series. Want a bit more Bruce? Try "The Kid" it's got it ALL!
So the reason I stopped by... LOVE your card love, loVE, LOve it!!!

Love your take on the inspiration photo, Linda! Your Santa and reindeer are perfect with the modern city below, and your sky is beautiful!
I consider Die Hard a Christmas movie, too :) and I love it! Thanks for the heads up on the Christmas Chronicles...I've bookmarked it for the weekend!

Such a beauty, Linda! I love a card that tells a story. This one provides a gorgeous backdrop for Santa and his sleigh. I might have to take in a Christmas movie this weekend - I usually kick things off with "Elf." <3

My favorite Christmas movies are the Rankin/Bass ones The Year Without a Santa Claus and Santa Claus is coming to town - none of that Hallmark stuff for me! Your card is a classic iconic Christmas scene. And fabulously done!

I love this beautiful Christmas scene! Your background is gorgeous. As for Christmas movies, I prefer Christmas Vacation and Elf -- they make me laugh every year.

I've not seen The Christmas Chronicles so must hunt it out and give it a go. I don't do soppy so thankfully we don't have Hallmark here! Your card is perfect for the challenge - so fun!

Linda your card rocked the inspiration photo! I LOVE the Diehard Series and watch them over and over and over. I can't say I've never watched a Hallmark movie, but definitely cheesy ... and... you always know the endings! so give me Bruce any day!. Hugs.

Oh my gosh! What an adorable card! I love the scene you have created. I love the skyline. Great placement of the reindeer and sleigh in the sky! Thank you for joining us at Festive Friday!
