Christmas Cards in April!

OK, so it's the first again and reveal day for the Christmas Cards All Year Round blog!  I so need to catch up on some blogging, but we'll start with this!  I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be puttering with these throughout the year rather than doing them all at one time.  I feel ahead of myself in this department at least...

Here is the challenge for APRIL...

Since spring is here, make a Christmas card with at least ONE soft pastel color on it. (could be baby blue, soft pink, pale yellow or pale green).


This was a line of paper from Imaginisce that I HAD to have and then has never used, so it was fun to break into that!


This and the next two cards were done with papers from Basic Grey from this past season.  I added glitter to all of these - on the tree I popped up above, on the tops of the trees and houses in the card below and then all over the Slice Machine cut snowflake in the following card.



I used a light blue card base in this one and the one above as well for something a little different that my usual cream or white!


If you took my All Occasion Cards class in March, you'll recognize this design!  It was a quick one to do with some scraps!

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge).  If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks!


YOU NEED TO LET US KNOW IN THIS POST WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE 5 CARDS IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE MONTHLY PRIZE.

We hope you enjoy creating Christmas cards this month! Tell your friends about our blog and have them join in on the fun too!

Happy April Fool's!!
Cheers,
