Dottie's World Sunday Challenge - 115 Days to Christmas!

It's my turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World and it is a special challenge because there's a fabulous prize for everyone who takes part this week!!! The task is simply to create something Christmassy - anything goes... cards, decorations, layouts, tags - anything.

I made this Jacob's Ladder (and the box) using lots of the fabulous Christmas images available here by using the tutorial on the Charmed Cards and Crafts website here . I used the coloured images for this project and highlighted some areas using Sakura Stardust pens which are fab for detail work. This would make a great Christmas wall hanging or a special Christmas card or gift.

Don't be daunted by this - it is a little time consuming, but really easy to do and the results are worth it!
Hope you
