Don't you just love Santa???
It's a bit late for me to be on the computer, but I wanted to upload this before my bedtime. It's been a windy day here in Yorkshire today, and I'll be quite happy to get all cosy and snuggly in bed and close all the nasty gusts out! I hope no one has suffered any damage....especially in Scotland!
Old St Nick - and I may be a bit odd, but I do love colouring red! From what I read on others' blogs, I'm in the minority. Anyway, I've coloured him in using my promarkers... then obviously (!) used my glitter for his fur trimming (which isn't showing too well - photoshop has let me down...), and glossy accents for his shoes and belt, and a little bit on the bells on his brimming sack of toys. I've used a large oval nestie for the shape, and drew round it and cut for the extra red frame. I've used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called Holiday Ticket Sentiments, and added a red (bright red, not as photo shows sort of orange!) ribbon and bow... then a Marthat Stewart Holly punch with a few red gems for berries. The DP is from Kaisercraft from their 25 December collection.
I still have Christmas cards to make and am still enjoying making them.... think that will wear off soon though... LOL! Hope you're all doing well with your Christmas preparations - we're going to have a lovely weekend putting up the decorations and wrapping presents.... also going into Harrogate to see the lights and hopefully hear a brass band playing carols.... then I'll know it's the season proper!! LOL
Big Hugs to you all
