12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge #5

Moring peeps.  While Christmas is still over 7 month away, it's not too soon to start planning those cards to avoid the last minute rush.  Over at The 12 Month of Christmas Link Up, it's time for another challenge.  The theme for this one is Christmas Critters.  Our fabulous sponsor for this month is Deedee's Digis.  Hop on over there and pick up some of her great collections.  You get more bang for you buck when you get her images. 

Cute penguins, fluffy bears, and raucous reindeer, oh my!  Christmas is such a fun time of year.  Even the animals around us get in on the act--with a little help from us of course. This month's challenge is all about the furry critters that entertain us during the holidays. 
 In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, make sure that your card showcases an animal suitable for a holiday card.  It can be in your image, your paper or even your embellishments.  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.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $25.00 gift card from Deedee's Digis.

My image and sentiment are from Deedee's Digi collection called Peace on Earth.  You can find it and many others in her store here.
Again, I used the 5.5 x 5.5 square step card for my creation.  I  am in love with this fold and there is still plenty of room inside for a greeting.  I cut the card base, the design paper and the image using my Cameo.  I also used the print and cut to print the image first.    The sentiment is printed on my printer, but is from the Peace of Earth collection. 
Materials used:
Peace on Earth image from Deedee's Digis
Sentiment from Peace on Earth from Deedee's Digis
Paper Temptress Cryogen White cardstock for base
Decosse Dynamite Doodles Snowfest printed paper
Recollections black cardstock
