It's been a while since I presented my last cover here. Leisure time has become a luxury, and so there is little time to do the things I would like to do, unfortunately.

Here, however, I can show you a somewhat recent production. I know, it's not a major achievement, but I think it's better than nothing and, moreover, I wanted to give a sign of life.

Hope you enjoy it.

A very beautiful Elvis/christas cover. The design itself really looks colourfull and a well balanced to me.(y)

I would like to know if you made the small-santa's yourself?:D

Thanks for all those nice comments, folks. Well, I know it's Christmas soon ... :lol:

As for those little Santas, I made them all myself, that is, I caught them in our garden, glued them to a piece of paper and flattened them with a fly-swatter, so that I was able to scan them. I cleaned them in Photoshop and inserted them into the cover.

Apart form Photoshop. I think that's the very same technique the used back in 1971 when these little Santas appeared on the US single release Merry Christmas baby / O come all ye faithful. :D

Here is the backcover without tracklist, so that you can use it for your own Xmas compilation.
