Merry Monday #36 - Ho! Ho! Ho!

Hi Folks,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week.  I stamped the image twice in Black and Real Red.  I cut out the red chimney and added it to the Black image, coloured in the image, created the roof with the Scallop Border Punch and added some Dazzling Diamonds to the furry bits of Santa's clothes. I sponged the Brick Wall embossing on the White mat and the Basic Grey roof.  The Sentiment is cut from the Happy Holidays stamp from the retired stamp set Glad Tidings and the Ho was highlighted in red.
