Elzybells Thursday

How about some Christmas cheer?! I am really getting into the holiday spirit. This time of year is my FAVORITE. So, I've started earlier with my Christmas cards. I don't want to wait until the last minute to create and send out mine this year. I decided I am only going to send close family and friends a handmade card. I know it sounds mean, but I really want to mail out elaborate, detailed, and different cards instead of mass produced simple ones. The only way I can do that is to limit my list. Rest assured, everyone will get something special too. So, the cards I am sharing with you today feature the new Elzybells Holiday images. I ADORE everything Elzybells. These are actually from the UK and are larger than the US version. I happen to like the larger size and the wider selection the Elzybells UK site offers. The first card was made with the super cute Penguin Tree image. I heart Penguins so this was a must for me. I colored everything in with Copics and added stickles on the ornaments. The card stock is from American Crafts. The second card features the cutest Christmas Caroling group ever :) I also colored everything in with my Copics and added Taylored Expressions glitter to the snow and trim. The satin ribbon is also from Taylored Expressions. The patterned paper and brad is from Imaginisce "Snowy Jo" collection. Well, that's all for today but tomorrow brings another Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge!
Until then,
