Merry Monday 216_ Elfen Christmas


I know it's wed, but I'm just getting my Merry Monday card done. This not only was a hard one for me, but I've been busy.   One of my daughters is coming to visit.   It's a big deal, I just don't get to see my girls or grands very often.  So, monday we shopped and we have been doing some deep cleaning.  I mean you know how bad the shower gets, right?  And how long it can take to really get it clean? That was a lot of our day yesterday.

So, this weeks challenge was to use an elf.  I don't have an elf. Or do I?   I had to really think about this.  But in the end, who is the biggest elf of all?  Santa of course.   He is called the Jolly old Elf.
One little tip if you didn't know.  You can bend the photopolymer stamps on the block so that you get the banner shape and can use the banner punch or dies. 

So that is what I did, with a little help from a couple other sets.  And a santa hat punch.
I hope you enjoy.

Wow, you are inspiring! I didn't have an Elf stamp either and used a recycled gift tag. But your idea is awesome. Thanks for sharing your tip as well.
