Elfish Christmas Greetings

Pin It



Hello Friends and a Happy Weekend! How are you all doing? I planned on a relaxing Saturday today but it was not relaxing at all...lol. Was running unexpected errands and ended up cleaning the whole house...very relaxing *aaahhhhhh* It just didn't work out like planned (some how it never does :-) ) and so far I had no time yet to sit down and craft...well maybe later this afternoon...there is still some hope ;-)

I got a few emails and was asked if I could do a tutorial on the shadow box card. I will do one soon and post it on the Belles 'n Whistles blog. I'll let you know here as well. I also plan on doing a tutorial for a shaker card!
BTW have you seen Rosette's stunning creation on the BnW blog today? So make sure you don't miss her awesome project!

For my Christmas card I used little Elf Vivi from The Greeting Farm. Isn't she just adorable? I love the look on her face! I colored her with Copics and added some shine with twinkling H2O's and Stickles. I got inspired by a card I saw in a magazine (unfortunately I can't remember which one it was) to do the snow flake wreath. (well part of a wreath actually). Added some half-pearls
ribbon and a large star button for decorations.














Thanks so much for taking the time and visiting my blog today!

Hugs,
