Free Animated Santa Blog Graphic!

I found this vintage postcard of Saint Nicholas and fell in love with the way it represented Santa Claus.

Since he had a corncob pipe, smoke was a must in this design!

The lipstick for writing " Merry Christmas " gave it the whimsy I was looking for.

OMGOSH, Mo! I have to tell you a story. Our little SweetCheeks was snuggled up against Papa's side the other day. She looked up at him and said- Santa Claus used to smoke in the old days, you know! He started laughing and asked me why she said that- She said...You know.

He is a "secret smoker"..smokes cigars out back and thinks no one is "onto" him. I'd say she "outed" him pretty good. I am sooo stealing this graphic from you. Now..I just gotta figure out how to do it again! lol Thank you so much- xo Diana
