From your Christmas Elf

In case you STILL hadn't heard, I have joined a group called Postpals, which send cards, letters, small gifts to sick children in the UK.
Not only am I joining in with the 'Reindeer scheme' this year, I am also joining in with the the 'Elf scheme'. An Elf (volunteer) is assigned to every child and the elf then gathers gifts up to the value of £15 and sends them in December. It is a little like the Christmas shoe box appeals we are all familiar with. Anyone of any age can be an elf, whether it’s little children picking gifts which they think someone their age would like, or adults who now have a good excuse to buy that pink fluffy present! 

Here is my card to accompany my gift:

The super cute image is from Dearie Dolls digital stamps (all freebies!) paired with Bo Bunny's 'Mistletoe' collection of papers. I used the current sketch on Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#29):

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking.
Happy crafting :)
