Christmas Card Challenges #42

We have a very easy Challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges, so I hope you join along.  It's "Anything Goes."   Yes, our challenges do have that "feature" every week, but this week, there's no inspiration photo or color challenge, so you're on your own.  Show us your beautiful creations.

This card was so fun to make that I made several to add to my stash.  I popped up the front panel using foam tape and also popped up the ornament.

Stop by the Christmas Card Challenges site to see what the other Designers created this week for your inspiration.

We also have a Design Team Call going on right now.  The term runs for 6 months (December through May).  What a great way to get a head start on your Christmas/holiday cards for 2017.  Click here for more information.  The deadline to apply is Friday, October 7.

Yes, I've been absent for nearly 3 months.  Life just "happens."  But, even though I may not always understand why things happen the way they do, I do know that God gives me the strength I need, when I need it, to get through each situation.

I do have to add "WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO?"  Yes, I am yelling that!! I can't believe we are near the end of September already. Which means I have to get cranking on my Christmas cards.

And what better way to get started than at Christmas Card Challenges.  The Challenge this week is a Color Challenge; although the only real rule is that you create a Christmas or holiday card.  I'm back with the Design Team and am looking forward to sharing my Christmas items with you the next several months.

I used an image from LOTV's Bumper Art Pad Set 29-Vintage Christmas (sadly, this, and others, are no longer available...oh, how I wish they'd bring them back).  I distressed all the pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage Photo.

I took a little bit of liberty with the colors, but they are close.

Check out what the other Design Team members created this week. It won't be long before we have to get these cards in the mail.
