Santa & his Reindeers

I really enjoyed making this card. I had fun colouring the minuscule images of Santa and his Reindeers and I felt liked a little kid again while doing so! I now understand why people take so much pleasure colouring in those Zen books. I think much has to do with it bringing us back to our…
