North Pole Elves....

Merry Christmas Everybody!!!!!!!!  Sorry I have been on a bit of a hiatus....but "Tis the Season" to be busy!!!  What little time I have had I just haven't been in the coloring and card making mood, KWIM. I almost forgot that I had these too little cuties colored and never posted them. Figured today was the last day that I could do that.

I just LOVE these little guys. Aren't they the cutest bunch of Elves you've eva' seen!!!  Of course they are from Mo Manning, she is an exceptional artist. Mo Manning and Elisabeth Bell are my favorite illustrators. There images just make you smile.

Copic markers
Primsa Color pencils
Martha Punches
Spellbinders Nesti for the circle
Ribbon (stash from Michaels)
Paper - ??

Hard to see in the photos but they are all stickled up. I always seem compelled to add stickles to things. Don't know what it is...just something I do.  You see the present in the one elves hand....fingers crossed I think it may be a Spellbinders Grand.  I am hoping Santa is good to me this year!!! I mean, I sent him direct links of where to purchase it

Now I am off to start cooking for tomorrows dinner. I am making Italian.  So going to start the sauce today, it has to cook all day. Then I will get the stuffed shells ready. I usually do lasagna, but I am changing it up this year. I have a bunch of desserts to make also. Two desserts will go to my moms house for Christmas Eve celebration and then the rest will be at my place for tomorrows dinner. So here is my line-up for dinner:

Stuffed shells
Pasta w/meatballs
Homemade bread
Ricotta Pie
Red Velvet Trifle
Pumpkin Pie
Spin/Artichoke Dip

The only thing missing is Italian Wedding Soup. I always make way to much stuff, so I took that off the rotation this year. However, I will probably make some during the week. It's going to cool off a bit here I will be wanting some warm soup!!

To end, I would like to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas. I hope Santa brings you everything you need or want. Most of all, enjoy your family and friends today. (and food, you can regret it after! thats my plan)

Merry Christmas,
