would you like to swing on a bauble...

Good morning everyone did you all have a nice day yesterday, I'm shattered I was locked in my craft room for hours yesterday, trying to catch up with work but I hadn't slept well the night before and everything seemed to be like running through treacle, I bet you know just what I mean...I did manage to get a lot done but I need another lock in day to get the rest finished...I had a photo of a freaky little multi legged friend who visited me in my craft room yesterday and caused a lot of screaming and running around but I thought it might freak some of you out so I didn't post it, if there is popular demand I will show you it though lol...I had to colour this fantastic new image from Mo's Digital Pencil, this is one of the amazing Little Elf's and this beauty is called Little Elf Mim, this little elf made me smile and she is just such a sheer pleasure to colour, I used my usual distress inks to colour her and paper pieced part of her hat and the bauble...now how fabulous are these papers, I bought this Kaisercraft paper pad Velvet Ensemble from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and I have to say if you don't buy anything else get this pad, the papers are just the lushest colours and their velvet and foil and embossing and wow I love it can you tell lol...btw I just wanted to say a few months ago when I said the same thing I got quite a nasty email saying I shouldn't recommend something by saying I bought it when it was obviously a freebie...hand on heart everyone if I say I bought something I bought it I promise you and have the bills to prove lol...right back to the card, the circle I stamped the sentiment onto is from the same pad too...I finished with some lush grey satin ribbon and a bow...the fab sketch is from Pink Ink Sketch Challenge and I'm also entering this for the CES challenge and Sir Stampalot challenge too...right I'm off out to town or for a walk or well...er...anything I can think of as I need the fresh air to clear my fuzzy brain...whatever your up to today have a fantastic day everyone
