Paper Therapy-December 20 2010

Hello all!! Welcome to our  twelfth challenge at  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! The previous eleven have been SUPER fun and were seeing some really incredible designs!

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

  This week's challenge was to create a Christmas Card or layout! Boy, was I happy for this!! I have been making Christmas Gifts ALL WEEK LONG from after to work to bedtime, and I needed a break from gift making to do something different!! So, here's what I made!

The Christmas tree is super easy to make. Cut five triangles from paper, fold them in half and adhere the backs to each other! It's the perfect embellishment!

Now it's your turn! Make sure to post your card or layout to the message board by midnight on Saturday, December 18th. I hope that you play along with us this week at  Paper Therapy
