A Little Elf


After using Little Elf Kit (can't find the card) well I remember colouring the elf in, found it, its hiding in a pile of coloured images waiting to be made into a card, poor thing I will have to remedy that.
Anyway it made me realise I didn't have the Elf holding a parcel (days when I didn't have a printer that didn't smudge) didn't know it was two elfs called the North Pole Employee's. One holding a parcel and one holding baubles which is the one I've used today.
I decided to follow the sketch on Sweet Sketch Wednesday and with some Doodlebug papers this is what I came up with although that space in the top right corner keeps saying to me fill me. But I'm resisting because the busy tree paper needs something to tone it down a bit or you lose my elf.
My favourite Martha Stewart Punch at the moment and it such a sweet size you can use to hide all kinds of dirty marks. The icicle punch is out too along with the glamour dust and my mixture of funflock and flowersoft for the hat and the hats pom pom.
Well Hubby wasn't working yesterday and the damp weather first thing was depressing and theres nothing like a shopping trip to cheer you up especially down to Burgess Hill although the stairs are a bit tricky. But I was mighty glad to go cos I've been after Glowing Candles by Memory Box which has been sold out everywhere except the last one I picked up along with some spiders which Hubby wanted to know since I hate spiders what on earth would I want to make cards with them!
