Santa's Little Helper

Good morning everyone, time for another linky part over at 'Make it Monday'.  This week we have the lovely Melissa from Meljen's designs sponsoring us.  I just love her images:)..  I have chosen this lovely little elf, isn't he adorable....


I have used papers from Bearly mine, aren't they gorgeous!!  just had enough ink in my printer to print them out and finish the card lol! I have used glitter on the border, his hat and parcel bow and those lovely snowflakes.. the card really sparkles!... I then put red gems down the border and in all of the corners...I really enjoyed making this card lol!!.. ended up with glitter every where lol!!

I wish each and everyone of you a Happy and Blessed Christmas, and as the saying goes, eat, drink and be merry lol!!! 'Happy Christmas everyone!!'
