Wow! how this year is going so quickly - March already and we're on challenge 10!
Before I tell you about today's challenge, I want to say a big THANK YOU to all who have entered into the spirit of this challenge blog and produced such lovely cards. You will all be streets ahead of others when we get towards Christmas 2011. I loved seeing all the different sentiments for challenge 9.
If you haven't yet started your Christmas cards, why not do so with today's challenge - you know it makes sense.
On to CHNC challenge 10 then - I'd like you to incorporate some embossing on to your card - this can be dry embossing using a lightbox or embossing plates or folders, or why not stamp and use some wet embossing - the choice is yours. You can even use something that is ready embossed if you want to.
This is a prize week -as it is the first Saturday in the month there will be a prize for the randomly selected winner - a Papermania snowflakes embossing folder and a Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller clear Snowman stamp.
I've used one of these embossing folders and stamp on my card for this challenge (the winner will get unopened products, not the ones that I've used - lol!).
You can see more details of my card on my regular crafting blog My Crafty Outlook here.
And it seems that great minds have thought alike again, as there is another Christmas challenge this week asking for embossing to be used - Bah! humbug challenge 9. Having prepared what my challenge 10 was going to be I was so surprised to see that Bah! humbug are doing the same this week. So I'm linking my card for that challenge - you could do the same with yours. It's good to support other challenge blogs that are helping us to make Christmas cards throughout the year. And today's Die cut dreams Christmas 56 is 'inspired by a song' - so this is for 'Frosty the snowman'. It's also being linked for Winter wonderland: snowflakes.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 11 March. Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.
Remember, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week I'd like you to use some embossing.
You can enter as many times as you wish and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.
A new challenge will be set on 12 March.
Please add your link to inlinkz. If by any chance it disappears, please leave a comment with the link to your blog post and I will make sure it is added.
If you haven't done so already, please become a follower and grab my bright pink button to post on your sidebar and help continue to spread the word about this new challenge blog - thank you.
I look forward to seeing your creations.
