GINGHAM AND AN ELF FOR MIM



Hello Everyone......

One week to go and it will be Christmas Eve...and I've only had to replace the choccies in my big red Christmas bowl twice this year, I'm doing very well...



I'm worse than the G/kids...lol..

This week at MAKE IT MONDAY  we have the lovely MELJENS DESIGNS as our sponsor...and were given some wickedly cute images to play with...


For my card I used this cute little elf called Santas little helper  


Coloured with pencils and copics, gingham bow and candies on the snowflakes.



Liquid pearls on his present and red flowers from WOC...



The side view...papers were MME 'Bountiful'

Another hard choice is picking my favourite from last week...but boiled it down to this card from JODI #130  


So cute...a great male card..and fabulous colouring..Thanks for sharing Jodi..

This week we are running for two weeks over the Christmas period, so there will be plenty of time to play...

I wish you all a very Merry Chrismas Make it Monday Fans...and will see you again on the 31st Dec.....Thanks for sharing with us all year long...

Luv CHRISSYxx

That's THE prettiest centerpiece I think I've ever seen. Are those pine bits mixed in there too? LOL.
Loved admiring your elf all the way until it ran on MIM and your POTW by Jodi is exceptionally wonderful. :)

Hi Chrissy
Thank you soooo much for your lovely comment and your kind invitation for MIM. I have to say I am a MIM virgin (LOL) but love feasting me eyes on other lovely crafters work so I am going to take part.
Love your Santa's little helper card! It brought a smile to my face, with all the cheerful colours and beautiful elements you used to create this beauty.
