So get out your mixing bowls add all the ingredients, abit of imagination and a memory or two. I cant wait to see what you end up with :o)
Dont forget to add in your post a little bit about your celebration.

For my Scrapbook LO i decided on a winter/christmas theme. I do love Christmas. Well that should read i absolutely love the whole build up to Christmas.....
Ever since my eldest was little ( hes 20 now) as soon as we had bonfire night i would remind him that Kelvin the elf was listening for him being good. He was reporting all his good and bad things back to Santa. Well it worked a treat ;o) So i carried it on with my other 2 sons. In 2008 i found a gorgeous elf online ( he came from USA) Kelvin came to visit and he was sooo mischievous. One night he took all the tinsel off our tree.The next morning i caught him trying to hide in a big pile of the tinsel. He climbed the tree. Stayed up all night playing on the xbox360. Ate the candy canes off the tree to name but a few !!
On the LO i made a ticket that slots in behind the picture which has journelling about Kelvins antics. I added 3 snowflakes/ flowers to the top of the ticket so that it was more visable

I wanted the really cute Sammie Snowman digi image by Lexi Creations ( available here ) To look as if it was part of the backing paper,thats why i chose to use a white background for my LO. Heres a close up of the image.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then added stickles and glossy accents. I loved this image so much. It was really easy to colour. So i just had to make a card using the same receipe.

Just for a little celebration hows this ?

Great card! I love the snowman image. We have two elves that come to our house and boy do they make a mess. Last year they brought two reindeer & a dragon (all Webkins) and tried to train the dragon. We found the dragon tied up with the fire extinguisher beside it and a note that the dragon did not make a good reindeer so mom should get him. he he! Thanks for playing the Critter Sketch Challenge and sharing Kelvin's antics with us.
