This Santa is by the artist Elizabeth O. Dulemba - a freebie from her website called Coloring Page Tuesdays. Ms. Dulemba is a very accomplished author and illustrator of Children's books and she has a wonderful archive of images that she offers free as "coloring pages". Many of them include the subject reading or in a setting with books. She is very talented and I encourage you to check out her free images!
I colored the image with Blue-Violet Copics. I think because of the shine on the card base, I did not seem to get the same color reflected on any of the three shots. The closest colors to reality are in the photo below - right.
The base card is a re-cycled slide mechanism from a card I made ages ago and did not like the final results. I have no idea of the source for them. I think the lack of frou-frou, the colors and the use of a mechanical interaction make this card Dude friendly!
