My Favorite Things Santa's Elves Christmas card

Happy New Year!

I hope you've all had a wonderful New Year celebration and there are no sore heads this morning after the night before!

We are at the start of ABC Christmas Challenges 11th Year and we have got some fabulous fun Christmas theme prompts coming to you over the next 12 months. Why not join us in keeping the Christmas spirit going and start as you mean to go on by getting your 2020 Christmas cards started.

Our themes this time are

A for Anything Christmas  goes


B for Bingo

Our lovely Helen is the hostess this month 
and she has a gorgeous stamp set prize for 2 winners.

I decided to go for the bingo and used the left-hand column - patterned paper - lots of layers - die-cut,  and came up with this card which will be great for the children.

I used the MFT Diagonal Sentiment Strip Cover-Up die over some red spotty paper for the background, and a sentiment from Happy Little Stampers.

The little elf is from the MFT Santa's Elves stamp set and I coloured it with Copics and a little white gel pen. That elf stamp set is one of my absolute favourites and I must make more use of it this year.

I hope you will visit my Design Teamies for some inspiration over on the blog and you can link up your entry over there.

I'd like to wish you all a very happy, healthy and crafty new year!
