Santa's little extra helper and CPS#34

the DCM Santa's little extra helper this week is 'Christmas Words'.

Christmas Words
We'd like you to use Christmassy words on your card, not just in the sentiment but for this challenge the word/s should form the main focus of your card - like in Rhi's "
In a Word" dare of a couple of weeks ago
I have been wondering how to use the CPS sketch #34 this week so decided this was a good time to do it.

Supplies: I used a stamp from a set of Christmas stamps from Lakeland Limited, I have had them for years, the sentiment says 'keep the spirit of christmas in your heart and honor it all year long'. the papers are Basic Grey Dasher pack, little charm from a candle bought in Au Natural during the sales, white cardstock and green bazzill. Ribbon and half pearls - don't know where they are from but I hope I spot some again as I am starting to get low on them!

Wow, this is so red, not my usual colour but I played with some alcohol inks and got this very red background to start from.
Supplies: Stamp from stamp set as above, black stazon, Adirondack alcohol inks - wild plum and caramel, acetate, MM eyelets, Papermania adhesive stones, Papers from Basic Grey Dasher pack, red ribbon.
