It's time again for SOFTPENCIL TUESDAY!  I hope you are all having a great start to your week and recovering from Halloween festivities if you celebrated those this weekend.  I know my kids, husband and I were all pretty exhausted from all the running from house to house to get goodies!

A few announcements before I get to my project this week.  You'll want to pop on over to the SOFTPENCIL BLOG to check out the ADORABLE NEW CHRISTMAS images.  Also, check out DT member CAT's AMAZING Halloween goodies - if you have time, stop at CAT'S BLOG and leave her some love!!

As of now, the SOFTPENCIL SHOP is closed for maintenance, so the only place you can get the current SOFTPENCIL PRODUCTS is at SOFTPENCIL'S ETSY SHOP.  All current products will be available ONLY until Jan. 2.  Elizabeth is re-designing all her characters, so get your current SOFTPENCIL products while you still can.  For NOVEMBER, everything in the SOFTPENCIL ETSY SHOP is 20% off!!  Also,
Sale is going on, so you definitely want to get yourself over there to take advantage of all these GREAT SALES!!

One last thing before I get to my card.  Hope you will pop on over to SOFTPENCIL GROUP ON PCP for fun, chatting and getting to know the DT and other lovers of SOFTPENCIL!!

This week the DT is using "Little Dog and Christmas Tree" image.  I chose to follow the sketch from CARDS & THINGS.

For my card, I colored the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut with Nesties.   Then I added Basic Grey and Denami Designs buttons, Darice flower bling, flower soft for snow and parts of little dog.  I used Mica Chips on the bottom.  Bling flower is from Sassafras Lass.  Bows are from my stash.  Base CS is SU bravo burgandy, light green is from Papertrey Ink and embossed with new Basic Grey EF for Sizzix.  Bright green CS is CTMH and is embossed with different Basic Grey EF for Sizzix and distressed.  Hope you like it!!

My card is also for the following challenges:
LEXI'S CREATIONS - anything goes
MY TIME TO CRAFT - quick and cute
STAMPS R US - buttons and bows
WILD ORCHID - use Classic Christmas colors (red, green)
LITTLE PAPER SHOP - buttons and bows

A SPOONFULL OF SUGAR - relish to embellish
