Numbers Frugal 8.

Nessa has a competition on her blog to see if you can make a Christmas card using your  non traditional Christmas orientated stash. . You cannot use Christmas dies or stamps but you may use a Christmas sentiment and papers if you choose.
Here is what I have pulled out of my stash to use today.

A plain red & green papers plus a matching/ toning paper from the same pack.
(Pack by Hot off the Press  came free in a magazine)
Plain and fancy circle dies, corners( a waste product from a die cut )
plain white card stock and fancy blank card.
The numbers  and month were cut and saved  from an old calendar before it was discarded last yr.

Here is the completed card.
