Get Your Merry On

So do any of you do the Elf on a Shelf thing?  I was so planning on getting one and doing it this year and still haven't gotten around to it.  Not sure I will attempt it this year or not.  I guess there is still time right?!  I am certain that our Elf would be of the mischievous type...just cuz that is so much more fun!!

This adorable Elf totally reminds me of the Elf on a Shelf.  The Elf and sentiment are from Hambo Stamps.  My layout for the card comes from the current Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #218.  I went for the traditional Christmas colors...funny my head I was following the SCS Color Challenge #352, but after I finished my card I remembered it was suppose to be Vanilla not White!  Oh well!!  It has been awhile since I have made a card, so I am feeling a bit rusty!

I have a confession too...I have decided not to make my Christmas Cards this year!  I know a shocker and it still bothers me in all honesty.  I designed a photo layout for cards, so I did do something creative!  But alas all of the traveling in November really messed me up for December and time just keeps escaping me!  Oh was bound to happen one of these years right?

I will be fitting a little bit of creating time before Christmas so there is still some to come.  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

This is super cute! We do a version of "elf" all year with a dinosaur and a cow. Don't ask how that got started with such odd things! HA!

Love the bright red and green!
