Time to Get Ready for Christmas!

Hi everyone, Doris here with our next challenge,
and we're continuing with our always popular
Get Ready for Christmas challenge.

If you play along with this challenge every month,
you'll have a nice stash of holiday cards 
by the end of the year!
We're also going to open this challenge for TWO 
weeks instead of one, and you can enter
up to FIVE entries instead of three.
Thanks once again to one of our
favorite sponsors    
 
 Prize - $10 gift certificate to the store
 
 Here's my little project using
Fat Little Santa
 
 
 
 Now, I love the monthly Christmas challenges,
but this image from Fred She Said is probably one 
of my favorites!  I chose a pre-colored image from
the shop and dug into my scrap pile for the
background papers.  I'm pretty sure I'll be
making quite a few more cards using this
adorable Fat Little Santa :)

Hop on over to Crafting by Designs HERE
and enter your project for a chance to wina
 $10 gift certificate to Fred She Said.

and started with a smallsilver frame.  Then I found a vintage
pearl dangly thingy - is that a crafty term?
I also made a ribbon and pearl tassle and attached that. 
 
I love how it turned out and think it
will look great attached to my planner. 

We'd love to see your projects - you can
