I would like to introduce you to Lil' Christmas Luca from Tickled Pink Stamps, isn't he gorgeous? I can see me using him on many more Christmas cards! I think the senitment from Whimsy Stamps Holiday Ticket sentiments fits perfectly, what with the mistletoe and what have you! :)

I have coloured Luca with pencils and cotton buds - I'm not sure whether this is the conventional way, but it sure works for me! :) I love the effect this gives. Plus - I can sit in front of the T.V and colour a load of images this way - not having to worry about finding matching coloured patterned paper and cardstock later on when I come to put a card together! Smart, you see!
I made some more of those sprial flowers - I seem to have an addiction to them - this time with some olive green felt! I've added a little red pearl to each of them. Some brown bakers twine threaded through the button makes it look all that more finished.
