Lots of Christmas Challenges

Hi there,

I am determined to get at least 5 Christmas cards made each month so I am not so slammed at the end of the year with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas cards with barely a breath before the Valentines are due.

I have two cards for four challenges, two each.

This card is inspired by Muse: Christmas Visions. and  Merry Monday .  The Merry Monday Theme is Snow and Chriss's Muse card is here:


                                                          

Chriss' repeated stamps inspired my card along with the snow element from Merry Monday.




My second card is inspired by Watercooler Wednesday - All about Christmas, and The Merry Christmas Challenge   anything goes + Christmas with optional element Ornament- both are new challenges to me.

                                   Grab It



Thanks for stopping by!

Love the ombre snowflake card, but then I saw the tree ornament & I gasped! You're amazing, Cat--always coming up with something creative & wonderful!

Just love both cards, Cat! The snowflake resist looks great in the blue ombré & I love the sweet tag with the mini tree on card two!! So glad to see your snowflakes at MM this week!!

Hi Cat, you've created two lovely cards. I especially love the clean and simple lines of the one with the hanging ornament. The twine, the ornament and the die-cut of the tree with the glittery teal behind--stunning. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Love the beautifully stamped pattern of your snowflakes and the ombré ink effect. Those sequins add a gorgeous sparkle, too! Your ornament card is so sweet and a great CAS design!

Love your snowflake card and how perfectly you created that 'stamped all around' look. I'm still trying to perfect that technique. lol Your 2nd card is so sweet!

Welcome to this weeks "All About Christmas" challenge week at Watercooler Wednesday and for sharing your lovely cards. I love the CAS design of your Christmas ornament card. The ombre card is beautiful too. I'd admire the task you've set for yourself with the 15 cards a month, but it looks like you'll be well on your way. Awesome!

Good idea on making the Christmas all year - I try to do the same, but some months are harder than others. Your snowflake card is gorgeous. LOVE the blue background.
