One of the stamp sets that I love having fun with is Holiday Lineup, especially the reindeer, remember this card?
But today I had fun with the elves instead. Let me tell you a little story, sure go get a coffee (oh try it with Belgium Chocolate Creamer, make me one while your at it…I'll wait).
The Christmas toy making season is over and the elves have been out celebrating, the economy has even hit Santa hard, and they were all crossing their fingers and pointy toe shoes that they would make it through another season without being laid off and they did. A few of them had to clean out the reindeer stalls but a paycheck is a paycheck right? The rosy cheeks and noses are caused by a few mugs of Guinness (I am thinking that seems more like what an elf would drink…with the big white foamy stuff on it). In fact Fred and Clarence the two elves on the left with the beards have even stopped dyeing their beards white. They have gone back to their old yellow cigar stained one. Now they'll have more pocket change to buy an extra stogey a week since they don't have to slap down that nickle for bleach at the Barber Shop. They even toasted an extra Yo!Ho!Ho! (Santa reserves the right to the three Ho's) at Thee Ol' Tar & Bavern.

I had these fuzzy little balls in my cabinet forever, and they were perfect for the balls on the hats. Tomorrow, these hats will get hung in the closet, and the baseball caps will be going on instead.
I hope you have enjoyed getting to know Santa's elves a little better.
Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
