No More Cookies for Santa!

     Today's card explains why nobody should leave Santa any more cookies!  Please, do your part and help keep Santa healthy.  :-D  The image is from Lacy Sunshine and they want us to "Include a hat" for this challenge.


     I think this Santa is one of the earlier images from Lacy Sunshine but I just love how Santa's shirt is stretched across his roly poly tummy.  I just knew from the expression on his face that he had to be eating rum cookies.  lol

     I printed the image directly onto the card front, making a single layer card.  I added the sentiment below the image before printing.  I colored the image with ProMarkers and added a little texture to the bag by 'dotting on' the blender pen after it was colored.  I used a glitter gel pen to add a bit of sparkle to his glasses and the milk glass.  The ribbon was in my stash and the three micro buttons are from Dress It Up.

     I think this is a perfect CAS card for a guy and it'll probably go to a son or SIL when Christmas rolls around.

Great one layer card Connie - and yep, you're right....Santa is getting a little chunky now! Um.....never heard of rum cookies though. If he doesn't want them maybe I do! Fun and cute card.

A sweet Santa, so beautifully colored, and a fun sentiment! Personally I find one layer cards incredibly difficult to make. Great job!
