Ho-Ho-Ho- Santa is Here

Are you all ready for a little Ho-ho?  I sure am:) Here is a paper doll I created from an old Christmas card of my Mom's. It was a Hallmark card dated 1984. I scanned, printed and cut up a couple of copies, then re-assembled him. Painted him with Lumiere paint, added some glitter and  embossing powder for his beard and cuffs. I  exchanged out his walking stick and finished him off with a wreath instead. I made the wreath mini-style with a pipe cleaner from a package of pipe cleaners  purchased from the Dollar Store and cut it in half twisted the 2 pieces together and added some bling and ribbon.........wala instant wreath! So much more festive I think. What is your latest Ho-ho project?

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit

Excellent work!
