A Time for Giving

There's a new challenge right now over the 12 Months of Christmas Link Up  Blog. 
This month the theme is a Time for Giving - Card for a child.
Christmas is most definitely a time of giving and who better deserving of our thoughtfulness than the children of the world.  Whether children in our own lives or those that are strangers, there is nothing better than looking upon the face of a child opening a Christmas gift.  Second to that is seeing how excited a child can be when they receive their own special card meant especially for him or her.

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, we want to see a Christmas or other holiday card meant for a child between the ages of 0 & 12.  
You don't need to follow the theme to 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 $10 gift certificate to the Imagine That! Digis by Kris store.

Why not consider donating your card and maybe a few extra to your local hospital or shelter?!  Help make a child's day a special one this Christmas. 

For my DT project I've used the Snowman Trio, they are so cute and great fun to colour.

Snowmen B02, B12, B000, C01, C03, C0
