Jingle Bell Elf Pair

 I adore funny little cut files!This little Elf Pair file from the Silhouette Store caught my eye right off the bat!(see links below).  I love how it turned out! I used some new fun "schtuff" from Inspiration Emporium and had a great time with it! I used the new Tim Holtz Yuletide designer paper, Crazy Talk sentiment stamp and Birch Trees thinlit die. BUT my favorite part are these cute little Jingle Bell brads! Don't they add the perfect touch!?!

I was talking to someone at a crafty class I was taking last night and she asked me how tiny the Silhouette would cut. I had to tell her about these teeny tiny eyes and nose I had cut for these elves. Amazing-- but it is so easy to lose those little buggers. I always cut about 10 extra  little pieces because they seem to disappear all on their own!

Doesn't the birch tree die look great? It makes for a wonderful backdrop.

I am going to enter this in the following lovely challenges:

Absolutely adorable! Love those darling little elves and the pretty tree die cuts. Those little bell brads are great too. Been too busy today to work on any cards. Ran errands in Ocala this morning and I'm off to the local trim a tree festival and auction in a few minutes. First time I've gone to the tree festival since we moved to Florida. Should be interesting.
