Edited to say Finished my card it is below this project now:

****So are you ready for my Projects???  Well Here goes.  I do have one more project that I am finishing off and I hope to add it to this post later tonight or in the morning but I just did not quite have time to finish it in time to add it to the blog hop, but it uses Santa's List the image I am previewing and it also uses Christmas Ally we released a few releases ago and it is a card for a friend or niece or nephew or child that Has Santa and his List and Christmas Ally and her list and it says Have you been Naughty or Nice??  It is really cute if I do not toot my own horn a little bit so I want to finish it off and add it to my post later.****

Santa's List (Image) - Childrens Christmas List Pads:

In this first picture you can see all 3 of the Christmas List Projects I did.  One for Piper, Willow, and Tucker.  Each Pad is a full pad of paper my friend went to an office supply store and bought those legal pads that are bound at the top, and she had them cut the pads in 4 sections and then she had all these really great pads to decorate anyway you want and give out as little gifts!!!!  I loved the thought so I got 3 pads from her and I decided to make these Christmas Wish List pads for my kids.  I think I am going to go back and put past years wish lists on them too so I can keep track for some day when I have time to actually do the scrapbooking!!!  LOL!!!!

I thought these would be perfect to keep a memory of what the kids have wanted for Christmas Each year and to go into their scrapbooks some day too.  Plus as they get older they can write their list all by themselfs.  What do you think???

Here is a Close up of Willows Note Pad with the New Character Cafe Image Santa's List.  The Paper Scroll Santa is holding  of is actually blank so you can write anything you want in it!!!!!

Here is Tuckers Close up.

The full view of Piper's List.

And the Close up of Pipers Note Book with the Santa's List image on it.

Colored with these copics:
R00, E00, E93, RV21 (Skin) Hair C2, Santa Suite and Hat - R20, R35, R37, R29, Boots, C2, C3, C5, B100 Gloves C2 on edges. 

I also added liquid applique to all the furry parts of santas coat and heat set it with my embossing gun to get it to be all 3-D and Puffy like puffy paint it adds a lot to the image I think!!!!  I put a little bit of shimmerz on his coat and boots just to give it a tiny bit of bling too!!! 

Santa is attached with a Mini Library Clip from SU! and the ribbon is the wired sheer organza ribbon in 1 inch from Hobby Lobby in bright red color.  I used glue dots to attach the ribbon to the notebook.

Well I am going to go upstiars and work on finishing that last card I wanted to post with these projects so I hope you enjoy these projects!!!!!

Edited to Say:
Finished my card and here it is:

Above is the Full Card with Christmas Ally  and Santa's list images both available for purchase at The Character Cafe Store now!!!  Link above in post.

Christmas Ally and Santa's List images Colored with these copics:

R00, E00, E93, RV21, R20, R35, R29. C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, B100, E31, E35, E37

I used liquid Applique on all of the parts of Santa and Ally that have fur on them I made it puffy by heat setting it with my embossing gun.

Hard to read but I wrote in at the bottom of Ally's Scroll Naughty List and at the top of Santas List Nice List

Below is my all time favorite ribbon it is wired extremely sparkly silver bling ribbon from Hobby Lobby I love love love to use it and I wish you could see in the picture just how gorgeous it is!!!!
