Created with Love Challenges - Christmas

Hello everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend.

Today begins a brand new challenge at
Our theme this week is

I'm so happy to tell you that our generous sponsor is
The lucky winner will have the chance to choose 4 images
from Delicious Doodles' incredible inventory.

Each of the CWLC Design Team members
were able to select our own images for this challenge.
This is the one I decided upon.
Isn't that pretty? I love it!

I guess I must be getting into the holiday spirit.  Lately making decorations has been the direction many of my challenge projects have been going.  Now to just get all of the other things down from the attic and get going on the actual decorating.

My project started out to be a smallish ornament
that could be hung on a tree.  Well, unless you're
talking about a huge tree, this isn't going to be an
ornament...maybe a tree topper.

Doesn't the star look intricate and difficult
to make?  Looks are so deceiving in this case!
It took me longer to color the image than it
took to make the ornament.

I found an outstanding video tutorial by Heidi over on YouTube.
You can see it here.  While you're there, you should check out some of Heidi's other vids.  She has a great teaching style and is so talented!!

The star is paper from just one sheet of double sided 12x12 DSP.  I believe it's from K&Company but I'm not positive.  Actually it's just 2/3 of  the sheet.  So this project is not only gorgeous; it's also very economical.
That makes it tops in my book!
(No comments about me liking things that are cheap and easy....)

I colored the image with my ProMarkers.

I'm very pleased with the way this decoration turned out.
Give them a'll be amazed at how easy they are!

Don't forget to hop over to CWLC to post your new Christmas project.
All of us on the DT are looking forward to seeing loads of great items!

Thanks for stopping by today.
