Santa's Little Extra Helper no 1

This week the Daring Cardmakers are starting off a series of Little Extras to help us get some Christmas cards made, as yes, it IS coming.... We've called it "Santa's Little Extra Helper".
We'll take a break for something else we've got planned at the end of this month, but then we'll return to help with those Christmas cards.

Here's the first Christmas Little Extra
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
So, ychipboard or wordy paper could be used for instance or check the link to Rhi's dare and of course the relevant links list for even more ideas.

I've used three of the papers from the English Paper Company's Festive Fun set,
shiny pink metallic eyelets,
silver thread
a few seed beads
and some inking of course

The paper is a much nicer blue than it looks here, but when I tweaked the colours in PSP to get the blue right, well the pink bits turned blue too!

Love the card and that paper is great. When my niece was in England working on her Masters we went over for Christmas and we had hats and Crackers at Christmas Supper, it was such fun.
