Jolly old St Nick! Tuesday Taggers

I watched a brilliant programme last week presented by Fiona Phiilips Christmas Tales - The Legend of Santa - I missed the first 15 minutes of it but really enjoyed seeing how different Countries have taken up this legend and made it their own. From how he got his Red Suit to how he has grown from a tiny elfen man to the Huge jolly character he is today - Brilliant stuff - You can watch it on the internet on ITV player if you fancy it!

Anyway here is my Tuesday Taggers project for this week.



Papers are by Stampin Up - Image is from a Tim Holtz Stampers anonymous set - I always think this one looks older than the others. Ive used distress inks and pearl powders to colour him and also a touch of promarkers here and there. I love this ticket sentiment by Magnolia and can see me using it lots in years to come!

Keep an eye out on Jill at The Stampmans blog over the next couple of weeks Jill has some fabulous giveaways and prizes lined up!

Have a brilliant day!
