Elf on the Shelf Heads Home

     New monthly challenge at Crafts Galore Encore starts today and as of this month, all our challenge themes will be "Anything Goes."   Our sponsor for October is Kenny K Stamps and they generously supplied digis for us to use.  I used this darling Elf Boy image and this will be my grandson's Christmas card because he's simply mad about "Elf on a Shelf" and also about trains of any kind so this card is a combo made just to suit him.  :-D


     I colored the elf with my ProMarkers, then fussy cut him with scissors, and he's adhered with Pop Dots for some dimension.  The background mat and the train cars are cut with Cheery Lynn dies.  The sentiment is my own and is printed, then hand cut and matted.  Since this is a masculine card, I decided all the embellishment it needed was a single, red bow.

     Challenges:
ABC Christmas (2 train cars)
Addicted to Stamps
A Snowflakes Promise
Cheery Lynn
Crafty Sentiments
Fab 'n' Funky
Kraftin' Kimmie
Penny's Paper-Crafty
Simon Says Stamp
Through the Craft Room Door

     Come play with us this month.  We all know everybody loves an Anything Goes theme and that's what we have from now on!  See you at the challenge.  NanaConnie
