Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas - June 2021 Edition

Well!  Meeeerry Christmas!  It's that time of month again and the Crafty Elves are sharing the Christmas Cards we made this month!  Michael, Debra and I along with our guestie (again) Crystal have lots of fun for you (and a challenge)!  We sure hope you enjoy it!

Here's how I was inspired:

I fell in love with this sweet deer from the Silent Night stamp and die sets!  Not to mention all of the other lovely images.  (Psst... it's retiring and on sale in the HB shop here!)  I took a post vaccination mini trip to northern AZ a few weeks ago with my mom and used the weekend to color all of my images for today (except for my last card) including these.  And check out the paper I used today!!  This is a beautiful plaid paper pad from Memory Box and I picked it up at Ellen Hutson here!

I used a lot of the same colors for most of my cards, but a few extra for this one.

I also used this Honey Bee set, Snow Buddies (also on sale and retiring)!  

And check out the Vintage Frame from A Jillian Vance Design.. one of my faves!

And for this one, another one of my fave frames from Rubbernecker Stamps!

I had stamped, cut and colored so many images I had some extras so made a snowman free card using this Photo Frame from AJVD.  And I used snowflakes from various companies and all of the sentiments for the above cards are from a fabulous set from Miss Ink, Seasons Greetings.

I thought I was done with all of my cards for the month and then remembered I had wanted to play along with the current Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers Sketch Challenge #11!

I colored up some of the pups from an old MFT set and they were perfect!

So cute, right??

And these are the colors I used for the last 5 cards.

That's me for today!  Now be sure to head on over to my fellow crafty elves places to see what they've created for you for today!

And before you leave, I have a winner of some Happy Mail:

Migdalia!  Please email me your snail mail at bzscrapper66 at gmail dot com! 

 Thanks so much to everyone who stopped last month and every other month and thank you for your kind words!  And we're playing again... leave me some love and I may send you some Happy Mail!

Thank you SO much for stopping and hope you'll come again!

Oh my goodness, these are all so beautiful and adorable. Loving the purple color combos and that sweet little deer. I'm also really impressed that you colored your images while on a trip because I can never get organized enough to have my materials at hand.
