Just Us Girls #113 sketch....jolly ol St Nicholas

Hey JUGs fans!  Time for some sketch fun hostessed by our darling Elise!
This sketch is an easy winner...perfectly balanced plus a signature Elise move with the little tab on the right.  I can't wait to see what everyone does with this versatile sketch.  For me....I had to throw down a little Santa goodness...

This fab Santa image if a Dover clip art that I printed with good intentions LAST Christmas!  doh!  But hey, he's still as inspiring as ever and I was able to pair him up with Papertrey ink DP's, CTMH ribbon, plus some trinkets from my stash...wired evergreen, golden Christmas sprig and my own handmade "bauble" using vintage pearls and jewelry maker's head pins (color me *inspired* by sir Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of Christmas!)

I was able to able to customize the head pins to link these pearls together....ohhhhh myyyyy, I see a new habit taking shape!  I need more jewelry findings like PRONTO!
Be sure and check out the awesome Just Us Girls designers and leave these hard working creatives a little love OK?  I know they will appreciate it. 
and our ultra fabulous super talented guest DT, Lenet!

Thanks SO much for spending some time with me today!  I appreciate it so very much.
