Just Elfing around


I had time to make a quick card using one of the images from this fortnights Southern Girls Challenge international sponsor Sassy Design Studio - this little cutie is Emily the Elf.  If you haven't entered the challenge yet, you have a week to go to enter the Inspired by a Song challenge - this one is inspired by Santa Baby

 Iused some MME Jolly Holly papers which I like, although it's more traditional than I would normally buy, maybe it's my age! :-D.

There's glitter all over her tunic, which was a *nightmare* to photograph (!) and she's dressed in traditional elf attire colours :-DAnd check me out, getting down with the blond hair!  I'm trying to be brave as my natural tendancy is to colour hair brunette!

When I was routing through my craft box the other day I found some shrink plastic which I haven't used in ages, so stamped the sentiment on it, and cut and got shrinking - so satisfying!!

MME Jolly Holly 6x6 pad;  Kraft and Green Bazzill;
Olive Sheer Striped Ribbon; Charm, Button and Pearls all from stash

Please may I enter these challenges
Thanks for looking!
