Crackered Elf

It’s been a bummer of a day but this image gives me a little bit of a smile and thought I’d share it with ya’ll.  I know, I know, it’s Christmas – but hay, it’s never too early to start on those holiday cards!!  And this one is almost perfect for mailing since everything (well, except the flower button) is actually flat and will therefore go through the mail easily.  Has anyone noticed the mail has it’s definite “mood swings?”  I think December and January are the worst but things quickly get back to normal, as with everything else. Anyway, let’s get to the happy project!!

The image is Cheeky Elves Collection from Make it Crafty and these cheeky elves are super fun to color.  This is the third one I’ve posted out of three and I used the same color scheme on each of them – going for the muted cheery colors. 

Rather than use papers from my holiday collection, I’ve gone for more of the muted manly color.  Then there is a splash of color through the reds/yellows that brings it to life.  Hopefully it says merry and cheer and will bring a smile to the recipient.  😀  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a great week!
