SFTW Christmas challenge

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.

I would like to enter this into Craft your passion anything goes with glitter, Crazy 4 challenges xmas movies (Elf), Simply create too all about xmas, Come and get it anything xmas and Crafty ribbons traditional xmas colours.
Please check out the superb creations from the rest of the team and don't forget to join in!
A quick update and some piccies of my darlings in their acting modes!

Thanks so much for coming by my blog again today just 1 wk left of my Candy!
Big hugs

Hi Rebekah, so sorry I've not been over to your blog for ages - and look at all the gorgeous creations I've missed! Things have been a bit hectic at home, and looks like they have been for you too!!

Your children are just adorable and love their names - so pretty and unusal. Caleb looks like he is really enjoying himself - hope he is back to full health now.

Emily is in her play next week and, judging by the fact that we've already had her tell us that we don't need to go, I'm not sure that she is going to be so happy!!!
