ABC 'E' for ELVES and FAIRIES

We had some lovely entries to our D for Decorations challenge :-) even though we are still in February it is a good idea to get ahead with Christmas cards so we don't have the last minute rush :-)

The theme for the next 2 weeks on the ABC Christmas Challenge is

E for ELVES with the extra option of Red and Green :=) we realise this is a diffy one so you can use Fairy's too :-)

We are being sponsored by our teamie Lacey who owns the store Stamp and Create :-) Lacey is offering a fabby prize ,,, pop over to the challenge blog to see it ! She also very kindly gave the DT some lovely ribbon and charms to use on our cards :-) thank you Lacey :-) x x



I made my card following Jo's fab layout on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-) incidentally Lacey is sponsoring that challenge too :-)



I used a stamped image that Cathy very kindly posted to me, thanks Cathy :-) x x This one is a lovely Whiff of Joy Wee Elf image ,, very cute eh ! :-)
I colored the image with copics and inked the edges with a green/gold ink and embossed with sparkle EP, the papers are My Minds eye and the sentiment is Hero Arts :-) I used various punches and dies for the snowflakes :-)



The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see ,,, so please pop by the challenge blog and their blogs to leave a comment :-) I hope you join us for the challenge too :-)


I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
