What horrible day it's been here weather wise - we've had lashing rain and howling gales and it's not very warm at all!! On the up side is the wind has almost stripped the trees bare so once we can get a chance to get outside and clear up all the dropped leaves the garden shouldn't need much tending to - thank goodness.

Here's my offering for today - love these mischevious elves from Mo Manning - there's a whole set of them - this one is called Little Elf Mim.

The pic is a bit wishy washy - when really the Echo Park backing papers are a rich deep red but you get the general idea!

Mim is coloured with promarkers and I used some fluffy stuff on the hat and hemline.
The bauble was run over with a glue pen and then glittered.
I finished with a PC generated sentiment and a dark red satin bow.
Another one for my Christmas pile!
