{ August Happiness Giveaway Challenge }

**This post will remain at the top until the deadline...please scroll down for new posts**

Yup, it's that time again. Are you ready for another challenge?

This month will be a different Challenge in that it is going to be a Theme Challenge. I know it is August, but I am starting to think about my Christmas cards...that's right, I said Christmas. For this month I want to see your best Christmas creation using one of your favorite or newest Christmas stamps! It can be anything...card, tag, 3d item...whatever you like, but it must be a Christmas creation!

What are you playing for? Well...I have decided to do some purging of my stamproom. I have a brand new 'On Board Art Journal' from SU and I will include a mixture of ribbons and papers that I have. I will post a pic next week after we get back from our camping trip this week. I will also do up my own sample next week as well.

This one will be one entry per person and the deadline is August 31st @ 9:00pm MST. The winner will be announced Sept 1st.

Good luck and I can't wait to see all those Christmas creations!

Hi Tracy!

I made this card this morning using a stamped sentiment and stamping as decoration. If you'd prefer a stamped image let me know as there's a card I made a few days ago that I could use instead :)

Here is my entry for this month's contest! I just got this stamp at my local Craft Warehouse 4 days ago. I like the simplicity of the card because it doesn't over take the sentiment. I'm linking to SCS (mom2kjs) this time because it isn't on my blog.

I am going to kill to birds with one stone and since I just made this card I can use it for your challenge too. It fits the requirements. So here it is:
My Christmas Card

The round stamp is a darling one I recently purchased from Aud Designs!

Here is my unconventional use of black and white for a Christmas card. My inspiration came from the shooting star and of course, my A.muse stamp called Bethehem.

Hey Tracy! Here's a little something I made for with your challenge in mind. I used Mam Dini's sketch for this Christmas design.
