A Little Elf told me...

...that TODAY is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!  YAY!

I'm feeling festive as I am the proud owner of this limited edition (was released last year and then again in SUPER limited quantities on Black Friday :) ELF ANYA from The Greeting Farm!


Isn't she a riot?  LOVE the Jolly by Golly DP too, of course (hmmm, have you guys heard that before? haha) so it seemed like a match made in heaven!  All in all I just think it made for a super fun Christmas card and the hardest part will be deciding WHO to send it to!

Here is Mercy's awesome sketch this week, MTSC51:


I flipped the sketch but other than that stayed pretty true to it and it's definitely a layout I'll be using again!  

Be sure to hang out a while here in blogland to see what the other MUSES have done this week, too!
Last but not least, don't forget to link up w/ Mr. Linky on Mercy's Blog if you are playing so we can all see your marvelously jolly creations!

For now, I leave you with this fun and whimsical quote I just came across today:

" A world in which elves exist and magic works offers greater opportunities to digress and explore..." ~Terry Brooks
