Welcome everyone to our first Challenge of 2010! Are you all ready? Okay first off a few changes this year. You will be required to complete 5 cards for each challenge as usual, however this year I am also adding another (optional) element. I will be adding a 3D item to the mix. So you will complete your 5 cards plus to get additional entries into the random draws you can also complete any number of 3D items of your choice...they just have to have a Christmas theme to them. I am doing this more for myself, as I found this year I wish I had some boxes/bags around to fill with chocolates to give a few people here and there throughout the holidays. Also, this year I have decided instead of doing a monthly random draw I will be doing a random draw every 3 months for a $25 gift card for an online store of your choice. So I will add up all your entries from the previous 3 months and draw from those. So, you will get one entry for each set of 5 cards made and for each 3D item made during the 3 month period. Make sense? I hope so.
Okay onto this month challenge. I have recently fell in love with the Easel Card. So this months Challenge will be to complete 5(different or the same, your choice) Easel Cards. All entries must be received by 12:00pm MST January 31st. You can either leave a comment with a link to your entry on this post or email me a photo of your 5 cards. Plus leave me a comment or email a photo of your 3D item or items. If anyone has any questions please do let me know.
Okay, so here are my samples for this months challenge. I could not get a good photo of the group, so you are stuck with individual photos.
I am pretty happy with the way these turned out. A few of them I like more than the others, but they all came out okay. I do have a 3D item, but don't have a pic of it yet. I will try and get it up in the next few days...as I am working all weekend...but I wanted to get this post up on time! ;0)
If anyone has any questions just let me know. Now have fun and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this month.
