Hiding in My Craft Room #383 - KISS

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!

Here's my post  for HIMCR #383 - KISS! With a Twist!

Keep is Simple Sweetie!

But of course since it's December, there's a little twist! Let's keep the theme of Christmas! Or December Holiday!

I have made a Christmas card...

The sponsor is MHK Designs!

The giveaway is 3 online products!

I have used a sentiment from

The sentiment is a quote from my favourite Christmas poem

A Visit from St. Nicholas
Clement Clarke Moore1779 - 1863
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house  
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;  
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,  
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;  
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads...
The rest of the card just uses cardstock from the Create and Craft Flocked Christmas Set. I die cut three stockings using a Tattered Lace die from last year's Advent Calendar.

Hope you will join the HIMCR challenge!
