A Christmas Challenge

I have come across a couple of blogs lately that have Christmas challenges, now you might think that it is too early to be doing Christmas cards in February.  I thought the same until I realised that if I made a card or two a week I would have all my Christmas cards finished ready to post by the end of November.  As well as making the cards I am addressing the envelopes and putting the card inside that way there is an even better chance that the people on my Christmas mailing list will actually see a card this year - many missed out last year because Christmas crept up on me all too fast.

This is my first entry in the Merry Monday Challenge, and I thought it was a good way to feature the DSP from this year's catalogue.  I also left it a bit late to enter the challenge so wanted a nice quick card with not too much stamping, and that I achieved nicely!  The stamped sentiment is from Four the Holidays, and I have blinged the card up a bit with a Red Glimmer Paper ornament punched with the ornament punch.  I took this photo and decided it needed something else to give it a bit of a lift, so ...

I added a small bow from the 1/8" Old Olive ribbon which I attached with a Glue Dot, and I may add a couple of rhinestones on the DSP ornaments.  Now to write the envelope and tick the first name off my Christmas Card List!!!

I am going to try and join in each week with this challenge and get my Christmas Card stack built up over the year ... wish me luck!

Happy Stamping


  1. Great way to showcase the paper Monique! Love the blinged ornament. Thanks for joining me at Merry Monday.

  2. That bow you added to the ornament, just makes the card pop, Monique. I like this paper and some of the patterns are quiet versatile and can be used for non christmassy things too.


I love reading your comments, thanks for taking the time to write them.
