What a wonderful selection of Christmas cards you entered for last week's challenge - it's a pleasure for me to visit your blogs and see what you have been up to - the only trouble is that the more beautiful cards I see, the more I see stamps, digital images, papers etc that need to go on my wishlist! Thank you for your willingness to join in - it is because of the success of this challenge blog that even more sponsors have come on board to support it - I am very grateful to all the sponsors - please take a moment or two to look down the sidebar and go to their websites and support them by purchasing from them. I still have one or two more sponsors' buttons to add to the sidebar, so 'watch this space'.
Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winners of challenge 107. There were, of course, three opportunities to win a prize.
The first prize winner:
Congratulations, Katie. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can arrange for you to receive your $21 certificate from Bugaboo Stamps.
or use something that was free
This is my first card using a recycled gift card and some leaves from a Christmas cracker - you can read more about it here on My Crafty Outlook:
I've been using up lots of old cards and bits and pieces so there are lots more examples of creating with recycled elements on My Crafty Outlook.
Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please show any Christmas card on which you've used something recycled or something that was free to you. This is a good opportunity to make a start on cards for next Christmas - I know that some of you have already started to do this. If you didn't do this last year and were in a panic towards Christmas, why not make a New Year's resolution to make Christmas cards throughout the year?
