I hope you've all had a wondrous Christmas and are looking forward to a healthy and happy 2015!
My big surprise in December was being asked by Hazel to join her design team for her Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge and of course I said YES! This is a monthly challenge where the theme is always ANYTHING GOES, and the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.
For my first DT card I have used Bugaboo's Deer Duo coloured in with Copics. I have made a simple layered background using freebie papers from a magazine and gold mirri card. The sentiment was done on my PC.
Hazel also runs a weekly Christmas challenge with a different them each week, starting on Saturday mornings. You can find that challenge here
And there's more! I don't know how she finds the time but Hazel also runs another monthly challenge called Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper challenge , again ANYTHING GOES as long your card is covered with patterned paper. And who hasn't got loads of patterned paper?!
Now it's over to you. I didn't make anywhere near enough Christmas cards in 2014 and ended up buying some....BAD CRAFTER!!! So I'm determined to get enough done for all my family and friends this year. Starting in January feels fabulous!
