It's the middle of the month again!

You know what that means, right?  We're even CLOSER to Christmas!  *BIG SMILE*  :)  It also means that the DT at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra have some mid-month cards to help you keep your mojo flowin'.  Here's mine!
This cutie patootie image is from the talented Tracey over at Fred, She Said.  She comes from the set called Emma The Caroler Pre-Coloured SetI love Emma!  So pretty!  This set comes in 8 different colored versions, which are all perfect!  I really need to print more of these out and make a set of cards!  I kept the layout really simple, to keep all eyes on Emma.  The white panel beneath the image layer is embossed with a Darice snowflake folder, but I forget which one.  The sentiment comes from Papertrey Ink's Signature Christmas set. 
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #18:  Anything goes or optional silver/gold theme
The Glory of Christmas #86:  Anything goes or optional no patterned paper theme
Sparkles Christmas #65:  Use 2 (or more) dies
Jingle Belles:  Frosty the Snowman (I went with the pre-Frosty version)
ABC Christmas:  Anything beginning with "L" (layers, lyrics in her songbook)
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  Warm winter clothing
A Snowflake's Promise #24:  Anything goes
Crimbo Crackers #108:  Anything goes
Christmas Card Challenges #28:  Anything goes or optional religious theme
Sweet Stampin':  Lotsa layers
Crafting with Friends #22:  Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #234-235:  Anything goes
Craft your Passion #316:  Anything goes
