Time for Christmas...?

I am loving the new Christmas images that are coming out. The cute new Sassy Cheryl images are no exception. I had to add a few to my stash and even though I am way behind on my housework and yard work, I just took time to color. I have been on a dead run lately with the restoration of our church, playing with the grand kids and various other obligations. I needed a day to kick back and relax. I made this Christmas card for a friend who always helps me decorate the church for Christmas. I know she will like this image as we lost all of our decorations in the arson fire at the church.. I hope your week is going well and you are taking time to enjoy the blessings in your life. 
A picture of my sweet grandsons as we prepared to head into the corn maze! This grammy walked seven miles with these two leading the way. It was so funny to see them try and figure out the way through the maze. We spent had a fun day, but we were all tired when we got home. It is so fun for me to have them living by us again and to be able to spend time each week with them. (Cobwebs can wait!) 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Christmas Time Is Here
Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year
Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share
Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there
