Phindy's Friday Challenge

Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge. The theme this week is "Christmas is Coming". I LOVE making Christmas cards, in fact I try to make a few each month all year long. There are tons of images in the Phindy's Place store that would work well for this challenge, so check them out. This little one comes from the Christmas/Winter Cuties section, he's called Downhill from Here.

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive!

Moving Along With The Times -  Sparkle (lots of stickles on the snow and fur trim)
