Hello all my blogging friends! We had a busy day yesterday with xmas plays in abundance! My son was in his school production during the afternoon and then both my girls were in a xmas play with a local youth theatre they belong to so we are well into festive mode here!
Continuing the festive theme I have yet another xmas card to show and this time it's for the SFTW
Christmas challenge which is this time sponsored by Simon says stamp
Well, I just love these little elves by the oh so fabulous Mo Manning
(I may have another of these making an appearance next wk!) I have used yummy papers from my minds eye holly Jolly with a selection of flowers from the fab wild orchids
. My tabs at the side have again been cut with nesties and I have used gold brads on them (yes brads! Almost forgot how to use these lol!) My cheesecloth is from stash (you can grab it from e bay in the kitchenalia dept) and my sentiment is Waltzingmouse
. If you have never had any Waltzingmouse
sentiments before check them out they stamp absolutely beautifully and I swear by them!!
My fabulous little image is Elf Finn and I have coloured him with prismas. I used 2 colours of stickles on the bauble for a real sparkly effect. He also has stickles on his white trimmings and the postage stamps around the edge are LOTV
. I have inked with forest moss and machine stitched the edges.
