Quirky treasures, a reminder to enter the challenge

This is my make for the Quirky Crafts challenge reminder, the challenge ends on Saturday midday and is sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.
I thought this image would be perfect for my treasure, which this time is the Woodware mini light bulbs I found hiding in my biggest Christmas stash box! As far as I know you can't buy these now, I have searched for them without success. I have a little wooden box with 4 compartments holding these, and they are so cute I didn't want to use them up so never opened the pack.
They look good hanging on the Christmas Stocking Laundry line from The Cutting Cafe, don't they!
I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added some stickles for snow, and a bit of sparkle with my Spica pens.
The card the image is mounted on is also quite special, I won it in a Christmas lucky dip from Card Making and Papercrafts magazine and I only have one sheet, I won a second similar sheet but this is the only one that says Love at Christmas.
I used some Crafty Ribbon's ribbon either side of the card, and another card ready for Christmas. I have family and friends cards to make still, and some to post, and it is the last day tomorrow for posting in time for Christmas!
