24 sleeps to go!

Yaaay! only 24 more sleeps to go before Santa turns up, my youngest grandson is super excited, we've been counting sleeps for months LOL! and it's so much easier to count now we are actually in December.
Today is also the start of  a new Paper Creator challenge and this time around the theme is..... aww go on, I bet you can't guess what it is.... mmmm, what could it be now that we are in December ?, Valentines day? Easter ? or could it be...

The winner will receive a £10 store credit to spend in the Paper Creator store.
Paper Creator products are not essential, but you will gain an extra entry into the random draw if using them. The challenge runs for the whole of the month and the winner is announced at the start of the next month's challenge.

I made two cards for today's challenge, using both the pink and blue versions of Candy Star Ted Ultimate kits.
For the blue version I made an offset gate fold card and decorated it with papers, a topper and sentiment from the kit. I added blue and brown glitter to some of the elements and a punched gold star to the topper. The candy cane is glittered and I added polar white flower soft to his hat brim, pompom and coat hem, all finished off with a brown gingham bow.

With the pink kit I made a circle card using a Spellbinders Grand circle die, I cut a frame from silver glitter card, using the same die as for the card with a Lifestyle inverted scallop die in the centre. I did the same on a smaller scale for the sentiment. The paper, image and sentiment all came from the kit and the image was decorated in the same way as the blue one, and once again I finished it all off with gingham bows.

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the amazing creations from my fabulous teamies.
