Is it February already?  Time flies!

Today I'm here with another 12 Months of Christmas Link Up Design Challenge.  This month we're featuring some really fun digi stamps by Scribbles Designs.

Here are the challenge details:
  • Blog link: The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up 
  • Challenge dates: February 1-29, 2016
  • Optional theme: "Winter Wonderland" - if you would like to participate in the optional theme for the month, create a card that's filled with snow (or at least has some form of snow on it). Also add "FT" after your name, so we can include it in the prize drawing. This theme is optional.  You only need to follow the theme if you are interested in winning a $10 Gift Certificate from Scribbles Designs.
