HMFMC #132 Getting Ready for Christmas

Hi All, Well we got 4 inches of snow last night and it is bitterly cold and windy this afternoon.  Saturday it is suppose to be in the high 60's.  This is just unbelievable.  Whatever the weather I am always in the mood for Christmas with the little meeces!
This week over at House Mouse and Friends we are to make a card that is Christmas related.
 It looks like these little guys are all pooped out from putting the lights on the tree. That's a lot of work so they deserve a short nap.  LOL  The image and sentiment are both from Stampabilities.    I colored the image with Copics and matted it with red and gold card stock.  I also used a scallop SB die.  The pine branches are made with a MS punch with three different shades of green.  I then spritzed some of them with Ritzy Ditzy spritz.  The bow is made with ribbon I've had for years and have no idea where I got it.  The pearls are by David Tutera Bridal Collection pearls that I picked up at JoAnn's.   I really need to take a photography class some day soon so I can get better pictures of these cards.  Hope you are all enjoying this week and will be able to do something fun over the weekend.  I hope to be back later with another challenge card.  Thank you so much for stopping by.
