It's Day 9...

Happy Saturday!
You hopefully noticed the blinkie on my side bar 
in reference to the 
14 Days of YNS Holiday Fun. 
If you have missed any of the days
you will be giving yourself 
a big treat by going back to day one!
Karen has done a fantastic job with
these new releases. She asked me to help out this month
because her release is huge!
I am lucky enough to share
Isn't she great?
I don't follow Hockey with exception to a single
match every few years. My kids however
love these Bey Blades I used as props
so I pulled out a tiny metal lunch box
distressed the heck out of it
and altered it. 
What do you think of the
brown Corduroy?
I recycled it from a pair of my 
kids hole-in-the-knee pants.
I Mod Podged the back of the fabric
to stiffen it up and used my 
rectangular spellbinders as the die.
Now they can keep all there metal tips
in one place with style.
By the way

(click for sharper image)
I don't know if you can tell but I added
 liquid applique and glitter
to the girl elf's hat and dress
 for some dimension and sparkle.
The papers are from the kit that came
with the stamps and the fiber
is from a very old stash from Close To My Heart.
The cute red Jingle Bells circle tag is maybe
Bo-Bunny but don'y quote me on it!
Well that's it!
