HO-HO-HO VINTAGE SANTA

Hello Everyone- Happy Monday! For those of you who know me well, you know I am not a big SANTA person, but really lean towards the real REASON for the SEASON. Yet, upon seeing the stamp set Vintage Christmas from I Brake for Stamps, I fell in love with this image and had to color it up! Here is a close up of this FANTASTIC image. I love the twinkle in his eye... DO you know what I would LOVE to see a stamp set of? Santa Claus bending down worshiping Jesus. Wouldn't that be a GREAT stamp?

I love this Santa, I am addicted to old world Santa and would love to see you draw one praying also.
I wondered how you made the trim and beard so white -then I went back and read flower soft...genius my dear. I might have to borrow this one from you

Big Wow Chris! You would have fooled me for not be a big Santa fan! Your vintage Santa is so wonderful and brings back a time when Christmas was less commercial! Beautiful!

PS - I am with you 100% on keeping CHRISTmas as the focus and not santa. Love what you did with this stamp though. :c) Hugs, Robyn
