So another incredible thing today is that I have met one of my New Year's resolutions; at least for the first month. I told myself that I was going to try to make at least 5 Christmas cards each month so I wasn't behind in December, like I have been the last few years. So I finished 6 Christmas cards today. They are all the same but that's okay with me.
progressive Christmas challenge at DigiStamps4Joy. You just need to follow the directions at their site to get the first image, use it to make a project and enter the challenge and then Desire will send you the next image. I love doing these kinds of challenges. It's fun to get new images especially when they are free! I joined two sets, the image from DigiStamps4Joy and the Merry Christmas sentiment frame from JustYolie. The paper is also new to me. It's from Close to My Heart and I won it as a blog candy before Christmas. I hadn't even opened the package yet so I decided it was time. I layered all the background papers with dark gray paper. The image and sentiment was cut with Spellbinders circles and backed with scalloped circles. The red background is embossed with an embossing folder from Sizzix called Holly Swirls. And I followed through with my second New Year's resolution that I would finish the inside of the cards too. So I now have 7 Christmas cards completely ready for the 2014 Christmas season. Yeah me! Here are all the cards that I made today.
