Crafty Elves' Countdown To Christmas - April 2021 Edition


Welcome to this month's Crafty Elves' Countdown to Christmas!  We have made the commitment to create a Christmas Card a week for 2021 and every 25th of the month my crafty friends and I share the Christmas Cards we made that month!  Here's what I've got for you this month:

This month I mixed up an old MFT set and an old Hero Arts set and together they are pawfect!

Both sets are retired, but I don't know if I'll ever part with them!  The pups and sentiments are from MFT's Deck The Howls stamp set and the cacti are from the Hero Arts Merry Cactus set.

I am playing along with the Spring Into Christmas 2021 BYSHC Hop!  Check it out here!

I cut various frames... this one is from Impression Obsession.

And I used some papers from the Sunny Studio Stamps Holiday Cheer paper pad... so fun!  I think I'm down to just strips, but pretty sure I'm gonna use some of those next month.

This photo frame die is from Trinity... and I threw on a few snowflake die cuts I had laying around.  I'm pretty sure you can't have too many pup stamp sets, cactus stamp sets, and snowflake die cuts... 

I just love these pups... I've had them for so long and just now got them out and inked them up!  That happens far too often... But I've got more stamped and cut so you might be seeing them again soon!

Decided to make this one a mini slim using some new dies from A Jillian Vance Design... I'm really loving this size card..

And that's me!  Easy Breezy!  

Also, in case you are interested:

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit!  Now be sure to head on over to my fellow Crafty Elves' places and see what they've got for you today!  And we've got a special guest joining us this month!

And before you go, I have a winner from last month's post:

Verna!  Send me your snail mail at bzscrapper66 at gmail dot com so I can get you out your Happy Mail!

And we're doing it again!  So leave me some love and next month I'll pick someone to send some Happy Mail to!

Thanks again and Happy Hopping!
