Mischievous Polly the Christmas Elf, Cheryl Alger

  When I saw the contest to win a spot as a guest designer for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps on Facebook I was so excited and knew I had to find the time to whip something up.  So here I am nearly at the last minute to share my card with you.
  This stamp is not a Kraftin Kimmie stamp but it is by a KKS aritst, called Mischievous Polly the Christmas Elf by Cheryl Grant Alger.  I have had it for a very long time, it was one of my very first digi stamps I purchased when I started getting into alcohol markers.  I didn't think you would still be able to purchase it but I went looking and found it for you all.  I wanted to be able to post a link for you.  I got it from Squigglefly and you can find it HERE.

Mischievous Polly the Christmas Elf by Cheryl Alger

I have used a lot of things from my massive christmas stash but there are a couple of new things I will link for you.  The winter hats is a die that was a new release at Whimsy Stamps this month, Winter Hat Border Die, you can find it HERE.  The little stocking charm on the top left is also from Whimsy, found HERE.  The wooden snowflakes I picked up at Michaels.  The large stocking was on a store-bought card I received from someone a few years ago.  I took it off and saved it, I knew it would be cute on something sometime.  My papers are from the Winter Wonderland collection from MME and a few from Whimsy too but they aren't available anymore.

I paper pieced the little winter hats and embossed the ends in gold and then also used Glossy Accents to make them look like bells.  The silver snowflakes are Jolee's from Michaels. Here is the inside of the card..

This little stocking here is from my stash and I can't remember where it came from.  The large snowflake is a punch and the sentiment was a free gift from Whimsy Stamps.  Here is a closer look at the stamp..

I colored her with my Graph'it markers.  I added some Glossy Accents to the bell on her hat.
