Hello Everyone!
Hope everyone had a great weekend.  It is the first Monday of the month and that means a new Challenge on the Vintage Stamping Challenge blog.
The theme for this month is:

Christmas Songs

Make a project with stamping inspired by a Christmas song or carol.  The challenge runs through the month of December.  One winner will receive a $20 GC to Flonzcraft Stamps!!

**The carol that inspired my tri-fold Holiday card is "Here We Come A Wassailing"
Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green;
Here we come a-wand'ring
So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too;
And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year
And God send you a Happy New Year.
