Anything Goes Christmas # 20

Hello again, we are starting a new challenge 
Anything Goes Christmas #20
Please pop over to see the wonderful inspiration by the DT.
Thanks to those who took part last month we had over 100 entries,
we were thrilled and inspired by you all. 
I stamped Ho Ho Ho for the background, using black 
and Festive Berries DT.
The main stamp of Santa is by Kanban, an old stamp but a useful one,
Coloured with Promarkers.
I used Fluffy stuff on his beard and fur on his suit.
It's such fun to use,  add to the area, heat it with your heat tool
 and right before your eyes it just fluffs up and stays so.
Thanks for your visit.
