This post is a little bit late,

...But as the saying goes:  Better late than never, right?  I hope so anyway!  At any rate, I am here now to share with you my DT inspiration for the December CCAYR mid-month post:
I had a total of 4 of these heat embossed sentiment panels sitting on my desk for some time, waiting for a good time to put them to use.  I figured now was as a good a time as any, when I needed more Christmas cards I could send in the mail, AND something for the Christmas Cards All Year Round "Anything Christmas/Holiday" theme for December.  Went pretty CAS with these, using the same layout and process for them all.  I heat embossed all the colored layers using the same powder as the sentiment, then glued all the layers together with Tombow and put them under a stamping block to dry flat.  I only had the time to complete the green and silver ones before the deadline, but later on, I completed the red and gold ones as well.
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #24:  ATG or optional Welcome to the North Pole theme
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  Inspired by a song or singing image (I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas)
Crafty Calendar:  Christmas Time
The Outlawz Festive Friday:  Go Caroling Day
613 Avenue Create #192:  ATG or optional Holiday Happiness twist
Come and Get It:  Christmas
Thanks for stopping by today!  May God bless you this Christmas season, and all throughout the coming year!
