Hi friends. It's with a heavy heart that we inform you that Christmas Card Challenges will be closing its doors after this challenge. It's been running since November 2009 so for a full 8 years. We are so glad that so many of you have joined us over the years working on getting your Christmas and holiday cards done throughout the year. It's been a true pleasure working on this team for the past 8 years. We also want to thank all the designers, both current and past, who have helped contribute to this blog and making it a success these last 8 years.  Big hugs to everyone!!!



Before we get to the very last challenge, we want to announce the winners from our previous challenge. Winners, please feel free to grab the badges that are listed on the sidebar of the blog and display them proudly on your blog.











We have a fun inspiration photo to help get you inspired.
