I'm getting too old for this

You can just image Santa after all his running round falling asleep still dressed :D

This brilliant image is from Rick St Dennis and is available of Etsy - it's called Santa Nap Time
I've coloured the image with ProMarkers and done a very simple CAS card, he had to be the centre of attention.  He's just mounted onto some red card stock and then I doodled round the edges and added four red gems at the corners.

I've recently been shopping to Hobby Craft and found some small wooden sentiments.  This one was shaped like a cloud and it made me think of speech bubbles.  So I added some more red gems to make it look like this was what Santa was dreaming of thinking as he lays on his bed exhausted.  At least I hope it's his bed LOL!!

Happy Christmas card making :D
