DDS Anything But A Card Challenge

Are you ready for another Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge? Are you ready for Christmas? Do you need a little break to do something crafty? Then join the Doodle Dragon Studios Design Team in an Anything But A Card Challenge. Be sure to link it before Sunday, December 25th (Merry Christmas!).

This project is dedicated to all those who are over having a "white Christmas" and are dreaming of "just another day in paradise." For the record, I'm first in line! I know it sounds funny that I'm not a snow fan, living in Utah with the greatest snow on earth, but it's true. Snow is pretty in the mountains and on Christmas Eve/Day. Other than that, it can stay high up in the mountains until I want to come visit it. When we lived in San Diego I didn't miss the snow a bit. Especially when I was Christmas shopping in my shorts!

To make the palm leaves, simply put the lei out flat, then fold it in half. There should be four layers. Then tie a ribbon (I used brown raffia) in the middle. Thread through your ornaments and tag. Then tie to the bottle. This is also super cute when you attach it to an A&W Rootbeer 2 liter (instead of pina colada mixer). It looks like a real palm tree.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa...

Yeah, I need a little direction on this topic myself. Hopefully Dudley can get us some answers!

While we wait, would you like to join in another Doodle Dragon Studios Christmas Challenge? Of course you do! For this challenge use a Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios image with NON traditional Christmas colors. Then post it over on the Pike's Playground Challenge by Sunday, December 11th.

Hope you're not on the Naughty List! Merry Christmas!
