Christmas Greetings Blog Hop, Day #2

If you are here for the Christmas Cookies and Cards Blog Hop, please click HERE.

Welcome to the Christmas Greetings Blog Hop (12/2-12/4), featuring Christmas cards made by some very talented ladies. Stop back to each of the HopStops daily this weekend to see a new card on each day. We'll each have a Christmas gift to brighten the day of a winner chosen at random from those who leave comments and follow.

Here is my card for Day #2, Saturday December 3:

I fell SO in love with these little elf fairies that are from Penny Black Stamps. I paper pieced her dress, and used Copic Markers to color her.  I trimmed out her hat's fur using Liquid Pearls.  The paper, banner and "joy" letters are from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker. 

I have the ornament swinging from the window ledge, cut using a Spellbinders "Our Daily Bread" window die.  I filled the panes with acetate. For the inside of the card, I printed a ClickArt Online image of a sky, ornaments and pine tree, where there's space enough to write a message. 

For my blog candy, I have a super sweet pair of Stainless Steel soft-handled scissors by Recollections. These have adorable pink/white padded finger holes and terrific tiny-points for intricate fussy cutting. 

To win, simply leave a comment on this post and be a CardMonkey follower.  In your comment, please leave a way for me to contact you, when you win.  Winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, 12/4 and posted on Monday, 12/5.  Come back on Day #3 tomorrow and post a comment then too, for an additional chance to win!!  Thank you and good luck!
