Here Comes Santa!

Time for another challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and this month's theme is Here Comes Santa!  Now that might have seemed like a stretch in July but now that summer is over and the holiday is looming closer, it's time to start thinking about getting that stash of Christmas cards ready.  Our sponsor this month is Funky Kits:
  
I used Copics to colour the image and the marker colours are E11, E00, E000 and R22.  I cut out the holly and berries from a second image and after colouring them, I added some green and red Stickles.  A Copic multi-liner was used to draw in the border.
Supplies:
Stamp and Sentiment:  Flourishes Santa I Believe
Fun Flock on the hat
Shabby White Frantage
Thanks for stopping by!
Challenges:
One Crazy Stamper - Christmas

Well Miss Marilyn - I guess you can start calling me Miss Fool now. It has only taken me a good three years to say this is who I am and this is what my style is. Thanks to you (and a couple others) I know what I like and what I don't like and what I like is this card!!! Hey kid I went and ordered from your blog. No need to thank me, I know that you are thrilled!!! Love your stuff Sugar!!!!
