2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #39

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our next challenge here at the Christmas Card challenge blog.  Wow, did we have some excellent participation and entries last week.  They were all wonderful, and we're so thankful that you joined us for last weeks challenge.

Onto this weeks challenge, which is to incorporate a photo.  I know, interesting, right?  Please keep in mind that our challenges are optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  The idea is to get your Christmas stash started so you're not rushing around at the end of the year to get them done.  Also, it's not necessary to use a SCRS stamp on your project, but we sure love it when you do.


We have some lovely cards created by our talented design team this week.  Check out how they incorporated their photos.

2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #36

Greetings!!

It's Sunday, which brings us to another Christmas Card challenge!  What wonderful entries we had last week.  You guys are really doing an outstanding job at getting your cards done.  Thanks so much to all who joined us.

This weeks challenge is: Recycle!  Please keep in mind that the challenges are optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  It's not required that you use a SCRS stamp, but we sure love it when you do.  Also, it's the first challenge of the month, which means there is a lovely SCRS stamp up for grabs. 


We would like to thank Kay for being a great guest designer last month.  Her cards were stunning and we enjoyed working with her.  Since it is the beginning of a new month, we also have a new Guest Designer.  Please help me welcome Katie Tate.  Here is a bit about her, in her own words.


I’m Katie, an Englishwoman who has lived in the US for fourteen years. I’m married to the love of my life and we have three wonderful children.

I’ve been scrapbooking for thirteen years and card making for two and a half years.

I’m passionate about my Copic Markers and was Copic Certified a year ago.

My favorite techniques, apart from coloring of course, are paper piecing and paper tole (decoupage), I love anything that will give my image depth.

No image is off bounds to me, rubber, acrylic, digital, even a coloring book will do, just as long as I can color!

Here is Katie's first card for this month, isn't it gorgeous?
And here are the cards made for you by our lovely design team.
