A Christmas Elephant?! :)

Coffee of the Day - Almond Roca (now have to start rationing the Pumpkin Spice.......)

What a happy morning it is over here! Just because the clouds are a weeee bit grey doesn't mean it can't be a happy day! But I am one of the weirdies who happens to love the rain. When I was in school at Oxford, there was only 1 day the entire summer that the sun shined. Didn't bother me a bit. I loved the rain as it hit those old cobblestones. Even walking around in it every day didn't give me a moment's hesitiation. Maybe I really am an anglophile at heart........ :)

Anyhow...... on to today's wonderful new challenge over at Sewn Together! This week we are to use one of the Christmas images on our project. I saw this cute little elephant, Eris, and knew just exactly how she felt! how many times have I looked at that tangle of lights and ended up right in the middle of them all?! :) So on my card she went!

The lights are covered in crystal effects and the star is painted in beesax shimmerz. The entire image was watercolored. The scalloped doily border is actually the bottom of the card front. The lower ornament paper is on the inside of the card. I really like doing this lately with my cards. Just a little something different. The flower trim is from Prima, the ribbon is May Arts, and the papers are Basic Grey and Daisy D's.

Be sure to play along in the challenge with us this week! More free digis are up for grabs!!!!! ya gotta love the chance to win free digis! and always check out the Free Digi Fridays that Angela has. such cuties are sittin' over there every week just waiting for you to take them home! Be sure to wander around the store, too. She has added some cutie pies that have jumped from the shelves right into my shopping cart. Had to take them home, of course!!! :D Check out the other DT's projects! What a talented group of chicas!

Have a great day! Make the most of it! and look for God sending you His very own special 'hello'!
