for this year's Christmas card I revived a santa I doodled years ago on a note pad;
I scanned and positioned him in a snow land I staged by introducing a few old newspaper snowflake cutouts; eventually he became as real as I wanted him to be! While holding a Christmas tree, he carried my family's Christmas message/wishes to our loved ones. For our holiday party invitation and party favor card I used the snow flake background "scene", suggesting the peaceful landscape after santa has passed through...
Happy, peaceful and full of love Christmas to all!
