Santa Series Number 5 - Goodnight Santa

Going back to a Santa in his red pajamas (like the rolly poly Santa) but this time it is Goodnight Santa with hands, legs, socks and teddy bear.  Yes, a teddy bear!  The guy's life revolves around toys - don't you think he is entitled to one toy all his own?

You can have him "bald"



Or you can give him a nightcap



Or you can give him a different kind of nightcap.



Can you tell I LOVE the bald head and curly beard Santa?  I will show one more totally different "look" Santa later in this series but this style is my favorite so he gets the most attention (and props).



The hat is the same as the traditional hat I've been showing but a simple switch from the small oval to the word window punch and some green instead of white turns it into the nightcap.  The second "nightcap" is from the stampset Cheers to You.

Awwww, love the teddy bear, and the second nightcap is hilarious! I kinda like him bald, and the socks are just what he needs to keep warm.

You are one talented lady, what would we do without you?

Hi Ellen...struggling to make my own version of your Santa can't get the legs right...which punch did you use?

Can't wait for tomorrow's installment!

Hugs

You can find similar legs on this post

And I'm not giving detail directions on any of these - the poll I took said you all didn't need them so I didn't write anything down. I can tell you the bear is primarily 1 inch circles and word window punch. That should get you there! Just look at it - look at the punches and ta-dah, the light bulb should go on!

Good luck!

I love all of your creations, but these might be my favorite. When you had them all lined up for the last picture it reminded me of the "see no, hear no and speak no evil" monkeys.

Have a great weekend!
