Sparkling Elzy and Max

Today Sparkle had a layout for us to use for her Christmas Card Challenge! Love having the layout done for me! I had picked up a bunch of Elzybell stamps in June because of her running some specials. So, I figured I'd use one of those new stamps. Had a hard time picking which one to use. I ran into a problem with her hair line, colored too deep, so I gave the girl some bangs! I paper pieced her jacket. Reminds of something Gabi would totally wear. The more bling the better! I had the snowflake buttons on hand, and they matched the paper from DCWV perfectly!

I swear, you gotta love nesties. They just cut things so nice and perfectly for cards! Makes it so much easier, I kept wondering what I did before I had them, because I sure do use them a lot!

Other supplies:Martha punch, DCWV cardstock, ink from Michael's, copics.


And we picked up a new family member today. We've been waiting to take one home for a few weeks now. I would have taken two, but Paul thought that was a bit much. So, we brought home one today. Trey has named him Maxwell! So, Meet Maxwell! Gonna make for a cute scrapbook page! He's sleeping right now, exciting day for him, I'm sure. We adopted him, so I'm not sure what his breed is, and all that jazz. He's currently a calm little chap, but I'm sure once he's feeling more at home, I'm gonna see a different doggie! The cats are just now figuring out he's here, and thankfully, he's mellow right now! Give them all time to adjust before he's active.

Oh, poor Danni! What a burn!

Great card Anna! I am so excited when I see a Christmas card done in non-traditional colors! You really made this one up well. Pat yourself on the back! As for Maxwell, he is a real cutie patootie! We're gonna love getting to watch him grow up and hear all the doggie stories, but NOT have to sweep up the hair - lol!!!

Adorable card!

Very cute card! Love the bling jacket!!!

I didn't realize that Maxwell is a new member - how fun. We've always wanted a dog but we have a cat and well she isn't exactly the most loving thing on earth - we don't think she'd do to well with others (dogs & cats)!!! Congrats on the new puppy - it will bring you much joy I'm sure!
