Challenge #12-Chrismas is Coming! or Winter is Here!

Hi fellow challenge junkies! heh-heh, admit it, if you're anything like me, you're an addict.  snort!
I'm trying for that last push to get my Christmas cards done on time this year (you too?) so this theme will help us all do that.  If you're done your Christmas stash (or if you don't do Christmas cards) then a winter card will be fine for this challenge.
I've got the inlinkz option at the bottom of this post where you can link up your card.
 I'm going to do something a little different for blog candy with this month's challenge!  In the spirit of Christmas and giving, I am going to give away one digital image to the first 12 players!  AND I am opening up the contest to include EVERYONE (not just for those using one of my images)!! So if you are one of the first twelve players to link up your Christmas/winter card on here, you will get your choice of  one of my digital images from either Whimsy or Squigglefly!  How fun is that!
Now to keep it fair, you must make a card specifically for this challenge.  Any cards that are "back-linked" will not qualify.
And, if you don't make it in the race for top twelve, you can still have a chance to win at the end of this month.  I'll still draw a name (using from the participants, and that lucky person will get to choose 2 images of their choice from my collection.
So what are you waiting for!! Ready, set, get crafting!!

I've made both these computer generated cards using my new pre-coloured digi's for Whimsy Stamps in combination with some beautiful digital frames by Raindrop Echo Designs.   The deer card uses Ann's Winter Curvy Frame and the angel card uses Curvy Frame Small Dots.  This is taking digital images to the max (my opinion!) because everything was done on computer.  It takes awhile to get the template made, but once you do, they are a cinch to print off.  To me, this is the perfect solution to making large quantities of cards.  If you want more details, visit my personal blog.
The deer image is "Leap of Joy" and the angel image is "Touched by Love".  Both images are also sold as un-coloured digi's, as usual.  Here they are Leap of Joy   Touched by Love
Now here are the cards f rom challenge that I think qualified for my Artist's Choice Award!  I hope you pick up your trophy (on the right side bar) to display on your own blogs ladies! Congratulations to the following outstanding artists (in no particular order:
