2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #40


We're excited to bring you our next Christmas Card Challenge!  It's September already, wow.  How time flies!  This means we're only a bit over three months away from Christmas now.  Have you started working on your Christmas cards yet?  Hopefully, we'll be able to inspire you to get started.  We would like to thank all of you who were able to join us for our last challenge.  There were some wonderful entries. 

For this weeks challenge, we have a color combo, Chocolate, Cream & Cranberry.  Please keep in mind that all challenges are optional.  Any Holiday/Christmas/Winter card will do.  The idea is to help inspire you to get started on your Christmas cards.  Also, it is not necessary to use a SCRS stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!  Don't forget, it's the beginning of a new month, so there is a SCRS stamp up for grabs, to one lucky participant. 

Since it's the start of a new month, we also have a new guest designer.  Thanks so much to Katie for joining us last month.  Her cards were beautiful.  Our guest this month is none other than the wonderful Anita Hovey.  Here is a bit about her.

Anita is an avid crafter, playing more hours in her converted dining room than she does for her full-time social media business. She has been crafting for over 12 years, enjoying scrapbooking, general papercrafting, and mostly cardmaking. There is a card shop in her craft room to rival any ****mark store. Anita has worked on various design teams for rubber, digi and paper companies, as well as for some popular challenge blogs. Anita is currently working from home to build her social media consultancy Twirp Communications, so she can be home when her two daughters arrive on the bus after school. She lives in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia on the east coast of Canada, eh?

Here is Anita's beautiful card for this weeks challenge.

And here are the cards from our fabulous design team.

See?  Fabulous!  Please remember to link directly to the blog post or gallery page where we can view/comment on your creation and not just the generic link to your blog. Generic blog links will be disabled or deleted. To get the full URL, click the title of your blog post (which will load a page that has just that post on it), then copy and paste the URL. You must create a new project, no backlinking please.

Don't forget to post a comment so we know you added a card! If you are uploading to an online gallery such as Splitcoast, please use the tag SCCC40, so that we can all enjoy your cards.

We can't wait to see what you come up with!
