I just adore this little elf. Isn't he so cute? He is from Peachy Keen Stamps and is called Snickerdoodle Gift Elf. Be sure to check out their December Deals tab for their current specials. I colored him with Copics and then added gold Stickles to his hat's bell and diamond Stickles to the puffy areas on his jacket. The cardstock and patterned paper are both from DCWV. The buttons were in my stash.
I am entering this card in PaperPlay's Challenge #45. The theme this week is Movies & Books. Can ya guess what movie I drew inspiration from? One of my favorite (not just Holiday) movies - ELF! This card is also my entry for Stamp Something's challenge titled Winter Wonderland Somethings. Red and green, elves, gifts all remind me of this time of year. There are also snowflakes, albeit hard to see in this picture, in the patterned paper. Mr. Snickerdoodle is also bundled up pretty good too! Tomorrow, my former high school's football team is playing in the State Championships. Northside is the first team from our county to play for a state title since 1971. [That game in 1971 was actually the focus of the movie Remember the Titans and it was played here in Roanoke.] I was able to see just about every game so far this season. They are playing in Blacksburg at Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium! Pretty cool, huh! That is about 45 minutes from here so we'll be leaving at around 10 a.m. in order get a good seat and get ready for the noon kick-off. They are favored to win, but that is never a sure thing. They've worked so hard to get where they are and are on a 8 game winning streak. My fingers are crossed! Hope you all are staying warm and have a wonderful weekend. Ciao!
