Christmas Gremlins

    I know, I know, gremlins aren't really well known as Christmas critters.  Grinches, yes, and certainly elves but I happen to have personal experience with Christmas gremlins!  Ever have a package disappear after you wrapped it?  Or have favorite ornaments fall off the tree when the cat is locked outside?  Yep, it's the Christmas gremlins!

     Fortunately for you, someone managed to get a photo of a Christmas gremlin celebrating his latest raid on the Christmas tree.  Look at that evidence!  Wrapped presents and stolen candy canes.


   
     This image is from the Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter, and I colored it with my ProMarkers.  I used a die from Little B to cut it.  The deep burgundy CS in the background was embossed with my Linen folder.

     The three candy cane embellishments and the sentiment are from Recollections and I like the CAS design which focuses the attention on the image.  I debated for a while about which color candy canes to use, decided on both of the traditional Christmas colors although I admit to a preference for green most of the time.  It makes me think of the scents of Christmas - pine, bayberry, and balsam.  Mmmmm, good holiday smells.
