Elliot's Gifts

Evening everyone
I hope you are all having a lovely week-I am having a very nice short week as I finally got my 'snow day' on Monday. I got so much done and would just love to be able to do a four day week every week-I even fitted in some craft time in the afternoon, just love crafting in the house!!
I am trying to get a bit ahead of myself with birthdays and other occasions this year as far too often I am rushing to make a card and find that takes the enjoyment out of it when there is pressure to get something made quickly-so far so good but it is only January-I'll let you know how well I kept to it around the middle of the year!!!!
My card today is made with such a cute Digi Garden image-Elliot's Gifts which you can find here, I just love this little fella and there are some other designs featuring Elliot over at Digi Garden for you to choose from. There is also a customer challenge running which is currently a photo inspiration-you can find it here. You need to use a Digi Garden image to qualify but if you take a quick peek on facebook and like their page Jacqui very kindly has a Freebie on a Friday so there's no excuse not to enter!
I coloured Elliot with my Promarkers-the brown and flowery papers are from Wild Rose Studios and the heart paper was from my stash. I added a little chipboard heart which came free with a magazine and added some card candy to finish, hope you like him!

I would like to enter him into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers challenge 152 -  Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter challenge 96 -  Anything Goes
Inky Impressions challenge 94 -  Celebrate
Paper Playtime challenge2 - Use some brown
My Mums Craft Shop challenge 1 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.
Until next time
Andree xx
