2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #42

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the next challenge here at Christmas Card Challenges!  We had another week of awesome participation last week, and are blessed by those who got the opportunity to join us.  Christmas gets closer each week, so we hope you'll be able to join us for more challenges.

This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge, created by the fabulous Peggy Toole.  Please remember that all challenges are optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  The idea is to help jump start your Christmas mojo so you can get your cards done ahead of time.  Also, it is not necessary to use a SCRS stamp, but we sure love it when you do!


Here is the sketch, enlarged, so you can see it.  Isn't it great?  I think there are tons of possibilities with this sketch.


And here are the wonderful DT cards based on the sketch.

2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #41

Hello hello!

It's Sunday, which means it's time for another challenge here at the CCC blog.  We had another wonderful week of participation last week, and are always so thankful for that.  With the help of my friend, Random.org, we also have one lucky winner of a SCRS stamp.

Congrats to #22 - Pelle R!

Please send me an email (onecraftychica@gmail.com) with your info so that we can get your stamp out to you. 

Now, onto this weeks challenge, which is Vintage.  Please keep in mind that all challenges are optional.  The idea is to help jumpstart your Christmas mojo and help you get your cards done before the craziness arrives later in the year.  As always, any Winter/Christmas/Holiday card will do.


We have some awesome cards for your viewing pleasure this week, thanks to our amazingly talented DT.

2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #40

Hello!

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.
