Our fabulous sponsor this week is

We got to play with some of their images and I have used a image I had on File yes sorry another Christmas card. Are you all done with your cards yet. I really must start writing them I know I keep saying then at least i will know how many I still have to make.
So here is my card featuring
I have made her into a little Christmas helper with her elf Green outfit.
I have gone with Stripes but the DP with the trees on has spots and also my tree has different coloured round Spot pearls. The Candy Cane has Stripes and so does her stockings so thinking I have comepleted the twist for this week.
The Tree I found in a box of diecuts that I placed diecuts that I had been sent from friends when we used to do card swops. I had forgotten about the box untill I did a sort of my off cut box/ boxes.
Ribbon I think is from Crafty Ribbons and all dp are from stash various old supplies.
Yes so far if you dont count buying images I have kept to no spend November. Wonder if I can continue it till Christmas. Then maybe a treat for the new year.
