Elf with Parcel


Finally a card that can be entered into its challenge on time, I've used the this week Sketch Saturday although I did have problems with strip going across. Originally it was just going to the MFT fence with the the icicles underneath but had to add the Memory Box scallop die to give it a nicer finish but then I discovered my elft was floating and had to add frozen grass (icicles border going the other way) to bring him to earth.
The papers are some gorgeous one from Stampin Up but in hindsight I should have coloured my parcel mainly in green so it stands out.
The cute Elf comes as a set from Mo Manning called North Pole Employees.


Here's the angle shot, it was all finished with twine and some handwritten tiny tags and some holly using a punch.
So far the quiet week I've suppose to be having hasn't lived up to it expectations but we had a lovely man come round and is going to sort out the building regs for the outhouse conversion and I think my builder nephew by marriage is hoping to doing during the winter has a lot of the work is indoors.

  1. Ahhhh Debby...this elf is a cutie patootie! Love the paper piecing (as always) and the design is fabulous.

    I like that you turned the icicles both ways to ground the elf...it looks just right!
