Going Green at the 12 Months of Christmas Blog

This month at the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge Blog, the optional theme is to "Add Some Greenery." My greenery is in my holly border on the left, in the poinsettia under the sentiment and in my patterned papers from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. My image is called "Joyeux Noel" from Luna Girl, who offers tens of thousands of vintage ephemera images. Lunagirl is sponsoring the August challenge.

This month, in order to have a chance to win the prize from Lunagirl, our guest sponsor, you are asked to create a card that has GREENERY (Christmas trees, wreaths, holly and berries, ivy, pine boughs, poinsettia plants, mistletoe, etc.) featured prominently in your overall design. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Now, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win the featured paper set. But if you follow the theme, the prize offered is a $15.00 gift certificate to the Lunagirl store.

How's your stash of Christmas cards coming along? I've got a nice amount already, and it's only August!! At this rate, I should have time to create some tags to go along to the presents I'm giving out. This year my family has decided to adopt the Icelandic tradition of giving books as presents. They give them out on Christmas Eve, and everyone starts reading them that night, but it's nice to unwrap a present on Christmas Day. Maybe instead of tags, I'll create bookmarks to go with the books I give out...

Back to the challenge- make sure you link your holiday cards by the last day of the months for your chance to win the prizes offered. Good luck and happy crafting!!
