It's Party Time

Those fun-lovin' gals over at TPC want to party today!  It is our last post for 2011.  We are going to take a couple of weeks off to enjoy the holidays with our families, but we will be back on January 7, 2012.  Our sponsor this week is Karen's Doodles and this is one of her digis.  It was love at first sight when I saw the twinkle in this elephant's eye.  She is called "Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe" and you can get her here.  Wouldn't she be a funny card for my DGS who will be 18 in March?

I wanted to make this a real party card, so I used the side step card to allow room for the party hat and party balloons and give me room to print my precious elephant a little larger.  I colored her with Copics and added a little Diamond Stickles to her hem and neckline.  That fun shaw reminds me of these ruffly scarves that are the rage right now.  The DP's are from the DCWV Nana's Kids pad.  They have bright fun colors and lots of glitter already on them.   The card base is SU paper and the balloons and hat were cut on my Sizzix .  The Happy Birthday stamp is from Artful Legacy a local scrapbook store that is now on line.  The cupcake button is from my stash.  The oval shapes are from Nestabilities Labels 10.

So that is it for this one.  Quick and Simple to do since I worked with  beautiful elements and they can all stand on their own.  All I had to do was combine and glue!

So click here and see the other wonderful creations the rest of my teamies created over at Totally PaperCrafts.  Make a party card, tag etc. and post it. Karen's Doodles is offering a fabby gift to the lucky winner.

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it.  Happy Holiday to everyone who celebrate another holiday this time of year.  No matter what you call your holiday, I wish you peace, happiness with your family and friends.  Lot's of good food without any calories!  See you next year!

Love ya, Linda
