Forget the List Santa - I've got the COOKIES

It's chilly in Ohio this morning.  Frost on the ground in those fine white crystals that loos so soft.  The bird bath was frozen over and it's definitely feeling a bit like Christmas.  Now, I know, it's not even Thanksgiving Melissa, so put away the tinsel and let's think turkey.  But, as a crafter, you know, Christmas has to start early so you can finish all your Christmas cards!  So here's one of mine.

I used the cute SugarPea Design set, Here Comes Santa Clause .  Colored them in my Copics on a single layer card.  I usually don't do single layers.  Even if I'm making a CAS card I usually will have a layer on top of my card base.  However, I did it different this time and like the results.  The only thing I would change is the Santa in the foreground gloves and trim.  I  made them black thinking cuffs of the gloves and boots.  The other Santas I colored with the white fluff trim which looks more appealing to me. 

When I was finished, I didn't like all the white space in the top left so I added some simple red and green washi tape.  These little Santas are super cute and would look great on some tags too.  I think that's my next project with them.
