Can you believe it is December already!?  Oh, my, where has this year gone?  Well, since it is a new month, it's time for a new challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, you can enter anything as long as it is Christmas related.  The challenge last for the the whole month, so if you haven't finished your Christmas cards, here's your chance.   Our sponsor is THE fabulous Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will get to choose 7 images!  Here is my card using "Christmas Words--Jesus";
The Bugaboo images are always so cute, and this one combines cuteness with the real reason for Christmas.  Can't beat that!  Oh, yeah, I threw in some sparkly snowflakes, too.  Another winning combo in my book.
