Right now, it is time to submit my card for this month's Progressive Christmas Challenge taking place over at DigiStamps4Joy. One more card to add to the Christmas Card Pot to help me avoid the yearly Christmas Card Panic, and thankfully this month, it looks like I'm going to achieve my goal of adding two cards. In fact, if I've counted correctly, this is number three. It helps to make up for the lack in previous months.
Christmas Card Count to date: 13
Here is the DS4J image we get to use this month:
...and here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:
Digital Image Details:
- Santa's Letter: If you aren't part of the progressive challenge and would like to purchase it so that you can join in, click HERE or on the watermark above to find it in the DS4J store.
- This image has been coloured in with Copic Markers. Once again in hindsight, I really shouldn't have coloured the base of the snowglobe red. I forgot I was going to fussy cut the image. I keep doing this for some reason.
- The great sentiment on the front is from the fabulous Create With TLC. Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.
- The red ribbon is a snippet from my stash. Probably Osprey brand.
- The small dots on the white cardstock were created with a Goosebumpz embossing folder using my wonderful Big Shot machine.
- One I whipped up. Sorry it is a bit blurry. Not one of the six pictures I took, had the writing in focus.
- Card base: Michael's Recollection's cardstock, red.
- Image and sentiment bases, along with embossed strips: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
- Designer Paper: Recollection's Bright Christmas paper pad.

If you are interested in joining the DS4J progressive Christmas card challenge you will need to contact Desíre (her details are at the bottom of the post). I've linked the badge above to take you to that post.
Well, one more card is finally done. Soon it will be time to reveal the list of people who earned the paper for June in the 12 Months of Christmas link up. My goodness, how time flies! Don't forget you can jump in and add your own holiday cards to it as well. Click HERE for all the details. You still have a little over four days to link up your two cards for June in order to get your free paper for the month.
Well, it is time to move on. Three more progressive challenges and a DT post or two to get done by the end of the month! Hopefully, I'll get at least one more in later today. Then there is the DT Delight post this Sunday over at the Path of Positivity and of course the latest sneak peek over at Creative Bug on the Loose on Saturday. Plus, I need to be working on putting together a kit for an upcoming challenge I am sponsoring, plus, plus, plus...hey wait a second, this is sounding a lot like the end of last month's DS4J post. I sense a pattern to my life developing. Hmmmm.....
Until next time,
