Dear Santa,

Hi guys,
     I hope you all had a great weekend.  I know they are all over much too soon, but the M&Ms are happy as that just means they will be off school for two whole weeks very soon.  :O)  Oh,  if only I was a millionaire... I would take off every break they get from school just so I could spend time with them.  However until I do become a millionaire, I will just continue to save up my vacation time so that I might be able to take off Spring Break this year with them.   We are trying to play a little trip out of town to have some family fun and possibly visit some of our relatives that we never get to go see.  :O)  I just keep thinking Spring.  lol....
     Well, as it isn't quite Spring yet, I decided that today would be a great day to sit down and play with some Copics and a few of my Creeper Crew stamps from The Greeting Farm.    You all know how much I love me some Creeper Crew stamps, so I pulled out Lula & Harlow and came up with a sweetheart just waiting for the Big Guy to make his trip from the North Pole.  I had a lot of fun coloring Lula's hair and also using Harlow's outfit so that Lula wouldn't be cold while she waits.  I also used a few rub-ons to make a holiday boarder on my card and then I was done.  If you look real close you'll see that Lula is wearing some sparkling eyeshadow just for the holidays.  :O)
     I'm not too sure, but I think these papers are from last years We R Memory Keepers Christmas set.  I know that they are the 'Peppermint Twist' set and the the little sentiment in the corner is from one of the 4x6  flip cards pad that you can pick up for scrapbooking, but I just can't remember if it is from the 2012 or 2011 release.  Anyway,  I really love the richness of the greens and the reds in these papers. I am thinking that has a lot to due with why I still have them all in a baggy even though they have been well loved and very much cut up.  lol...
     Well guys, I sure hope that your week goes well and that if you haven't gotten your shopping done yet that you have an easy time of it when you do.  I am off to make a few more Christmas tags for the Santa's Socks that we will be selling this week at work.  Talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G

Love it! Gorgeous colouring on the hair and fab paper piecing too. I adore the sentiment... Probably the most suitable one for our household! lol. x
