Merry Elf

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

The past couple of weeks have been very busy here which means not much
time to create cards.  But I did squeeze one out.

I've stamped the elf with Memento ink and colored with Copics. I don't have the
die so I had to fussy cut him out.

The MERRY was die cut from Cherry Cobbler ink and all added onto a 
Pinpoint Snowflake background.  I even found a stitched snowdrift in the
UFO box.

Love that cute elf and you colored him perfectly. He looks great standing by the big Merry. The Pinpoint Snowflake background is a perfect background for him.

Wonderfully "MERRY" - I really like the pinpoint snowflake background. Who needs the die when you can fussy cut like that! So cute and one can not go wrong when using traditional Christmas colors.

What a cute elf, holding a gift box, Bonnie! Great job of coloring him and fussy-cutting the image. The pinpoint snowflake background adds so much interest and gives a snowy feeling to the card.
