Late or Early?

Is this a very early start to next year's Christmas cards or a very a very late one?  Silly goose, it's early, I'm not sending out any more Christmas cards. 
This card was made for the My Favorite Things January Guest Designer contest "2011 It's a Banner Year!"  The banner is one of my favorite die-namics, especially since I've purchased three!  Crazy, nah, after you've cranked a few of these out you'll agree that having multiples is a pretty good idea (thank you Jody for the enabling).
One of my resolutions is to do the inside of my cards.  It's such a nice finishing touch and if you're a paper addict it'll help clean out some of your stash so you can make room for more new stuff.

Here's the deets"
stamps - My Favorite Things a la mode "Candy Cane Kisses"; My Favorite Things alphabet for banner
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black for image and inside sentiment; Stampin' Up real red for banner alphabet
paper - My Favorite Things perfect panel for image; Georgia Pacific white cs for sentiment and banner letters; Basic Grey "Mistletoe and Pear" pad for dp and colored cs
miscellaneous - Recollections turquoise pearls; Queen and Co. white and olive green pearls; red Glitzy Glitter; stickles;  MFT ribbon; MFT lace edge die-namics; MFT Layered Label die-namics; MFT banner die-namics; Stampin' Up corner punch; circle punch; copics
