Santa or no Santa? AYLI

Another Christmas card from me today. I am hosting at

As You Like It Challenge

so I really hope you will pop over and take a look at what my team mates have made too.

It's Santa or no Santa? 

I have to be honest, over the years I have struggled to find Father Christmas stamps, rubber or digi, that haven't given me the willies!! They either have a sinister look or are just too cute to be authentic so for me it's no Santa.

I was enchanted by the Christmas bunnies from LOTV and bought a couple of them back a long so thought it was time to print and colour.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and used, I think, a First Edition pad. It cried out for a bit of gingham!!

I hope you are having a good week. I am taking it easy after a bit of minor surgery yesterday so hope to spend a bit of time quietly colouring.

Looking forward to seeing your Christmas cards featuring Santa or not!!

See you soon xx

Agree about the Santa images Sarah, cute ones are ok for children's cards but I prefer images like the beautifully coloured one you used here, the gingham ribbon was the perfect finishing touch

Jane Savage said...

Gorgeous card Sarah, love those little bunnies! What's with all these creepy Santa's..weird! x

Julie B said...

I agree, there are some very scary Santa images out there, unlike these cute critters. A perfect selection of DP and ribbon.
The fields are cut and the baler booked for Monday but looking at the forecast perhaps it will have to be Tuesday!:)
