MTME Pretty Patterns sketch #35

I can't believe how many of you out there already have SNOW this year!  I'm glad I'm not one of them but we don't get much of that white stuff here in Southern Arizona.  So I have to come up with my own creative ways to get some of that snow for myself.  Today I decided to use the cute little boy elf from MTME's Holly Jolly digi stamp set.  Isn't he adorable?

I used some paper I had on hand this time for the background... I could just see the little elf in a forest of Christmas trees.  I had some shimmery blue paper on hand also and used Lifestyle Crafts' snowflake dies to cut out the snowflakes.  I also cut two out in white and layered them behind the blue snowflakes.  

I used some pearls for the centers of the snowflakes and also for buttons on the little elf.  You can see the buttons better in the photo shown above.  But what is that on his hat?  It looks like white fluffy stuff... could it be???

No, it's not snow but it is Polar White flower soft.  LOVE that fluffy stuff!  It's the next best thing to real snow... or maybe it's better since it's not freezing cold and it won't melt and make a muddy mess.  Yeah... I think I'll stick with my own kind of snow.  :)

I hope you will head on over to My Time Made Easy's blog and play along.  
Here's this week's sketch:

I moved the bottom circle to the top and turned them into snowflakes!  I also didn't think that the three dots went along with the snowflakes so I put one in the center of each snowflake.  See how you can mix it up a little?  Just make sure we can see the sketch in your card. - but most of all HAVE FUN!  

Thank you for visiting - I appreciate each and every visit and comment.

Talk about too too cute for words. I love him and the FS for the trim on his hat too!
