Don't Tell Santa

 Hello friends, 

It is so hard to believe that it is December.   We started a new tradition in our house with the Elf on the Shelf.  We decided to modify the tradition a bit.  We took out the "Snitching" element.  I'll try to share some photos of the shenanigans.  

This card continues on in my Silly Christmas series.  It looks like Santa has a secret! I hope it gives you a chuckle.

I picked up this stack of reindeer a last Christmas.  They look like they are having a blast.   These guys were a little bit of a challenge to color.  Originally, I wanted each deer to stand out.  I debated using different sets of browns to color each.  However,  I started with the E30 series and kept working with it.  I liked where this was going, so I kept with the series.  I made some a little lighter than others.  I feel like doing it this way made them feel more like a cohesive unit.   Did I make the right choice?  

The sentiment is from Crackerbox stamps.  I thought was another perfect Christmas covid stamp.  We all might need a little help to get through this holiday.  😁😀

Are you going Nutcrackers?


This card is perfect for a quarantined Christmas.  We just recently decided that we will not be traveling to see family for Christmas.  It was a hard reality to accept.  Oh well... it will make next year that much better.  Since most of us have been locked up since March it is easy to understand that we are going a little Nutcrackers.
