Winter Elf

A couple of weeks ago I didn't think I was ever going to type this again but very generously Erin has offered to take over the running of the Crafting for all Seasons blog, thank you so much Erin.

So once again I can say - It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and the theme for the next fortnight is Christmas in July.

Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog - we have a new look and some wonderful new team members, please give them a warm welcome.

For my card I have used the sweet Winter Elf image from our sponsor Scrapper's Delights.


I have coloured her with my Spectrum Noir markers and added glitter to the fur on her hat and dress. My papers are from the Nitwit Collections Christmas Linen bundle along with the sentiment.


I have followed a sketch designed by Jules, she is creating a sketch library over on her blog - Always with a Heart and this is Sketch 5, make sure you pop over and check out her blog, you will not be disappointed.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion Challenge 271 - Anything Goes
Eureka Stamps Challenge 150 - Christmas in July
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 69 - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 254 - Christmas in July
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Always Anything Goes

Thank you for calling this morning, make sure you pop over to the Crafting for all Seasons challenge blog and join in with our Christmas in July Challenge.
