Colourful Christmas

Just Us Girls Colour Challenge

Good Day

I am super excited. I have finished my first packet of cards for our Christmas market in a about 5 weeks time. Yes, I am slow, but I have put out the next two weeks to do all my Christmas cards, so hopefully I can do a few more. I was inspired by two challenges. First, The Sisterhood of Crafter's challenge to make a project without any stamps - no rubber or digital. Though if you look at their creations will will never say that there are no stamps used. For some it is quite easy, but I tend to think about an image when I make a card. Then on Saturday The Just us Girls challenge us on making a rainbow colour project. Two years ago I made Christmas cards with these multicoloured rainbow paper with silhouettes on it and there were some off cuts left. The images are from Glue Dots Magic Motifs and I used a purple or blue glitter on it. The sentiment in Afrikaans - Merry Christmas - is a peel-off, that I bought recently.  Very simple, but I like the paper!

Have a blessed day!
