I have some exciting news! The Challenge Design Team is BACK! YAY! After our Christmas Hop last month, Lesley asked us all if we would be interested in participating in a monthly Christmas Hop throughout the year.
Of course we all said YES!
The Challenge Design Team,
along with friends, Kelly Lunceford and Julee Tillman,
will be sharing Christmas creations
on the 25th of each month!!!
Every Christmas I seem to be rushing to get cards made to sell and to send myself. I know I'm not the only card maker out there who then winds up not sending the cards they make. I have vowed to change that this year! Ok, so "m not off to a good start but hopefully this monthly hop will help at least in my Christmas card department!
The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards in our stash all ready to go for December 2018! Hopefully we will inspire you as well to keep Christmas going, at least in your crafting, all year long.
So, hop along and be sure to visit each blog and leave everyone some blog love too.
There is a lot of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Label Die (Spellbinders); Mustache die (Stampin' Up); Glasses die (Paper Smooches); Sentiment die (Lil Inker Designs); Scallop frame die (WPlus9); Diamond shaped die (Catherine Pooler). Circle die for nose is part of an angel die (Poppy Stamps).
Using all die cuts can be a quick way to make several of the same card design. It does take some time diecutting all the pieces but once one is assembled, it goes pretty quickly. I think my most time consuming thing was figuring out which frame dies I wanted to use around the Santa face.
Keeping Christmas Blessings!
