Oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy! December has arrived!! I'm so not ready! My Christmas cards are not even close to being done! But thanks to Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, I do have a very good start on them. All that as a shameless promotion of CHNCC2's newest challenge that start today! As always, it is Anything (Christmas-related) Goes! And our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps is offering 7 images: winner's choice. Here is my card for your inspiration:Shopping Our Stash challenge to create a background using the Bargello Technique. I've never given this a try before and as I knew I had a bunch of thin paper strips that needed using up, I decided to go for it. It's hard to see it in the picture of the finished card, so I took a picture before I added the focal panel and embellishments.
CHNCC2 blog to see what the rest of the DT has created. Then get inky and play along with us; it's time to finish up those Christmas cards!
