Santa and Mrs Claus and some Tags

Merry Christmas!  My last Christmas card of the season, as always, belongs to Greg!  When I make his, I know for sure that I'm finished!

This one uses this lovely image from Eat Cake Graphics - Santa and Mrs. Claus
Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Sparkle added to Santa's fur trims (though I've just noticed I forgot to do his boots!).  Simon Says sentiment die; Paper Smooches snowflakes dies.  I've no particular reason why they're standing in front of a wall - other than it was a new stencil and I was dying to use it ;)
And here's my gift tags made with another Eat Cake Graphics stamp:
I added some clear gloss and lots of glitter to the stripy edge and to Santa's specs, so there's lots of the regulation Christmas sparkle ;)
