Circles for Christmas

It has been brutally hot where I live for the past week so I thought a Christmas card was in order for the CIRCLES challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week. 

My mojo did not come back from our vacation but it better come back in the next few days because I am not liking my creations this week.  Mind you it could well be that I rushed to get things completed after my guests left.  OK, so that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.

You can create any card with circles for our challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week as long as you make it vintage, shabby chic or primitive.  You can enter up to three cards and one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge.  The Design Team will select one entry as their Top Pick and that creator will receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

While you are checking out the wonderful inspiration from our designers, make sure you also take a look at the great tutorial called Shiny Metal to Rusty Metal provided by Renee Matarese, our Feature Artist.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Crimbo Crackers - Anything Christmas Goes
Paper Play - Use a Die
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Dies
Holly Jolly Christmas - Dies Cuts & Punches

  7. A wonderful Christmas card Cec. You have used a great Santa as the main image and there is such wonderful detail on your card. We all loose our Mojo - it happens to all of us and something we create may not seem right to us but to someone else it will be a winner! :) I think you card is lovely! Thanks for joining us at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges, we hope to see you back soon. Regards Meighan

  8. Love the Santa, he is gorgeous and your design is also. I am loving that cutwork die!
    I always feel like that after taking time away, seems like I cannot get things back in gear.
    Have a wonderful weekend.


I love to hear what you think about my work, so please leave me a comment.
