Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello! Every year I want to start my Christmas cards early and enjoy the process and not rush at the end of the year! I want to play along with Christmas challenges all year long so I am participating in a Traditional Colors challenge at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge blog.
I chose red, green and gold for my colors-- and the cute elf's outfit comes across more as a blue/green instead of a true Christmas green. I just tried out a shotbox-- love it- but I think I need to practice more with the lighting! The elf stamp is from My Favorite Things- a wonderful set of stamps!  

I have been absent from blogland for a while. Life got super busy and my mother and father decided it was time to be together again. My mom passed in May after a sad struggle with Alzheimers.  My comfort is knowing they are together again.
I am off to the first tournament softball weekend of the season. The weather should be nice and in between games I plan to do some coloring of Christmas images. I hope to be posting more often.
Enjoy the weekend!
