Christmas Challenge!

It's a new month and time for a new challenge over at our Seriously Creative Challenge Blog! We're keeping it easy for December and challenge with "All Things Christmas!" 

In past years we've had a Christmas Card Contest in the store, but we're replacing it with the challenge this year, so we'd love to see you play along!  You can enter online on the Challenge Blog website OR you can bring your project into the store to show us :) 

Normally on the challenge blog we award a prize to a random winner... and we're doing that this month as well, but IF we get more than 10 entries, we'll also award another prize to one participant selected by members of our Design Team!   Our random prize will 'grow' depending on the number of entries... starting with a 6x6 pad from one of our fave paper companies.  Watch for more specifics on the prize next week, but for now... get out there and create something for Christmas!

Now that I've said all that... here's a couple Christmas cards I wanted to share with ya!  These are two of the cards from my "Totally Tim Christmas Card Class"  earlier this week.  Both start with base cards from Tim's District Market Collection.

This first card features a tag (inked with the new, Limited Edition, Festive Berries Distress Ink) embellished with a rosette (red inked kraft resist paper) with mica fragments on it and yummy crackle coated grungeboard numbers.  The ticket is also a stamp of Tims, and the other die cuts are kraft glassine misted with Perfect Pearls Mist.

The second card was quite simple- a green inked tag, more Kraft resist (this time with white Distress Stain), Movers & Shapers dies and a die cut word with Distress Stickles.  The yummy glitter brads are from We R Memory Keepers.
Hope you like... and hope you'll play along with our challenge!
