Hey there, we were talking during my last MOT (Memories of Time) class when I realized I haven't colored a Santa in a while, so I broke out Chimney of Toys from Whipper Snapper Designs.  I picked up three really cool Santa stamps in my last WSD order.  I might have to ink up the others just because.  *grin*  Before I get into the card details...I have a winner to announce!  And the winner (random draw) is...Sara Rosamond!  Congrats, Sara!  Email me with your address and I'll get the die out in the mail.

Now, about the card.  It was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copics markers.  Gotta love a CAS layout this time of year, huh?  I seriously LOVE the way the bricks turned out!  I can't take credit though.  I would have never in a million years came up with that color scheme!  The credit actually belongs to Jennifer Dove.  You've probably seen her "Color of the Day" all over Pinterest.  Well, one of the colors was "brick", so I figured I would give it a try...really happy with the results!

Love this image, he's such a cute looking Santa. I really love the way you have coloured him and that's all that's needed on this card for a fantastic CAS look.
Congrats to Sara too, well done.
