Here comes Santa Claus

Well not yet but I'm amazed at how fast its approaching.  And scared, too, lol!

I have been making Christmas cards in an attempt to beat the rush and decided to use this adorable Santa Tilda that has been screaming to get inked!

Little Tilda is colored in Copics and then I used a White Sharpie Poster Paint Pen for her cheeks.  Her fluff on her Santa hat has been smothered in Diamond Stickles!  I used some old Martha Stewart Christmas papers along with DCWV cardstock.  The mistletoe and loopy circle die cut were cut with my Cricut Expression.  I then added some Xmas Red Stickles to the berries.  The green craft seem binding is also Martha Stewart and the red/white twine is from American Crafts.  The big red button I've had in my stash for a long time and was the perfect addition. 

What about you?  Have you started those Christmas cards yet?? 

Hoping you have a fabulous and crafty weekend!
