We Three Kings - DT card MIM #117

Oooh!!! another week closer to Christmas and I'll have to start thinking about ordering food and finding presents to buy. We have an engagement, a wedding, several singing engagements, craft breakups, babysitting etc, etc....... It's a busy time, but for now I just want to let you know that there's a new Linky Party starting up over at Make It Monday and we would love to see you there.
Congratulations to Mandy for being our featured artist from last week and also to Carole for being the winning commenter.
We are being sponsored this week by the fab Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. I have used this wonderful image of three men out carol singing (as a singer, I'm always drawn to characters with their mouths open wide sharing the talent that God gave them - you don't always need to have a great voice, just the joy of wanting to sing!!!!)  and what better time to use your voice than at Christmas time, enjoying the carols with family and friends.
So here is my card......

 Love the big star and snowflake and the twine wrapped and tied around the bottom.

There were so many wonderful entries I had to pick a second POTW and chose this cute little treat bag by Bettina and you can find it here on her blog, Bettands Hobbykrok - Bettina has also given a link to a tutorial for this little bag too.
