December Design Challenge Cards - Merry Christmas Everyone!

Well, here we are - Christmas day!  Merry Christmas to everyone.  I hope Santa has been good to you all :)  I'll find out in a bit ;)

Here was the design challenge sketch and colors:

This first card is mine.  I think when I was making the sketch, I was thinking of a Christmas ornament.  How can you not, right?  Well, I was trying to use stamps/sets I haven't used before.  I don't care for the Build-a-Bear bears, but loved the Christmas accessory stamps.  I've been wanting to use it since I got it!  I just got this adorable little polar bear stamp and thought it would be the perfect match to the tree and sentiment.  I din't want to use too much of the colors on him and the tree - just added some marker to the hearts and scarf.

Next, we have Michelle's beautiful card.  Again, she did such a great job!  I love the sentiment and then the matching ornament hanging below with that great string.  She also spritzed the card to get rid of a lot of white area.  I just love this card - very merry indeed!  What a joy it is to receive a Michelle Arthur card :)

Thanks for looking and I wish you all a very merry day and a Happy New Year!  Michelle, Debbie, and I will be back with new challenges next month.  Please join us!  We'd love for you to create with us.


  1. Oh, I did not manage to work on a card for this sketch, but my cards are created randomly in the colors:) It does not matter ....
