ABC 'J' for Jolly old Elf Challenge

Hi all :-) Did you know that there are only another 224 days left to Christmas !!! yep !! not long to wait :-)

This fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge it is the lovely Carissa's turn to choose the theme ,,,,

'J' for Jolly Old Elf 

I love the series of Elves designed by the lovely Mo Manning and I couldn't resist using this cute Little Elf Ava, I bought this as a digi but it is also available in rubber :-)

I  thought I would make her look like she was swinging on a star ,,, does she ? :-)

Ooh ! I have to tell you how I made the starry background ,, I mixed some white embossing paste with Simon's Audrey Blue Ink and a dollop of glitter bead gel and used a falling stars stencil. It is so pretty and sparkly IRL :-)

We are sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts so a fabulous prize on offer !!!

one lucky winner will receive a £10 gift voucher
