Christmas Card Using NEW CTMH Snowhaven Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy and Artiste Cartridges

DS4J Christmas Challenge - FREE Digi Each Monthly

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I have been creating a lot of cards lately.  I still have a birthday card to create for my step son.  I have a much bigger challenge creating for the men in my life.  LOL!  It is much easier to create for all the women.  I guess most women probably feel that way.  
This is my 7th Christmas card that I have created this year; so far.  I love having a monthly Christmas challenge; so I can get a head start on my cards.  I really don't like waiting till the last minute every year; but it seems it happens a lot.  DS4J provides you with a FREE digital stamp each month when you enter.  All you have to do is email Desire; as noted on the website.  Once you have entered one challenge; then you will automatically get the next month FREE.  What a fabulous way to build your digi stash; as well as complete those Christmas cards ahead of time.

CTMH has a new Annual Idea book coming out August 1st; and we have nine fabulous papers; plus a lot of the Fundamental Paper sets to match all our cardstock.  We have several card kits; 8 scrapbook kits; 4 new Embossing folders and 5 new colors of cardstock, ink and reinkers; plus so much more!  I love all the new colors.  I have used one of the Christmas colors; that also has papers that will work for other occasions as well.  I hope you enjoy my Christmas Easel card.  Look for the tutorial on the tabs above.


This was free for July in the 2014 Christmas Challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy
FREE Digi each month when you play along with this Christmas challenge.
