Christmas advent event - day 23

Good morning! Are you done with all the preparations for the big day yet? I might bake something today, but otherwise I'm done. Oh, and tomorrow me and my boyfriend are going to my parents' for dinner and I am planning to make these cute Santas from strawberries (I don not own this picture, I got it online).

I came accross this image on Facebook earlier this month and I loved the idea so I was determined to find some strawberries somewhere and make these myself too. :) I hope mine will turn out as nicely as these!

Our Christmas advent event is slowly coming to the end, so if you are super duper late and have only found out about it now, hop over the CRPI blog to see how you can win some wonderful prizes from our sponsors. Our sponsor today is The paper shelter and they are giving the lucky winner a $20 gift certificate for their store.

The DT was lucky enough to play with their images and here's the card I made ...

Isn't this Santa's little helper just adorable? I love this image! :) I colored it with Faber Castell pencils and Promarkers. On the white parts of Santa's cap I used liquid appliqueAround the image I stamped with different snowflake stamps and I also added some glitters. The blue papers are from Provo Craft and the silver paper is just a left over piece that I've had in my stash. I made poinsettia with Marianne design dies. In the center of the poinsettia I added a crystal from my stash. Doily and small star confetti are from my stash as well. I used 2 different ribbons - they are both from Crafty ribbons. The string of silver crystals on the top of my card is cut from a crystal mesh that I got in a store for just 1 €. Good bargain, don't you think so? I hope you like my card. :)
