The race is on! We've got just shy of two weeks left until Christmas. Are you starting to feel frantic yet about getting those Christmas projects finished? I sure am -- ha ha! If you, like me, need constant inspiration to help you across the finish line, well, you've come to just the right place today! Our designers have been crafting away like happy little elves. AND...you can find still more inspiration today over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge where we are happily sponsoring this week. The theme of their challenge this week is "Anything Goes," just as long as it's Christmas-related. Perfect! :-)
It's Wednesday and that means that we have another lovely creation from our December Guest Designer - Kathleen Benedict! If you remember last week Kathleen used Baked With Love for her card. Well, this week she is keeping with the baking theme and she made gingerbread! Well, maybe she has gingerbread cookies at home, but what she is sharing with us is her card using Gingerbread Holidays. Isn't it just yummy!!??
Those little gingerbread kids look like they are going to run right off her card!
Kathleen shared a little more about herself:
My favorite paper craft is cards. I really haven't gotten into other projects. I guess I am happy where I am! My
top go to craft items are the dp that I use to start my cards and I
design them around that. I love using little embellies, and ribbon or
buttons to dress up the cards.
You can find more of Kathleen's creations by visiting her Splitcoast Stampers Gallery.Be sure to stop by and visit her - she would love it!!
Come back next Wednesday to see what Kathleen has up her sleeve.....
Christmas is coming, and you want to make room for new goodies, right? Well, joining the challenge this week over at the Clear It Out Challenge Blog can give you a hand with that! The theme this week is "Anything Goes" plus you have to use something from your craft stash. This challenge is an all-time favorite of mine, because I tend to hoard my supplies, especially my patterned papers, and this challenge pushes me to dig deep and use some of it up! Our teamies have dug into their stashes, and crafted some fun things to share with you today. Aren't these gorgeous?!?
