Let's have a little fun this year. The objective of the challenge is to get your Christmas cards made throughout the year. The themes are meant to be inspirational and broad enough to allow a lot of creative expression.
I will be posting my cards the first of the month along with suggestions and encouragement to participate in the challenge. Join as many months as you want.
If you participate, please add a comment to the post for the month you are joining including a link to your card so others can be inspired. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations. Become a follower of my blog if you want to be notified of my postings.
