     He's almost here!  I've been good all year and am expecting a sleigh full of presents!!  I should know because I purchased them!  Santa knows toys but not stamping.  
     The big guy is from Flourishes.  He was on sale during Black Friday along with a couple more sets that jumped in my shopping cart.
     I CASED him from Linda Duke.  I should say I was inspired by Linda.  I can't hold a candle to her work. You "must" see Linda's card.  It is stunning. 
     The beard is white liquid applique.  It wasn't a true white and it bothered me.  Then I thought how old Santa is and his beard is probably a tad dingy.  I tried liquid pearls on a scrap piece.  It worked but was really too white.
     The glasses, eyes, holly and mouth have crystal accent on them.  Flower soft is on his cap.  Martha Stewart glitter is on the tag.
     Hope you buy find yourself a sleigh full of stamping toys!
     Santa can be seen in these challenges Simon Says Challenge, Creative Belli, Sentimental Sundays, Stampin For The Weekend and Creative Inspirations Challenge.
                                   HO, HO, HO!
