Well Mrs. Claus didn't care for the dark hair on Santa, she loves how he has grown old with her, and she wants him to be around a long time (plus a couple of the girl elves were checking him out and Mrs. Claus has a jealous streak in her) so he's letting it go back to it's regular color, she did mention that she was worried about his cholesterol and his weight and with Christmas right around the corner she suggested he go on a diet.
So he cut out the cookies, and started to drink skim milk and he dropped the pounds pretty quick, ain't that how it is? Dang men!
Can you tell why he looks different?
While I tell you the recipe I will let you try to figure out what is different about Old Saint Nick. You can check out yesterday's card to see if it helps.

Well did you figure it out? I stamped Santa on the watercolor paper, and then I took a permanent marker and I drew his beard smaller and pointier, I added a few lines here and there for hair marks, then I cut him out and colored him. Makes him look skinnier eh? I know Mrs. Claus is happier that he is healthier.
I got the layout from a card I seen by Cindy Haffner (thanks Cindy, it took me a bit to read your watermark on the card).
