Merry Christmas and some Elzy fun

Merry Christmas everyone!

May your homes be filled with the warmth of family and lots of Christmas cheer.

***If I was a bit more computer savvy, I would have inserted some fantastic holiday graphic... so imagine if you will, a lovely picture of holly leaves with sparkly red berries here***

Now for some Elzy fun. It's time for another challenge! This is challenge #10 and it is a sketch -my favorite kind! My fellow Elzybelle, Frances (StampOwl) designed this one -thanks Frances, I loved it!! You can check out all the Design Team creations by checking out the Elzybells blog here.

I have 2 cards to share, the first is for the sketch challenge. This card is going to one of my son's friends who is turning 5 early January. The image is Birthday Girl and I colored her with copic markers. To make the polka dot dress, I took a small dot stamp (from Technique Tuesday) and inked it in Ridinghood Red ink. I then took a Sakura stardust red pen and outlined the dress, present and colored her shoes. The DP is Basic Grey Urban Prairie and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's Small Sentiments set. I also used a piece of my beloved Hodgepodge Hardware from the Stylized Silver tin for the taffeta ribbon.

This next card uses the adorable image called In the Dog House. I colored it with copic markers and added stickles to the flowers and heart. The DP is the retired SU East Coast Prep and the ribbon is Wasabi double stitched.

You can click on the pictures to get a larger picture. I think I finally figured out how to do that - upload it in the 'medium size' selection!
