Santa's Spy & Helper

Have you ever wondered how Santa was able to know who was naughty or nice 24 hours a day for 365 days a year?

I've solved that problem. He has spies, lots and lots of them. They're in your house. They're in your garden. They're everywhere!

Here is one of Santa's little sneaky spy helpers!

 Eye on the Prize, one of the new release stamps from SCACD's Mechanicals Set #2, was stamped with Black Tuxedo Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Diamond Glaze Dimensional Adhesive was added to his eye, to the lens of his eyepiece, and to the lens of his telescope. This did not hurt him, but if it did hurt, who cares? He's a spy, so he deserves it!

The patterned papers are from the Traditions and Joyous 6x6 pads by Authentique. The gear corners are gold metallic cardstock that was cut with an Alterations Gears die, quartered, and added to the corners. The sentiment was cut from gold cardstock with the old Snow Angels QuicKutz die set. 

Thanks for visiting today!
