Wee and a Christmas Tree

Now, how can you not love these little Whiff of Joy characters???  I read somewhere they are Christmas gnomes... not elves.  Don't know if that's right or not, but I'm going with it.  As I said in my last post (another gnome), I bought all six of this 'family'.  I'm currently coloring up the third, so you'll end up seeing them all!  I sure hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!

As I write this up, my Kansas University Jayhawks are doing great on ESPN.  That just makes me happy!!!  : )  Heeheehee... I just had to get a KU plug in here!  : )


I kept this card pretty simple as far as embellies go.  I wanted the dp and image to stand out this time.  I did use itty-bitty pearls as the tree's ornaments, used glitter at the bottom of each tree layer, on and around the star topper and for her collar, used the wonderful button bow and a little pompom on Wee's little conehead cap.  I was going to add a sentiment, maybe some other buttons or gems, but decided to leave it just like this.

The challenges:
1.  Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I used their sketch last week... and I won!!!  That makes me happy too!!!.  They have another great sketch this week so I thought "what the heck... give it another shot!".  Hope you can join in too.  My image is a tad long for this sketch, but I tried to go with it the best I could.

2.  Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Christmas stars.  I was going to add a star charm, but as I said above, wanted to keep embellies to a minimum.

3. Our Creative Corner - Holiday theme, Christmas or Hannukah.  I've missed doing OCC for several weeks.  Nice to be back again.  I love their challenge blog!!

Thanks for coming to see me.  Have a great Saturday.
