Christmas at Little Claire !!


...well I'm sure you peeps are now trying to think about Christmas even if you don't want too, so perhaps our Christmas challenge at Little Claires will get you started !!

I've gone with a non traditoinal christmas card using "Let It Snow" and one of the sentiments from "Little Robin Redbreast"





























Elephants make me smile, they remind me of my Dad..no he wasn't a big man in size, he spent three years in India during the war and bought back some wooden carved elephants which I adored and started me on my own collection !!
 
This little elephant is so sweet,  I've coloured him in using Spectrum Noir pens, added some frantages, lots of stitching, pearls, ribbon and the paper is from my stash, then finished off with some sparkle using stickles and a snowflake brad.
 
Now why get started with your chistmas cards and enter the challenge,  this super prize is up for grabs !!

Hi Diane, I like that you didn't use traditional Christmas colours for this card. Saw a few elephants in India. In Rajasthan, they are practically road users :)
