COMMENTING...

If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hi everyone!


Just wanting to wish everyone a wonderfully Merry Christmas from Lesley and I.  Looking forward to seeing any last minute cards you manage to get in before the end of the month that follow the criteria of the challenge.  And just a reminder that while we always love seeing your work, cards/projects do need to meet the challenge criteria of that month to be eligible for the prize!


These were a few last minute ones I whipped up today with some leftovers from the Three Bugs in a Rug North Pole line!  Made for some easy cards for sure!  And the best part is that they all have little Santas on them for the challenge too!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Colleen and Lesley

Can you believe it's now less than a week away?  Tis the season to be crazily busy and we apologize for the delay in the DT annoucement as a result.  We've had trouble contacting people through their card posts, so we're announcing the team here and I'm asking if you could please contact me (Colleen) at col12@hotmail so that I can send you some details!

November Winner!

Happy December!  Before I get to November's winner I just want to let everyone know that going forward starting with November's winner, instead of stamp sets I'm going to be giving away gift certificates to an online stamp company.  I'm doing this for a couple of reasons: 1. I'm out of stamp sets.  I usually go to LSS garage sales and find brand new SU sets that haven't been touched but with a couple of the LSS closing around here they are getting harder to find.  2. The postage to our international participants is really expensive and I want them to be able to win a prize so this way they will get stamps too.

Now...on to the November winner....38. Nicky!!!!  You will receive a $15 gift certificate to Bugaboo Stamps.  Please send your email address to sunifla1@comcast.net.  Thanks and congrats!

December Challenge!

So...it's finally here...did you get all your Christmas cards made this year?  Well if you need just a little bit more inspiration here is our last challenge for the year.  Include either an image of Santa or the word Santa on your card.

Check out what the design team made...what a way to end the year!


























*Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of DECEMBER! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)

This month the RAK is another great stamp set!

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks!

***Also, if at least 20 people create 5 cards I will pick a second winner!***

We can't wait and see what you create this month! Have fun!
