Xmas challenge

I started making Xmas cards a month or so ago. I am a big fan of challenge blogs (as you may be able to tell) so this week I decided to challenge myself. My first challenge was to make a Christmas card only using the traditional colours of red, green and gold . Normally my cards are what I consider to be non traditional in both colour and theme.

When I had finished the card I realised that I didn't have a gold sentiment small enough to fit, so I put the plaque on any way and will have to go shopping (ohhh noooooo) again for something to go there. This one has 3 papers, 2 ribbons and 1 peel off.

For this next one one, I challenged myself to make a Christmas card for a man. I always have trouble coming up with ideas for male cards so this one was a thoughy.

The last card is the sort that I prefer. Its my version of a monotone. The challenge was to stick to one colour and silver. The paper I used is from HOTP and I have had it for years. I'm still working on stash that I bought 5 years ago. I really need to stop shopping for stash, but I can't help it!!


  1. You have done a fab job ... I might come back and use your challenges for a few of mine if that is OK ... unless coz you have started sooooo early ... you wanna make mine too *LOL*

  2. Very pretty cards! I love that each one has a great layout too!
