Hello everyone and welcome! Can you believe it is October! Yes, there is no getting away from it, the nights are drawing in, specially up here in Scotland, very soon it will be dark already around 4 o'clock. But October does not only mean shorter days and Halloween, it also means Christmas is less than 3 months away....
Anyway, the theme at Countryview Challenges is Sparkle and Shine. So the moment I saw the theme I knew this would be the perfect chance to start on my Christmas cards.
I started by cutting a piece of strong white card to 3.75 by 5.75 " and coloured by blending Chipped Sapphire all around it. I then used the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil and more Chipped Sapphire to do some stenciling at the top and the bottom.
Next I gathered the other elements I wanted to add:
HERE and of course there is some amazing further examples to the theme, including more Christmas cards, from the rest of the team.
Thank you for visiting, and this being the first of the months, I will be back with another project a little later.
