I'd like to take a minute to thank everyone who has joined us this year. I can't believe how quickly time has passed, but we're at the end of this term. We've been truly inspired by your cards, and your participation and we hope that you will continue to grace us with your cards in the upcoming year. Now, onto this weeks challenge. This week Peggy has created another fabulous sketch for us to use. Please keep in mind that the challenges each week are optional. The idea is just to help you create a Christmas card each week so that you'll have a good stack finished by the time December rolls around. Here is Peggy's sketch.
Our last guest designer for this year is Barb. Here is a bit about her, in her own words.
Hello everyone, my name is Barb. I have been married for 25 years, to a very patient man and we have two beautiful daughters who also like to scrap and make cards. We share our home with 2 cockatiels, and a very spoiled little doggie named Maxwell William. I have had a love affair with paper since I was a young girl, so it was no surprise to anyone when I started scrapbooking. Eventually, I moved on to digital scrapping, but found that I really missed my paper. So three years ago, I began card crafting and I LOVE it! I am thrilled to be chosen as a Guest Designer for Sparkle’s Christmas Card Challenge. I really like the idea of creating Christmas cards all year. I turn on Christmas music in my studio, light a Christmas-y scented candle to help set the mood and then I create away!
Here is Barb's beautiful card, based on the sketch.
And here are the rest of the designers cards for this week.
Please link directly to the blog post or gallery page where we can view/comment on your creation and not just the generic link to your blog. Generic blog links will be disabled or deleted. To get the full URL, click the title of your blog post (which will load a page that has just that post on it), then copy and paste the URL.
Don't forget to post a comment so we know you added a card! If you are uploading to an online gallery such as Splitcoast, please use the tag SCCC52, so that we can all enjoy your cards.
We hope you'll be as inspired by us as we are by you, and join us for this last challenge of the 2010 year. There are only a couple weeks left until Christmas is upon us!
