Plum Purdy Santa

Well yesterday was a bit of an ordeal! I started feeling sick yesterday at work, tightness in my chest, indicating a whopper of a chest cold coming on, congestion....all that fun stuff. I come home, lay down for a nap when I get a phone call that my son had been taken by ambulance to the ER! He had stayed after school to see the football game, and was with a bunch of friends in the Walmart parking lot next door. Apparently, he was fooling around on a shopping cart, slipped and fell, hitting his head. Supposedly, he was unconscious for a few minutes. He doesn't remember any of it. They did a CAT scan (I got to watch, now I can say I can see into his head, lol!) and everything seemed fine. Thank God! So other than a massive headache and a sore neck, he got off easy. Phewww!
Now, onto happier things. I looooooove this Santa and Gingerbread image from Plum Purdy! I know, I know I say I love them all. But I really, and truly love Renee's style, from the first time I saw one of her painting books many, many years ago!
I added a little Liquid Glass to the candy cane to really make it shine, and there's a bit of glass glitter on the holly berries to make them look 'frosted' with ice. Awesome stuff.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend everyone!
