Merriest Wishes!

Hello all my crafty friends and family! Well I finally made it down to my craft room and did something. I can't believe it has been this long, but with Christmas just around the corner I have been busy shopping and wrapping all the gifts that will be under the tree once again this year. On the bright side of it I only have two gifts left to buy and then I can start on the baking and decorating. 

I found a fun challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room so I decided this would be a good time to start on the Christmas cards.
This weeks challenge is to use a Die Cut so I dug out my Jolly Holiday Cricut cartridge cutting the Elf out at 3.5 inches and made this adorable card.
I used my gypsy to cut the face so I could hide the cut marks so I could use my Peachy Keen stamps for the face( which I smudged) darn it anyway!
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot stamp set "Jingle All The Way"
Did you see all the new stamp sets and Dies that were just released over at My Craft Spot? They are all so cool and fun that I could not help but go shopping and then to top it off  I was lucky enough to win this set! Oh Yea! Doing the happy dance!
Here's a shot of the inside of the card.
and finally a picture of the card with matching envelope.
Woo Hoo!
One down and a whole bunch more to go. LOL!

Your elf card is over the top cute and then add in the envelope to really make it perfect! Nice job.
You've used diecuts/Cricut cuts very well and that makes your card a great addition to our challenge. Thanks so much for sharing this week at HIMCR. We hope to see you back very soon!
