A Dude's Christmas...

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!

Santa was fussy-cut, embossed from the back to round the image and mounted on foam tape.  Papers are re-cycled from scraps.

Happy Easter...

This crazy Rick St. Dennis image is one of my yearly favorites for Easter... combined with the sentiment of "you BRIGHTEN my day" by The Stamp Doctor
 it will work nicely for my funny friends.  
Add in how fun it is to color with Copics 
and it is a win-win!
Happy Easter to all of you!
