  1. That is an interesting cut - I am not sure I have this cartridge I need to check - lovely blue and white - TFS

  2. I should ask Daisy to come over and help me wrap - she did a great job helping you and now you're almost done! She likes doing the taping! As for the redraw, Diana answered my comment and said no, too busy this time of year, but I did tell her I hope someone else wins next time. Maybe Daisy's number will come up! Personally the most fun of this linky has been visiting the other elves and seeing their antics - Eli and I have had a blast!

  3. Lovely CAS card Melissa.
    Hope that Daisy only uses the tape to wrap presents - but then she is a pretty well behaved elf.

  4. Oh, I just love that polar bear card...what a sweet design! And Daisy could be quite a help to you if she learns how to use the tape dispenser!!

  5. I love the polar bear, it's one of my favorites! Thank you for joining us at FCCB.

  10. Very cute card design! Thanks so much for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! Happy Holidays!

  11. I really like the way this card turned out! The pale blue with the white is lovely and the embossing that peeks through from the bottom layer was a genius idea. Thank you so much for supporting our Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges and I can't wait to see what you come up with in 2016!
