CHRISTMAS......? It is at FOR FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Over at FOR FUN CHALLENGES this week, we are challenging you to create something CHRISTMAS! Be it a card, a gift, a scrapbook layout, it's up to you, as long as your project is a Christmassy one, we'd LOVE to see it!

Now, you'll be delighted to know we have a brand new sponsor this week, and you are going to LOVE his images, they are just so amazing! Rick St Dennis is offering up all 3 christmas images used by the DT this week, as well as AT LEAST 3 MORE fabulous images! You can visit Dennis' blog AND his etsy shop to see what I mean!

Here is a little info about the man himself.....
Designer of over 100 theatrical productions, Rick St Dennis (Donald McAfee) is also the author of 4 books on decorative painting and contributor to at least a dozen national magazines on crafts and art. He has taught design at the college level as well as seminars and classes across the USA and Canada. He is one of a handful of designers to have designed TWO productions of AIDA, Verdi's massive Egyptian opera spectacle. Currently living in the quiet beach communuity of Seal Beach, California he writes restaurant reviews and theatre reviews between assignments for web designs, logos and creating art for local shows. Rick has appeared on such TV shows as Home Matters with Susan Powell, Aileen's Crafts and others. He was Crafts editor for Country Folk Art Magazine and sells his artwork nationally through galleries and shows. Among numerous awards he won a presidential commendation in 1976 for his contributions to the bicentennial year including the design of the west coast premier of William Grant Still's opera BAYOU LEGEND. His drawings and paintings are in the collections of Diana Ross, Sandy Duncan, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jacqueline Onnasis amongst others.

And so, onto my card:

We were given a choice of 3 images to work with, and I simply couldn't choose which one to use, and so.........I used ALL 3 and created a horizontal waterfall card!

As you can see, Santa is at the front, and as you pull the tab on the right.........

............the dancing elf appears, closely followed by................

...............this adorable Angel and the greeting, which is attached to the pull-tab.

I used Nitwits 'Deer Friends' BPs, and also made a matching envie too.

The kiddies in our family are all fascinated by waterfall cards, so I tend to make quite a few! There are some great tutes on You Tube, click here to see one I found,) and once you've made your first one, and can see how it works, it really isn't as hard as you think, but it really IS effective!

There is some fabulous work on the challenge blog from some of the other DT girls, so please go and take a look, and we do hope to see you joining in with our challenge this week.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
