Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Countdown to Christmas!! I'm not ready!!!

I am really getting into the Christmas Spirit with Thanksgiving almost here and Christmas quickly approaching--- actually too quickly.  Sassy Cheryl's Challenge this week, hosted by the ubber talented Jeni, is Countdown to Christmas.  Here is my card:

The first thing I do to get ready for the Christmas Holiday is decorate the tree so I thought this little group of hard working elves ,called Christmas Tree Elves, would be perfect.  This cute little trio were colored with copic markers and sponged with SU Soft Sky ink.  The ornaments were colored with the Atyou Spica penss as well but it doesn't show in the photo, unless you click it to enlarge the view.  The dp is from  the Cosmo Cricket Eskimo Kisses collection from last year. 
The sentiment tag is a new Spellbinder tag die set I got last week.  I strung the wide velvet ribbon through and cut the ends, which I usually mess up on since I do it free hand :).  My favorite part of the card, besides the darling image are the little lights at the bottom of the card.  They are so cute so you will probably see them often this Christmas Season.
Be sure to stop by Sassy Cheryl's blog  and check out all the really cool stuff she is up to right now.  Sassy Friends on Monday, Color Me on Tuesday and What are you working On on Thursdays.  It is so much fun. While you are at it be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and check out what the DT has created for this week. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

My favorite part of the card, is the WHOLE thing! :) Gorgeous as always!
Yes, I know, Christmas is quickly approaching. I guess I'd better drag out the tree and put it up next week. I always do it before Thanksgiving. We'll see if that happens. . .:o
