Hello!  I'm so excited about today's post!  It was so much fun to make.
 First, Karin Wiechert posted some really cute elves on Stampin' Connection and I couldn't wait to case them.  (Thanks for the terrific idea Karin!!!)  
Then, I saw this weeks challenge on Create with Connie & Mary and knew the two would go perfectly together.  Love this sketch!
Isn't this the cutest Christmas card?!!  I used several punches to make the elf.  His face is made with the ornament punch; his Ears - wing from the Bird Builder; his hat - bottom half of the Full Heart, Word Window, Boho Blossom; his eyes & nose - Owl Builder.  I sponged his face and ears with Pretty in Pink ink and used a blender pen on his cheeks.  The Whisper White fur on his hat was run through the Big Shot with the retired Snow Burst Embossing Folder.    Love it, love it.

Stamp Sets:  Wacky Wishes, Jolly Bingo Bits
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Soft Suede, Gumball Green, Blush Blossom (retired),
            WhisperWhite, Basic Black, Snow Festival DSP
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals
Punches:  1" Square, Full Heart, Word Window, Bird Builder, Owl Builder, Ornament, Boho
Extras:  Multipurpose Glue, Dimensionals, Sponge, Blender Pen

I hope you have fun making your own Elves!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
