Holy Night

Welcome, Everyone!  This is my mid-month inspiration post for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  There is still plenty of time to play along with us--you have until March 31st to create any Christmas project and link it up for a chance to win 7 images from Bugaboo Stamps.  Here is my card:
 The green dotted paper and the green ribbon were in my bits and pieces stash.  And the number strip was already cut to that width, I just needed to trim the length.  I hope you get a chance to get inky and play along with us; it's a great way to get a jump start on your Christmas card stash:

Card Mania Challenge #78--polka dots and/or stripes
One Stitch At a Time #251--fancy borders (I used a scalloped border punch)
Clear It Out--theme: anything goes Stash: patterned paper over a year old (mine is at least two years old)
Creative Craft Cottage #59--Let's get sentimental
Penny's Challenge #268--anything goes
Inspiration Destination #76--anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday--a bit o' green
As You Like It--favorite style embossing (I love dry embossing, but there really is something magical about watching the powder turn with heat embossing)
Cute Card Thursday #416--lace or ribbon
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #272--gold
Hiding In My Craft Room #242--super scraps Saturday
