Christmas Wishes

Good morning!  It's another chilly grey morning here.... winter is definitely here in Athens already!  I'm sure I remember our previous Novembers being much milder than this!

I have another cute Karber digital stamp to share with you today.  This one is called Elf Gift.  Head over to the Karber blog to check out Kelly's fabulous card for today... I just love the sentiment she used!

Here's my card (using the November sketch at I{heart}2stamp):



























The papers are all from Crate Paper (as is the button).  The seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is from LOTV.  I coloured the wee elf with copics (see details below).  Once again I had the hardest time colouring the reds!  I got too much of the dark red in the shadows on the pants and it kept smearing into the lighter areas, so now there is not much light differentiation.  Oh well...

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I{heart}2stamp: November Sketch
Cards for men #23: Christmas cards
Crafty Boots: Fantasy

Here is the usual close-up:

























And here are the copics I used:




















Have a lovely day!

PS, cold here in windy Lincolnshire too - daughter went to school with hat, scarf, gloves and tights today - put on her school coat (2 sizes too big!) and you could hardly see her!!

What patience you have Arabella and how generous of you . Never learnt how to crochet but these flowers look adorable. Love the paper pack as well.
