I found some time in my craft room on Sunday afternoon a couple of weeks ago, and this is what I cam up with:

Christmas Countdown Day 1- Joy to the World & Single Star

This is one of the cards we made in my Christmas card classes this year.  

It features the SINGLE STAR stamp (item #138813 $11.95) and the greeting is from the stamp set JOY TO THE WORLD on page 24 of the holiday catalogue (item#131799 $20.95) 

The girls made two of these cards- one in real red and one in elegant eggplant- which was gorgeous! Don't you just love the 3D effect of the star by simply scoring and folding- easy peasy!
