Cas Christmas card

Happy Sunday

Hi there . Welcome to my room and thanks for calling in .
There are a couple of new followers to thank too . I hope that you enjoy your visits here . I do hope also that you let me know that you have visited so I can return the call .


I hope that everything is falling into place smoothly for you  and that you are all able to enjoy pre Christmas gatherings .

Now , I would say that most of you would have posted off your Christmas cards by now so that any made from  now  on will give you an early start for 2015 supplies .
Does that apply to you?

I think that this one will be  for my 2015 collection.

This is my DT sample for   http://christmascardchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/


 

The card base is of acetate . The sentiment and images are from Kaszazz  .
 The inside paper is from SU.
 
Quote from our leader about some changes made last week.
 
"I also wanted to mention something new that we will be starting this week at Christmas Card Challenges. We will be picking winners each week. We will have a top overall winner and also our favorite 3. Winners will be announced the following Sunday during the next challenge post. Our DT member Heather, who made the awesome challenge graphics that you've been seeing for the last few weeks, has made up some fabulous badges that will be awarded.
 
In order for us to do this, the linky feature will now only be through Friday night at 11 pm, MST. This will allow us to review the entries and make our selections to have for the post on Sunday. Exciting, right? "
 
Do pop over to the DT blogs and see how they presented their projects and say hello before you go . 
 
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. The linky feature won't allow for generic blog links. You must create a new project. No backlinking please.

If you upload to an online gallery, please use the tag SCCC so that we can all enjoy your cards
 
 
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Oh Christmas Tree...

Hello Crafting pals , welcome to my room and thank you for calling in .
Hope that your weekend is a happy one .

Today is my first posting for my new DT spot with Christmas Card Challenges Blog .
I do hope that I have timed this post just right
I had entered this challenge earlier in the month , before being invited to join DT , and I did so because it served two purposes .
One,  I needed inspiration for my own workshops and two because I needed the push /commitment to have enough Christmas cards made for the year for myself  .

Alanna - DT Coordinator  thank you for the invitation to join you and the team here .

Challenge #52 Has inspiration photo of Christmas tree .

 
Check out the Challenge blog for all the rules and be prepared to be  amazed by the DT samples shared . The most important rule is to have fun and create a Christmas themed card.

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. The linky feature won't allow for generic blog links. You must create a new project. No backlinking please.
