"O Tannenbaum" or OK Another Christmas Tree :-)

Hi everyone.  Hope you have had a fabulous week. I know, I know, you would rather I didn't remind you how little time there is left before Christmas.  But what is a girl to do?!  Some of you might want to know.

So for those that don't want to know - look away now!

THERE ARE ONLY 32 DAYS till Christmas!!!!

OK! You can look again now - LOL!  Sooorrrrryy :-)

Anyhow, back to the post!  Here we are another week gone and another start of a new challenge over at Polka Doodles.  We are in week 47 - phew!  Our theme this week is Inspired by a Christmas Carol. but you can also enter Anything Goes with a Christmas Theme :-)

Our DT brief was to use 2 Polka Doodles CD's on one creation.  I decided to take a closer look at the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD and low and behold, I found some cut files.  There are these fabulous snowflakes on there and I used one of them as the background under the tree.  I had to use the trace feature in Silhouette Design studio and it cut it perfectly.  The papers are also from this CD.

The second CD I used was the new release A Home for Christmas CD.  The tree is a pre-coloured image, that I have glittered up and added a holographic snowflake to the top.  The sentiment is also from the CD, in black and white, I coloured the holly with some pencils.  The main snowflake and the tree have been raised up on some pop dots for some added depth.

For the inside, I used the same paper as the front (and yes the paper is two toned - I think one of my inks maybe clogged or need replacing).  The centre piece is actually an offset image from the front snowflake, that I then made smaller and inked the edges, adding those little stamped snowflakes to finish off.

So, it's your turn now to get creating.  Did you guess what my inspiration carol was?  Hint - it's in the post title LOL!

There is still an offer on over at Polka Doodles, of £5 off every CD and don't forget there is free shipping world wide on any purchase of £10 or more.

Have fun and hope yo see you taking part this week.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
