A Little Elf

Good Morning Peeps,

It's a lovely sunny morning here which is rather nice after the torrential rain we had yesterday, I had to go out to the Opticians yesterday and got absolutely soaked.  

Well we have a new challenge for you today over on My Time to Craft where for the next two weeks our challenge is:

One Layer Cards

I always seem to struggle with one layer but I decided to use this lovely stamp set from My Favourite Things, I must admit I really like this set and have made quite a few of my Christmas cards this year using various elements from it.

I used one of the Elves from the set, the Christmas Tree and the cute sentiment, I also stamped a few stars on it with a little star stamp I bought in France in the summer.  I coloured with Copics, added Glamour Dust and doodled around the edge with a black liner pen.

Have a good day and I hope the sun is shining for you too.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

Christmas at Sweet Stamping - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs - Get Ready for Christmas
Cute'n'Crafty Christmas - Anything Christmas
The Holly and the Ivy - Anything Christmas
Less is More - One Layer Card (Holiday)
