Have 'yourelf' a very merry Christmas...

That's the stamped sentiment that I wish I had for this card!  Never mind.

I made this card for the sketch challenge at the Card Positioning Systems website.  This was their sketch:


Now that I've started making Christmas cards I'm finding it quite addictive.  I love them!  I've nearly finished all my Christmas shopping and there are Christmas things everywhere in the shops and I am really trying hard not to pull out the Christmas decorations too early (although I confess I have already put two Christmas photo cubes and two tiny ornaments on our buffet...but you would hardly notice!)  I used to always follow the 'Not before December 1st' rule but it's just so exciting when you have kids that it's hard to resist!

The elf was cut at 3.5 inches from the Paper Doll Dress ups cartridge. 
The patterned papers are from My Minds Eye. 
The sentiment stamp, holly stamp and reindeer rubons are all from Kaisercraft.
The stamped elf face is a Peachy Keen stamp (everyday faces assortment).  I love the wink face - makes the elf look so cheeky!

Thanks for looking!


  1. What a sweet card!! Love the blue on the elf :) You know I have had PK face stamps for well over a year and have yet to use them...but they look so cute when I see others use them! (BTW...I agree, it is hard not decorating for Christmas but I try to respect Rememberance Day here in Canada which is tomorrow...so then I will probably start!).
