Retro Santa



This is one of my reasonably quick quicky Christmas cards this year - using this fabulous Tim Holtz Santa.  As you can see he stamps out in black and white but I added some colour to his cheeks and some glitter to his fur trim.  Of course, he had to have some red somewhere so I coloured around him with my Promarkers.


The papers are Papermania Mistletoe and the little house scene is  from K&Co.

The sentiment was borrowed from my lovely matey, Lesley!

I'm off for a spa date with my fabby M&S friends tomorrow - can't wait!!  Hope you have some lovely plans for the weekend!
