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.
