Lesley from Freshly Made Sketches has a wonderful challenge on her blog called Merry Monday. It is a challenge to make a Christmas card each week so that by December you will have a nice little stash of cards to send out. This challenge started on the 2nd of January and I thought it was a fantastic idea because I was short a few cards last year and ran out of time and energy to make more. I just couldn’t make myself start though, I was really “over” christmas card making.
Well I decided to begin Lesley’s challenge this week. She is up to week 16! It’s hard to believe we are that far into the year already. I am going to try to make 1 Christmas card a week along with her. (We’ll have to see how that goes).
I put my “snowflakes” (actually the star and button) on the opposite side to the sketch.
I didn’t have any copics last year when I made a few cards with this set, so I was keen to see how it would turn out. Not too bad. I am sure I will make more cards with it using different colour combos and Lesley’s sketches during the year.
Stamps : Tidings of Joy
Card : crumb cake, bashful blue, x-press it, ret. dsp
Ink : memento black, crumb cake
Other : copics, button (ret), square punch, dazzling diamonds
If I manage to keep up with this Christmas card challenge I will have over 30 cards by December. A goal worth striving for I think :)
