Ho, Ho Ho!
Isn't this little guy cute? He's a digital image from the "Let it Snow" sheet at Rick St Dennis's Etsy shop.
I found this artist while checking out a blog that lists free digital images. He goes by either Rick St. Dennis or Don McAfee, and he has a very unique style. All his characters have an elfin look.

Here I've used an image from his "Let it Snow" digi sheet.
This happy little girl with her old-fashioned banana curls is all dressed up in a Christmas tree costume. I used Stickles on the tips of the branches and Crystal Effects on the star and ornaments.

I Love Raggedy Ann!
This is another of Rick's images from his Santa's Toy Store set. I can't resist a Raggedy Ann image! There are two cute elves in this set, too, as well as more toys. After coloring the dress blue, I added the little daisies by touching the tip of a Copic colorless blender to the paper making five little circles for each flower. I then colored the petals with a white gel pen and used a yellow Copic marker for the centers.
