Naughty: adjective

guilty of disobedience or misbehavior

 So far in our Handmaking for the Holidays we have had 2 stops along the way:
 Chrissy from Muse in the Morning provided us with a bunch of hand made ornaments tutorials and  Heather from  Feather's Flights has an adorable Biased Apron to whip up for that home maker in your life! ( makes me wish I could sew, heck, makes me wishes I were a 1950's homemaker, too!!! lol...ok, kinda sorta on that one! ) Next up,on Wednesday will be Melissa from Love Bug Living...I can't wait to see what she has come up for us for the Holiday create-a-thon!
Meanwhile, in the hills of North Carolina I am still creating Christmas cards for the Art MoB store, I am hoping that December will be a busy month for us! ( November kinda stunk, it was VERY slow until after Thanksgiving and then picked back up some.) But I am loving this card, I think I have saved Santa a trip MANY times over the years!
 First I outlined him in my waterproof Faber Castell Pitt Pen, then applied Art Grip Aquarelles to color in the flesh tone, using my water brush to smooth them out. The suit was painted in with Delta CeramCoat acrylic paint, the belt and shoes filled in with my Sakura Glaze pen, the fur trim is Ranger's Frosted Lace stickles and the beard is a layer of Aleene's Tacky Glue followed up with Plaid's Soft Flock fibers. The Naughty or Nice writing is done with my Ranger Distress marker in Antique Linen.

Did you get a lot of your shopping done? Are you decorating? I didn't do any shopping and the decorating seems to be over whelming this year!! lol Oh me, oh my!.....errrrr.....Ho, Ho, Ho!

No, no shopping done, no cards made and running out of time fast! Love how you've done your Father Christmas especially the fur and his beard. The sentiment is fab too!!! Wish I'd known that one when my daughter was small!! Might have saved some cash!
Have a good week and glad things have picked up a little at your art store.

How fun is that?!

We are almost done decorating, because we are having a party on Saturday, so I wanted it all done by the party!

Shopping is a totally different story though :)

Hi Sandee, that Santa is fabulous and I love the sentiment too. Been out shopping today, did pick up some bargains, but sadly, not crafty ones but have ticked a few off the Christmas list..... Hope things pick up for you at Art MoB. Hugs, Anne x

Hi Sandee,

Oh, I do love this card!!! Yep, I've saved Santa many a trip to my house too - hmm, maybe an entire decade!

No Black Friday shopping for me - painted a wall in my living room instead. I have bought something on-line today though.....

Also, no decorating since I'm hoping to get the condo on the market SOON.

Ha ha Sandee like that sentiment!! Now you do know me from WOYWW, you are often waving at me from the hills!! I have however been a bit AWOL the last few weeks - I don't join in if I don't have time to visit, hardly seems fair and I have been both busy and poorly just lately. So pleased you are joining us at TioT and thanks for 'following'. See you at the next challenge if not before!! Hugs, Cindy x (PS Good luck for Friday!!)

Sorry I'm so late visiting. I finally got my head out of my basement so I could stop by!

That card is adorable. I would hate to have to make a ton of them, but one of a kind is adorable. And so is the sentiment.

Now I'm off to see what else I've missed.
