A Very Merry Elf for Friday Freebie!

Hello my friends!  The weekend is ALMOST here! Yay!
I for one am READY for this week to be over!  It's been a bit crazy around my house and it's been really hard to find time to stop and create let alone post or do some blurfing!
So I hope I can find some "peaceful" time to stamp this weekend!

I do have something fun to share with you today!
Bugaboo comes out with a digital stamp FREEBIE every Friday and today I'd like to share with you the new one that is being served up to you today...
I think this little guy is too cute! He looks like a happy little working elf getting ready for Christmas which is coming very soon!  This image is called AKV (which stands for "A Kid's View") elf-ornament.  And you can get him as a Friday Freebie!  Just CLICK HERE to get him for FREE!

I thought it would be fun to add some glitter to his ornament with some gold Stickles and I've used some of my gold glitter paper for a couple of stripes going across the middle.  I also punched out a couple of circles from the gold glitter paper to add to the ends of my sentiment.
I've also put some liquid applique on his hat trim.
I was so happy to pull out some older papers from my huge paper stash to use it up.  I thought it went well with his greenish outfit.  I also added a fun "loopy" border with my border punch at the top.  I didn't want this to look too fancy as this is such a playful image.  The "Very Merry" sentiment comes from an Avocado Arts clear stamp set.

Here are a few challenges that I'd like to enter this card for:
allsorts - Christmas Cheer
Send a Smile 4 Kidz - Happy Holidays 4 Kidz (Bugaboo is sponsoring!)
Created with Love (CWL#65) - Christmas Reds & Greens
Papertake Weekly - anything goes (with optional Christmas)
Fab 'N' Funky - Traditional Christmas Colors
CRAFT - Christmas

So I hope you will be sure to grab your Friday Freebie today and perhaps play in a challenge or two with it!  It's so fun and easy to color in...and there really is several possibilities with it!  If you'd like to see more inspiration with this image, then be sure to stop on over at the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the design team has come up with for you using this darling image!

Thanks so much for checking in with me today friends!
I will be back again tomorrow with some more inspiration to share with you, so I do hope you will stop by again to check out what's going on!!  Have a fabulous Friday!
