Letters from Santa with Chomas Creations adjustable holders

I'm sad to say that my house is getting to the sad age where the kids are starting to doubt Santa.  That just makes me so sad =(  I'm kicking it up a notch with some letters addressed to my kids from Santa.  Of course I couldn't use my own handwriting, and I want them to be handwritten, so bring out the Cameo! 
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable holders with gel pens to draw these letters from Santa.  But look close, notice anything missing in this picture??
If you noticed my arrows, you may also notice that I'm using NO MAT!  That is because you can add a 12 inch piece of cardstock right in your Silhouette machine without a mat and draw on it!  How awesome is that?  You do have to move your white roller over a notch (your roller is usually where I'm showing the #1, you need to move it to #2) so the paper will fit under the rollers.  You also want to use load media instead of load mat so that your writing starts where you see it on the screen in Studio.
I used the Lettering Delights thin font called Casual to write the letters to my kids.  I also loaded the envelopes straight into the Silhouette with no mat to draw their names on the front!

Don't they look like they are hand written letters!?  You can't get that from a printer!  And these are in metallic gel pens!
