{YNS} You Warm My Heart

Hey there! Just popping in to show you a sweet card that I made for a friend this's going to be her Christmas card;)
I used the famous Ellie from Your Next Stamp! This kid gets around and she loves alot of things- which I think is great:) Shows she has a zest for living life;) She reminds of a non-annoying version of little Emily Yeung from Treehouse! lol! You Canadian moms are probably all too familiar with Treehouse Network and all their ear-grating shows...Remember Daniel Cook? Thank the Lord he finally grew up.  I don't know if I could stand putting another child through that;) There were more times than not, that I wanted to give him a swift kick in the arse;) Oh he was a sassy one! Probably made his parents rich though;)  Hahaha!!
Back on topic: The card!
I used Ellie Loves Hot Cocoa (who doesn't??)

I coloured her up with Copics (I wanted to give some really rosy cheeks from sitting out in the cold;) and I added some white dimples for fun:)
I cut a circle from an lacey circle nestie, left the cream CS in the die, and used my airbrush to 'colour' in the circle (E 42,43). I added some chocolate stitching and espresso ribbon (totally not the plan, but I royally screwed up and had a BAD sewing machine foul up under that strip of ribbon you see- it was supposed to go where the bow is), but, you do what you gotta do! So I put the ribbon on the top and left to bow on the bottom- hopefully it doesn't look to unbalanced;) I hotglued a MFT button tied with a SU linen thread double bow on the bow. Behind the bow, I hung a mini heart cookie cutter charm with linen thread.  The paper is my new FAVE! I just got it and it's by Pebbles I far, I have only seen it in 12x12 sheets, but it's a small enough print that it's great for cards too! I think you'll be seeing alot more of it in the next few weeks!

Here is a close-up of Miss Ellie, sipping on her cocoa!

And the inside, that I finished but left loads of room for a personal message..This set comes with a sentiment, I just chose to leave it off this time.
