A Start Studded Christmas

Merry Christmas, well almost. It just feels like Christmas with a wonderful gift from our guest designer Patti Milazzo who created a Fancy Pants' Rough and Tough Christmas ornament for her son Alex. Awesome! I read the instructions for the 3-dimensional star and I’m going to have to make a Rough and Tough star from my tree. My 16 year old will be relived that I have a “real” guys ornament up! LOL

Thank you Patti for the inpiriation. Would you like to be inspired over and over again. You can find Patti at Crafting Life {my blog}

Tips:To create the 3-dimensional stars, cut out the star shapes from patterned paper or cardstock. On the back of the star, score lines from each star tip to the center. Fold on the scored lines so that the arms of the star push out as you look at the front of the star. Then, on the front side of the star, score lines from the center the indented points between star tips. Now fold these scored lines so that they push in to create the 3-dimensional star.

You can order Fancy Pants Rough and Tough kit and other embellishments from Debby’s Dream Studio. You pick you own sale sale is going on right now!  From now through Friday we ship the next day!

I will be doing my end of the year blog make-over. You will start to see changes here, there and everywhere! One addition to Debby’s Dare is my “widget.” See at the top right hand side. It even has tabs…one is Debby’s Dare blog, one tab is my youtube channel, one is what I doing Twitter, another is a new commitment for Debby’s Dares. You can embed this widget on you blog and other sites and follow along with the happening in the world of Debby’s Dare and you give an opportunity to let your blog readers know that you enjoy Debby’s Dare.

How about a Debby’s Dare widget giveaway? Click on the part of the widget that reads “get widget.” It will give you a code that you can put on you site. There will not be any advertising that pops up out of nowhere. (I really dislike that.)

Giveaway? I will randomly draw several winners for some Prima Bling. A girl needs to “bling” in the New Year with a little sparkle! I’ll be drawing a winner a day through Friday! Leave a comment letting me know where the widget went. If you have nowhere to leave a widget then bring 3 friends (3 for each day's giveaway) over to say hello and make sure they leave your name. Happy Bling Year!
