La La Lands Guest DT - Anything But a Card

Happy Wednesday!
Are you almost ready for the big day?
Tomorrow it's Christmas Eve but there's still time for a new creation from LaLa Lands.
This week to team was required to make "Anything But A Card" and that is so much fun for me.
I've always been an "altering" kind of gal and so these are never "challenges" for me, more like time to have some fun!
A couple of weeks ago I found this cute wooden Christmas Tree at Hobby Lobby and imagined it with someone standing next to it. But I didn't think I'd get time to make it this year but then I got the super cute LaLa with Ornament and this challenge came up and I knew I had the perfect combination.
So I ended up with a new Christmas decoration and you ended up with a new project to see!

I also found a few challenges to help me along the way.

Trimmies had a Free week
365 Cards Day 292 had a AD for inspiration
Paper Make Up had a Christmas theme with Red, Green and White
Frosted Design had a Paper Piecing theme and I paper pieced the tree.
Allsorts also wanted Anything But A Card
Alphabet Challenge were at J for Jewels
Corrosive wanted to see Bling!
Hand Full Of Stamps wanted to see Red (a little or a lot)
Stamp Something had a theme of "Holiday Somethings"

I traced the tree and paper pieced the tree, star and trunk. I painted the base and added Puffy Paint and Glitter to make snow.
I stamped LaLa with Ornament twice and colored her with Copic's. I cut her out and popped one up on Pop Dots.
I added Christmas trim and rhinestones for the ornaments on the tree.
Finally I made a gift and added it under the tree.

Here's a close up of cute Lala!
You can see all the other wonderful team work on their blogs
If you have time in your busy Holiday schedule maybe you can enter the challenge to at LaLa Lands!
Have a wonderful Christmas!
