It's CHRISTMAS......

....only Kiddin'!
I've made a card for the latest Peachy Keen Friday challenge #25
'Chalk it up' 
(I decided to make it a Christmas card' so I could enter it into a couple of other challenges too).

I did use chalk, honest. 
(It's the sponging on the snowy white linen card, inside the greeting diecut and my cute elf's cheeks).
 I made the card in the shape of a tag. (Bet you noticed that too eh)! lol
 Bazzil CS
Spellbinders label die (for the greeting)
Spellbinders circle die for the hole 
White gel pen 
Here's the inside
I utilised some Christmas paper I got at craft show years ago. (I have no idea who's make it is).
The sentiment is also from PKS-15 There are TONS of greetings in that set!
Here are the other challenges I'm entering this card into....

Stampin’ For The Weekend
DRS Designs

Well, hopefully, that's got me started on my Christmas cards now.
I'm ALWAYS at the last minute panicking to get them all done two days before the last post!
Every year I say, 'I'm going to start early next year' and never do. 
I'm hopeless! lol
Enjoy your weekend!
