Christmas in August

All of this week, the Dream Team and the Woodware UK teams are celebrating the release of the new holiday designs from Dreamweaver Stencils. Of course, no celebration is complete without prizes...and there are some fabulous ones for those commenting on both sides of the "pond".

Each team will be providing the opportunity to win four prize packages of stencil designs, perfect for the holidays. Just leave your comments each day on each players' post as well as the Dream It Up! and Woodware UK blogs, and the Dreamweaver and Woodware Facebook pages. Two random commentors will be chosen from the batch of weekday posts, one each from the DW and WW Facebook pages, and from the big hop on Saturday...from each side of the pond!* That's a total of eight prize packages up for grabs! Here's what you could win:

Today I decided to put together a card with pieces that started out on something else that I didn't end up using. The printed paper was a little square I had left from a larger 12x12 that I just couldn't throw away. The Gold pasted Christmas was from a Scrapbook page that I didn't use.

Start with LL3009 Christmas Script
Paste with gold paste, let dry. Once dry I used Xmas Red and Holly Stickles on the leaves and berries.
Putting it all together makes a simple Christmas card.

Don't forget to leave me some holiday cheer as you move on to the other players for today:
