This is the first time I have participated in the Christmas Card Club and I am putting a picture out to show what I made. The other participants have published their cards to their blogs since July 3 with today being a deadline day and the start of a new fortnight challenge. This is a challenge where a member sets the rules as to what the requirements that fortnight are and this time Pinky decided that everyone should have a bear on their card. If you are interested in seeing this fortnights cards there is a list of everyone's names with links on my side bar that all you have to do is click on a name and it will take you to each of the participants blog! When Keryn told me about the club I thought it sounded like an awesome way to get a head start on getting cards ready for this next Christmas so if you are interested in playing in the club contact anyone on the list and they will tell you how to get started.
I also decided to use this for the Summer of Color entry this week because the color this week is RED! I love traditional Christmas colors and luckily red is one of them. If you would like to know more about the Summer of Color...there are a few more weeks left, come play with us...click on the link on the side bar and go to Twinkle Twinkle and check it out!
Here is the card I made:
Believe it or not I didn't have a single Christmas Bear image...I don't do bears much. Keryn turned me on to the Inger Harding blog where she has free images, stuff you can buy, and awesome things to look at. The image of the girl AND the bear is called "waiting for Santa to come" and the sentiment wreath are two of her free images. Click on the link and check it out!
