Not A Card

Good Morning all!
It's Saturday! Yay!!!
Were you all bothered with Ghosts & Ghouls last night?
I locked my door & put out the lights & watched a movie!
Actully, I was ready but no one came to the door!
The kids on our street are all grown up now!

Anyhoo, being the 1st of the month, we have a brand new challenge over at
There are two brilliant sponsors this month!

Our theme this month is
NOT A Card
Here's my Artbymiran project!
A little wine bottle topper with a pocket on the front.
I did intend to put something in there but hey ho, or ho ho ho lol!

The image I have used is Christmas Elf, I love this little guy!

I coloured him up with a mix of promarkers & flexmarkers,
fussy cut him  & added him to the little wine bottle topper.
(I found the file in the Sihouette store)
I added a few little self adhesive gem stars too!

Closer look at the  little cutie!

View from the side to let you see the pocket!
The sentiment was printed out, then die cut & threaded with
 two colors of ribbon which were knotted at each end.
I hope you like it!
I also hope you can play in the challenge & make something 
other than a card for a change!

I must apologise for not having a Delicious Doodles project yet but life got in the way!
It will be blogged soon so watch this space!

Thanks for stopping by!
