Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge 2010




I feel so far ahead of the game today, since I completed the first month of Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge and added 5 cards to the stash! I also used up some of my materials, which makes me even happier. The quicker I use it, the quicker I can replenish :) This month's challenge was to make easel cards and a 3-d project.

I chose to use these cute little elf images that I received as a RAK (sorry I don't remember when or from whom they came). They are colored with Bic Mark-It markers and the snowballs are puffed up with puffy paint. The papers are Chatterbox Holiday Sprinkles and the card stock colors are Real Red, Certainly Celery and Basic Black. I need to install the Photoshop Elements that I got for Christmas so I can edit the photos more effectively!

My 3-d project is this simple little hexagonal box which is decorated with the same papers. The ribbon is from my stash and on the box it acts like a little hanger for the box if you wanted to hang it on the tree filled with treats. Can I mention how hard it is to cut hexagons, though? Yikes! That's why there are only two layers on top...

I'm off to finish some other things before going out tonight. Adult conversation! Food I don't have to share! Ordering only for myself!! Imagine...

Thanks for looking!
