2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #48

Greetings!

Wow, you guys are rockin those Christmas cards!  We had some amazing and wonderful entries last challenge.  So thankful for all who joined us, and your participation, as always.  So, we're at week #48, which leaves just four more weeks until we're done with this years chard challenges.  How quickly time seems to go by, huh?  Don't forget tomorrow is the last day to apply to be on the 2012 Design Team.  We're also looking for a few more guest designers as well.  For all of the details, click HERE.

2011 Christmas Card Challenge Week #44

Hello to all!

Welcome to another challenge here at the Christmas Card Challenge blog!  We had some wonderful entries last week.  Thanks to all who were able to join us.  So, how are your Christmas cards coming along?  Have you started them yet?  We are only 84 days away from Christmas now.  Hopefully, you'll be inspired to get started using one of our challenges.  

The challenge we have this week is: Tags!  You can interpret this in any way you like as long as there is a tag somewhere.  Please keep in mind that all challenges are optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  The idea is to help you get your Christmas card stash started.  It is not necessary to use a SCRS stamp in your project, but we sure love it when you do.  Also, since it is the first week of the month, we have a SCRS stamp up for grabs!


Being that it is the start of a new month, we also have a new guest designer.  Thanks so much to Anita who was our guest last month.  Her cards were absolutely gorgeous!  Without further delay, allow me to introduce you to October's guest designer, Deonna Bemish.  Here is a bit about her, in her own words.


My name is Deonna Bemish. I am a SAHM of 2 wonderful children ages 10 and 12.  I’ve made cards and other paper crafts for about 5 years now. I’ve been a guest designer for a couple of  blogs, but never committed full time yet.  I’ve always had a passion for paper, even as a kid.  I sell most of my cards at our church. I also share in the responsibility of a monthly workshop that we have at our church where women come and Pay @$10 and go home with 4-5 projects.  All the proceeds go to Back to school backpacks and Supporting a Pastor at Seminary. Paper crafting is a way for me to “Give Back”.

Here is her first card for this month.  Isn't it gorgeous?! 


Our design team have also created some awesome projects for you this week.  Check them out!
