Guest Designer For Crafting By Designs!

I was asked to be a guest designer for Crafting By Designs for this weeks challenge which is “Get Ready For Christmas”.  I was thrilled to be asked to participate and to share my card with you this week!  The sponsor for the challenge is Rick St. Dennis and I love his digital images.  There is something there for everyone!


This is Candy Making Nimbleknees Gherkin 3 Creepmas Elf.  As you can see I like the creepy….lol.  This was so much fun to color!  I added a bit of glitter for the bells and the stars.  I used a white gel pen for the outline on the outfit, the teeth and the dots on the snake.  The snowflake doily was made using the snowflake corner punch by Martha Stewart.  I used the Doo-hickey Snowflake die and a punched poinsettia flower by Recollections.  The sentiment is computer generated and mounted on card stock cut with the round and scalloped die by Spellbinders.

I hope you can play along with us this week!  We look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations!
