Hello there! I’m so happy you could join me today for this fun event that I’ve been looking forward to bringing you. This is the second year I’m doing the 12 Cards for Christmas. Last year was so fun, so I thought I’d do it again!
Just to let you all know what’s happening, in case you missed it, every hour on the hour I’ll be posting one brand new Christmas card, starting now at 8:00 am (EST) and the last one will be posted at 7:00 pm (EST). I’ll be sharing cards made in all kinds of styles to make sure there’s something for everyone.
There is a prize package up for grabs for one lucky commenter. Here’s the deal. You can comment once on each post which means you have 12 chances to get your name into the drawing.
Wanna see the prize? well, of course you do! Take a look!…………
Oh, wait! You can’t! Because there’s no photo! And that, my friend, is because you can’t take a photo of something that isn’t made yet! Hee! have I piqued your interest? I have decided that for today’s prize I would offer to make a custom paper crafting kit for the winner, valued at $20, sort of like the smaller ones found in my shop. Only YOU get to tell me what you want! You get to choose the theme and color scheme of your prize kit. Whether it be Christmas or another holiday or event, traveling, kids, pets, family, etc. Or it could be no particular theme at all. And in your favorite colors too! I thought it might make more sense for the winner to be able to choose what they’d like to have instead of me choosing everything. So take a look at the kits to get an idea of the kinds of kits I design and get your ideas flowing for what you’d like if you’re the winner! OK?
You have until Monday morning to leave your comments and I’ll pick a winner then!
Just a note: All of the cards I’m sharing today will be posted on my Etsy shop as I get the chance to post them. I hope to work on that throughout the day as the posts go up. But if there is one in particular that you really would like to have, just let me know and I’ll reserve it for you.
Ready to meet the first card? Well, alrighty then! Here goes!
This first one is bold and graphic in design with a bright color scheme and bold black zig-zags. A fun chipboard ornament finishes it off in style!
This card encourages us to “Eat, drink, and be merry” which makes me think of all the parties and get-togethers we have this time of year. So, for this first post I’d like you to tell me about a memorable Christmas party you have attended in the past, or maybe one you are really looking forward to attending. Or maybe one you’re dreading, like the office party maybe? Hee! I’d like to hear about your festive parties, banquets, fiestas, soirees, shindigs, and everything in between.
One Christmas party I remember was the work party one year where we sang the 12 Days of Christmas and every table had to take a turn singing a verse. By the end there were some funny antics going on as people started acting it out as well. Funny!
