CHNC Extra DT Inspiration...April 1, 2017

The beginning of the 4th month already?!  Time is flying by...yesterday I turned 46.  WTH!  I can't be on the downhill ride toward 50!  I am waaaay too immature to be this!  Anyhow, I got a lot of birthday wishes, at work, and on FB; and some nice gifts from friends and family.  Overall, it was a good day!  But onto the reason we are here...a Christmas card!  :)
AAAAAND, it being the beginning of a new month, that means you can find this card, and the cards made by my talented fellow DT members, over at the CHNC Extra challenge blog!  For my card, I used the retired Eggbert Winter image from Bugaboo, and I followed the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:
The designer paper is from the Winter Whimsy 6x6 pad from "love Nicole", and all colored card stock is from Recollections.  Let's find some other challenges to add this to, shall we?
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #28:  ATG or optional "Ghosts of Christmas Past (vintage)" theme
Christmas Card challenges #9:  ATG or optional "Mittens" theme
CHNC #327:  ATG Christmas or optional "Funny" theme
Crimbo Crackers #129:  Snowflakes
Cutie Pie #109:  Dies and Digis
CHN Patterned Paper:  ATG using patterned paper
Di's Digi Designs:  Add some texture (Swiss Dots embossing folder on blue strip)
Well, that's it.  Man, it feels like it took me all day to complete this post, because it did!  That's what happens when life gets in the way, I guess.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to check out the DT creations, and join in the challenge yourself!  God Bless!  :)
