Out with the Old, In with the New at the 12 Months of Christmas Link-up Blog

What a year 2016 has been! Changes in my personal life, my work life, my family life...political drama and economic upheaval...
I am certainly glad to close the curtain on the last 12 months and focus on the new year. If you are, too, then the best place to start your year off is at the 12 Months of Christmas Blog. You can keep that fuzzy warm holiday feeling while starting on your Christmas cards for Christmas, 2017.
This month the optional theme is "Out with the Old, In with the New." I say optional, but IF you choose to create a holiday card with the theme in mind, don't forget to put the letters FT by your name and you'll have a chance to win a gift certificate to our January sponsor's Store, Ike's Art.
My craft room is still being held captive by the contractors, so I created this digital card using an image from Ike's Art called "  ".
My OLD in this card were all the papers & elements from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles & Pixel Scrappers.
My NEW in this card is the digital image from Ike's Art.

A lot of digital goodies went into my card.
Papers: Decosse's Dynamite Doodles- A Touch of Summer Sunburst & Waves; Grungy Christmas Burgundy Textured paper; Glitterati Gold Glitter paper; An Eclectic Christmas-Gold & Silver Diagonals patterned paper.
Elements: Decosse's Dynamite Doodles A Touch of Summer Bucket; Pixel Scrappers Sheila Reid's Santa Hat, Pauline Thompson's Wire Doodle 7, Sharon Dewi Stolp's Winter Wonderland Red Poinsettia, Brooke Gazarek's Blank Green Tag.

Are you going to start the New Year with some creativity? I hope it's a Christmas card, and I hope you link it up at the 12 Months of Christmas blog for your chance to win prizes!
