Santa is Coming to Town


I'm doing a bit better with my allergies but some of my meds make me sick. So, while I could hardly stand up without being nauseated, I thought I would color this image I have had for a few years and never used.  When I first started making cards, I didn't think I would be able to color it. Now, I find it rather easy...just a little time consuming.

I want to enter my card into the challenge at Splitcoaststampers for the Queen for the Day challenge.
The queen is Claudia aka cjzim and this is the card I cased. I really just kept the sketch she used thinking there wasn't much else I could do with this large image.

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge- Make a card using a Santa
Jingle Belles-Create a card with a living creature on it
Christmas Cards All Year Round-I'm doing a card with a traditional Christmas image with non traditional colors

Recipe:

Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Soft Suede
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics, Stampin'Up! Dazzling Diamonds, glue pen

So sorry your allergies are still and issue meds are messing with you. Hopefully some rain and cooler temps will calm things down and you won't have to take the meds.

Fabulously coloured image and a wonderful Christmas card.

What a beautiful Santa image and you color so beautifully! I keep thinking I'm going to do more with coloring and have even invested in some Copic markers but there's too little time and too many toys! Feel better soon. Nausea is a beast!
