Challenge #6 - Christmas - Bonus technique Stickers - Challenge #5 winner

How creative everyone has been with last months Tree entries.
Thanks so much everyone for joining in.

Our Design Team had a hard time choosing,
but finally decided that our Design Team Favourite this month is:


Shelley used double-sided Christmas paper and some inexpensive red cardstock.  For one of the trees, Martha Stewart fringe scissors were used to cut the strips - once the resulting fringe is curled and then layered, the end tree looks almost fuzzy.

Congratulations Shelley!


Now the randomly drawn winner of the $10 gift certificate to CMD Cards from our last challenge is:

Deni # 22

Please send an email to Merry and she will provide you details on 9th December.
(She is busy galavanting around the countryside until then but will organise your prize on her return)
