  7. oh, he's so cute holding that giant candy cane! i'd love one of those. :) thank you so much for playing along with us at house of cards!

  8. What a sweet image Lori. That little elf with his candy cane is so adorable and colored so nicely. Hope you have a great week.

  9. Perfect colouring and love how you used The newsprint. Thanks for joining AAA

  10. I'm hoping to squeeze time into this busy week to get my candy cane card done. First I had to panic that I sold my candy cane stamp (indeed I did, used it to death) but that wasn't the one candy cane in my stash. I just had to get over the panic....

    Your elf card is quite the sweetie. He reminds me of the Elf on Rudolph who really wanted to be a dentist. Only I don't think a dentist wanna-be would offer you sweets... or maybe he would so he'd have repeat customers!

  11. Super adorable! I have to play in this this week! I missed last week. :( Love your colors and coloring, as usual! Hugs! xx
