December 2018 - Christmas

Welcome everyone to our final Challenge for 2018

We hope you have enjoyed our Challenges and wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and look forward to seeing all your entries for 2019

This month we have all chosen the theme Christmas and there will be a Random Org Winner picked only for this month x

Hi there, Miriam with you today, sharing my first project for the Christmas challenge.  I don't know about you but I am feeling very festive and really excited about the Christmas season.
Here is the card that I created for my first project

Pop over to my blog to see how I created this card.  I look forward to seeing your creations this month so hope that you join in the challenge with us.

I have mixed old and new crafts supplies on this Christmas make.

Come by my blog to find out how I made it, I'll just say that, exceptionally, no stamps have been harassed in the making of this card!

Hello everyone, 
It's December ! Time for our Christmas Challenge; I have made a vintage Christmas card with a YouTube tutorial ! 

If you'd like to see how I made this card please click HERE
You can also hop over to my blog HERE where you'll find a link to my YouTube Channel. 
I'll be back soon !

Hooray! We've finally arrive at my favourite time of the year...yes Christmas day is just 25 days away. I will be opening up the first window of my advent calendar this morning and lighting number 1 on my advent candle. 
As most people know I really am Mrs Christmas and love everything it. For my first design team piece my card just had to feature Father Christmas.
I love this stamp, it's from the new Tim Holtz Yuletide set and to me epitomizes everything about a traditional Santa. I even coloured him up traditionally. If you take a sleigh ride  pop over to my blog here you can see a step by step of how I made my card but shhhh, keep it a secret as I made it for my Hb and he hasn't seen it yet...ho ho ho! 🎅
Bye for now,

It's the most wonderful time of the year... I love Christmas - some may say a little too much, but bah humbug to them! I've gone back to some of my old favourite stamps and dies for my card, simply because I love them.
There are lots more pictures over on my blog, so I hope to see you over there. Have a very happy December, and I'll be back in a few big sleeps with my next project x

Hello there! I do hope you can join us this month - its certainly got to be the easiest theme! Go on! I had some fun with dies and distress oxides plus a Tim stamp. Check it out on my blog post here.

For our December challenge, I have made a wintery card with ice skates.
