The Christmas Count

Here is what has been occupying my time this week, the "Christmas Count". This is little Count Vacula, dressed in his finest Christmas attire carrying two sugar-free candy canes (he is such a health fanatic), and a little present for his sweetheart.

He is full of little details on his hat (striped hat-band and holly), his cape (dots and stars on the front, and holly and a swirled-mint button on the back), his vest (a swirl-mint button, matching trim and kerchief to the hat-band pattern), swirl-mint stud cuff links, 2 removable candy canes and shading to round his form.

He is hoping to sit down for a nice cup of herbal tea flavored by his candy canes with his sweety after she sees what the present contains. Because they are vegetarians, you guessed it, it has "carrots" inside!!!

Have a great weekend all!

He's awesome Laurie! And would certainly stand out amongst all his Christmas friends :) Good thing he's a vegetarian!

I am in love! I like a guy that knows to show up with candy and a gift! He's just too cute. Should I want to hug him? Because I do. :) Great job, Laurie! xo Pam

I think this might be my favourite piece of yours thus far ;)

Hey Laurie, another great character. Love the way you combined Christmas and Halloween. I always have such a hard time with Christmas. Everything comes out a little twisted, I should just follow your great example.

Another fab creation! I wonder what Santa puts in his stocking???

Thanks Roz and Aidy!!

Thank you Deborah!

Thank you for the compliment Pattee!!

The Count's vegetarian status makes him a bit more popular at Christmas gatherings Jo!!

Thanks Pam...he gives out smooches but sometimes with a bit of an overbite!

You know how to make me blush Ghoul Friday!! and me both, but I love Christmas so I try to marry the two together!! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't!

Oh Lynn, he gets coal when he is bad and asparagus when he is good!!

Thank you all!
