I am so excited to be sharing with you the card for Day 24.
I hope that by the end of tomorrow I will be all caught back up with the month of posts, so that I can start November with a new challenge and series.
For this card I decided that I would play along with Christmas Card Challenges. The challenge over there is "Anything Goes".
So I thought that I would visit my Christmas Scrap Box for the pieces for this card. I couldn't be happier with the way that this card turned out, and to think that it was made out of all scraps.
I did also create 4 of these cards. Each is coloured slightly different (placement of colours are different) and the paper colours, and the colour of the wording is different too. Love starting my stash again for next Christmas
Additionally...There is some very exciting news that I haven't shared with you on here yet.
I have been asked to join the DESIGN TEAM over at Christmas Card Challenges.
(For my bio and for all of the new members of the team please click on the link). I am so excited to be part of this amazing team, and I cannot wait to play along with the challenges with all of you!
I'm so excited for this new adventure!!
Play along with the challenges with us over at Christmas Card Challenges!
