Crafty's Christmas time!

Well, December has arrived...3 days into the Advent calendar already! Christmas will very soon be upon us...and then gone in a flash! My son is getting married on the 29th so there'll be much excitement in our household...even more than usual!
Our new challenge, starting today at Crafty Calendar has the theme of 'Christmas Time' and is sponsored by SamiStamps, who very generously allowed the DT to choose an image each. I picked Candy Cane Elf, such a cute image and a delight to colour. I thought the sentiment matched the card perfectly...(rocking...Candy cane...get it?:))
There's some wonderful inspiration from my lovely teamies over on the Challenge Blog, we'd love it if you stop by and take a look..and add some inspiration of your own for us to enjoy!
Thank you for visiting, have a fabulous weekend
