DCM and Fab's Christmas Challenge

Hi folks. I have a double whammy today, let me start with the DCM challenge which was to make a quick card. Well I did this one last night and I actually timed myself. It took 15 minutes! Is that quick enough? The reason it was so quick to make is that I used two of the ready couloured bonus images from the Christmas Charmed Download collection. All I had to do was print cut and stick then add the finishing touches that made it my own. I really like doing holes for the stars/snowflakes because the light gets right behind them and looks great IRL.



The second challenge was from Fabrizio's blog. He's been helping us get organised early for Christmas by challenging us to make a Christmas card by the 25th of each month and if you're feeling like a nutter you match the number of cards to the number of the month. So as I am a bit of a nutter and the month the challenge was set was number 5 I've made five cards. I've made them throughout the month but I thought I'd show them all in one go (Fab you've already seen the reindeer one because I showed you it before I decided to show them all together - but I've







Oops! That makes 6 altogether! Do I get a gold star Fab?

Gorgeous cards Louise ! I can't pick a favouite I like them all. Now you've made one too many as the nutter option for May was 5 cards. Do you want me to consider one card to be carried over for the June challenge ? In the meantime I'll put them all in the May gallery. Thanks for playing, the recipients of those cards in December will be over the moon...the cards are beautiful ! Fab X
