Merry Christmas

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it's time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is me!!!!!

STAR – Stars decorate our Christmas Trees and also helped show where Jesus was laying in his Manger all those many years ago. So for our challenge this week we are using the word ‘STAR’ – incorporate something starting with each of the letters in the word.

Here are a few suggestions to help you, but of course you are not limited to these ... Use your imagination!

S = Santa; Sleigh; Stockings; Star; Snowman; Snowflakes; Snow; Sage; Saffron; Sapphire; Scarlet; Sepia; Silver; Square

T = Tree; Toy; Train; Tiger; Teddy; Teacher; Turkey; Triangle; Teal; Taupe; Turquoise

A = Arrow; Apple; Animals; Aqua; Apricot; Amber; Angel

R = Red; Reindeer; Rabbit; Rainbow; Rain; Rose; Ring; Rug; Round; Rectangle

For my card today I have created another Window Card using the Lorna Label Pop Up die set. Karen Burniston shared how to create this style of card early in November. You can see Karen's video for this tutorial here.

To decorate my card I used the Snowman Peel Off Stickers which includes the snowman and all the Trees included in the set. I also used the snow border from the Outdoor Edges die set to create the snow on the bottom of my card.

I used the following to use the letters of the word STAR when I created my card ...
S = Snowman; Snow; Snowflakes; Sleigh
T = Trees
A = Angel (on front of card)
R = Red

Here is another look at the front of my card when it is fully closed.
