This Week's Challenge

A huge thank you to all you who entered their beautiful Christmas cards last week.  I know your friends and families will be thrill to receive such master pieces.  If they only knew how much work and love goes into our handmade cards, they would appreciate them even more.

I needed a very quick card to send with a package I was mailing out.  The wonderful dies from Cheery Lynn (candle die) and Memory Box (star) came to my rescue! 

So, the challenge for  you this week is to create a quick Christmas card, something that does not take long, perhaps using dies or stamps. 

Here is what you need to do for Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #14:

■ Create a quick Christmas card

■ Any Thing Goes

You will have until next Thursday (December 22) morning 6:00 AM EST to link your project. You can enter more than once. A winner will be chosen from the Random Drawing for week #14 challenge and will be announced Friday December 23. This winner will win a 2 Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.

The winner will also be entered in the end of the year $100 gift certificate drawing which will be drawn on  December 30.  (There will not be a challenge for next week as we all will be rushing to finalize our Christmas preparations for our family get-togethers.
Below are the guidelines:

1. You must have a blog or post to the SCS gallery.

2. Post your challenge card to your blog.

3. Or if you are posting to the SCS gallery, you will need to use a special code to tag your card to the challenge. This week's code is JG1215 and needs to be posted with the challenge.

4. Link your card/project to the Blue Inlinkz icon listed at the bottom of the challenge.

Important, please have a direct link to your challenge card and not to your blog address.

Comments always appreciated. I love seeing your cards! Thanks so much for playing!!
