A Christmas Carol or song

........that's the theme of this week's challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge. After gawping for ages at my stamps and other goodies the final choice came down to 'speed and a Stickeroo':
I used:

- DL white card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Together in Christmas' sheet, mounted onto SU 'Gumball Green' card and fixed right at the end to the card with sticky pads

- patterned green paper, with the cross stitch border and sentiment already printed, from The Paper Studio's 'Cozy Little Christmas' paper pack - bought in New Mexico

- from the same pack, very finely striped red backing paper, with one edge punched using Martha Stewart 'Cherish' border punch

And the song? Why - 'Deck the halls with boughs of holly' of course :) With a bauble thrown in for good measure!

This is also going into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for April, where it's always 'Anything Goes'.

Just love this one! (And I happen to have that sticker!) Went through my stuff today, asked some friends "What do you have that is Christmas Carol-y?" No bananas, but I did scarf up some other stuff one lady was cleaning out! I'm thinking I have a Rudolph colored & I could go with Rednosed Reindeer!! Really did like your border edging too. TFS

You need to be quick, Di, to get a cheese scone before they have all gone. I will try to save you one. I can recommend the mint choc ice cream though, absolutely scrumptious, and totally additive free, just good fresh ingredients. xx Maggie

Loving the traditional colours of this Chrimbo card. The strong sentiment works so well with the Stickeroo bauble.

Love this Di! You have reminded me that I have a sheet of Stickeroos somewhere. I could make at least five cards from it and be ahead!
