My new design team!!

As you know if you follow my blog, I post a lot of cards to the 12 Months of Christmas link up each month.
Well, I applied to be a member of the design team and I was asked to join!!  I'm super thrilled!
So this month, the  optional theme is Christmas trees.

If you celebrate Christmas, do you put up a Christmas Tree each year?  If you do, do you opt for a real one, a fake one, a small ceramic (for those who live with curious cats like I do) or some other kind of Christmas Tree?  Do you put it up right after Thanksgiving, wait until Christmas Eve, or maybe put it up somewhere in between?  Most families have their own traditions passed down which they continue from year to year.  The decorations people put on their trees are as varied as the trees themselves!  Some are sparse with their choices and others make sure that very little green is left showing.

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, we want to see a decorated Christmas Tree somewhere on your card.  Baubles, glass ornaments, twinkling lights, garland, tinsel and even strips of popcorn are popular choices.  We can't wait to see what your decorated tree will look like!  If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize. 
Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of 3 digital stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs.

For linking up a minimum of 2 cards you will get one of the digital papers designed by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.  And one random winner will get the set of 6 digital papers. 
It's a win, win challenge no matter what!  You get more cards made for Christmas giving and could even win digi's too!

For my card, I used 2 images from Fresh Brewed Designs. 
 I did some paper piecing on the couch, then colored santa with my pencils.  For the tree I used one of the digital papers you could win this month then added red glitter and sequins.
 I added glitter to Santa's hat and some crystal effects on the glass of milk.
I hope you'll join us this month and each month.  You can link any Christmas card at all!  If you use the optional theme it will give you more chances to win the prize!
