Helpful Elves

I just picked up some new images from Sassy Cheryl's so I thought I better put at least one to good use and make something for their current challenge. Since I am on a mission to get my Christmas cards all made before the end of November, that is what I made and of course it is very flat so it can be mailed without requiring me to float a loan for postage. I have said this before and I will say it again, I really do prefer a bit more embellishment so these cards seem almost naked.

I don't usually wish Christmas was tomorrow but I have asked my husband to make me a photo booth for Christmas and given the horrible photo I got for this card, then Christmas can't happen too soon. Sorry about the quality.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Use a Digi
Pile It On - Traditional Christmas
