Workin' on the List

 I'm still working on my Christmas cards.  I think I need around ten more, maybe a little less. 
 For the card I used an image from Jan's Digital Stamp Shop  called Santa's List. It comes in  a regular digi format and also pre-colored.  The pre-colored is gorgeous, but my family has come to expect me to have colored the cards.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I used digital paper from Carina Gardner for the chair and the Background.  I just realzied that I forgot to put the sentiment on the front.  Oh well, I'll put one on, but I won't bother to photograph again. 

I had an interesting time trying to paper piece the chair.  I thought I had cut it all out.  I looked at it the next morning and realized I did not put the piece of chair inbetween his legs.  When I was cleaning off my desk the night before I crumbled up all the scraps and threw them away.  I don't know how many people paper piece, but if you ever try to reprint pieces to use it's almost impossible to get them exactly the right size again.  So to the trashcan I went.  I pulled out all my papers and unbelieveably the piece I needed  was the only piece that didn't get crumbled.  Thank you, God!
Oh well, housework is calling my name!

 Copics:  BG0000, 000, Coo, 0, 1, E00, 11, 40, 42, G14, 
N1, 3, 5, 7, R11, 22, 24, 27, 29, YG63
