I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

The image is a bit smudged but since it was lovingly stamped for me and it only seemed to affect the writing and make it look like a young child wrote it, I decided to go with it.  I'll be honest, not my favourite colouring job.  I haven't played with my Prisma pencil crayons in a while and I am definitely out of practice.  On the other hand, I love how these mousey images lend themselves to simple layouts.  The images do all the work.  Again, I am using up DP from my Christmas 6 x 6 pad.  I promised myself it would all be gone before I bought another and I mean business this year.  I am trying to get it done before Christmas hits the stores so I won't be tempted.  I promise, I will try to do something non-Christmasy next for those that are starting to panic.  I was upset today because I hadn't really started my Christmas shopping.  When I'm working full-time, I don't get time without kids to actually do any shopping so summer tends to be my go-to time.
