Day 1 of the 12 days of Christmas

Hello! If you've just arrived from Nancy's Blog then you're hopping in the right direction, if not, please head back to Emma's BLOG to start at the beginning. For my card today I cut a sweet little elf from the Jolly Holidays cricut cartridge. His sweet face is from the Snowmany Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps.com. Oh and I first painted the light bulbs with Sizzling Red Glitter Paint and let it dry and then added some glossy accents. It looks really cool...like real glass bulbs! ;)
I used the awesome All Around Christmas stamp set and the Scallop and Stitched Circle dies for my sentiment. The cute little tree is also in the All Around Christmas set. OH I also wanted to mention that I like to use my EK success Scalloped Scallop edge punch when I used the Scallop and Stitched Circle dies...because the edges are the same! :) Ok...that's it for me, but first...
