He Is Checking It Twice!

Another Christmas card this morning – well now the postal strike is off I need to make LOTS of Christmas cards LOL!

Here is the Whiff Of Joy Santa Reading List and I thought I would try a minimal look with red, white and some gingham fabric.

I’ve coloured Santa with my Prismacolor pencils and added some sparkle with Shimmerz Paints Pixie Dust and Gold Glimmer Blingz and Coal Paints, that you can also get from here.

Today is NEC day for me and I’m hoping to catch up with some bloggy friends! So you guys all have a great day.

Ink – Versafine Onyx black
Colouring – Prismacolor pencils; sansodor
Usual Suspects – Double-sided tape; Paper trimmer
Other – Fabric; Button; Shimmerz Paints Coal, Gold Glimmer and Pixie Dust Blingz
