How fun. I saw this opportunity in the nick of time (or, in honor of the season maybe I should say the Nicholas of time?!) And just made it in as #424. (Thanks, Beccy. You are always so generous!)

Day 21 - "S"

It's another easy letter today - there are lots of great "S" words that relate to the holidays, including snow, for those in the northern hemisphere, or sunshine, for those in the south. Even though I live in Australia, where there isn't a hint of snow to be seen at this time of year, I've still gone with snowflakes. Mostly because of these gorgeous stickers that my Mum-in-law sent me last year... how could I resist?


YOUR TURN: Create a card using the letter "S" as your prompt.

I must admit, I very briefly considered teaching myself how to quill. And you do have a digi with ink and a quill, or any of the feathers in the feather set could be used as a quill to write Santa a letter. I also considered adding some Christmas decorations to Nell's quaint little cottage. Your group of snowmen that spell JOLLY would make a fine quintuplet, too. What a quintessential challenge you have given us. It's really quite a lot of fun. Okay. I'll quit now. Hugs, Debi

Day 20 - "R"

Santa's reindeer are easily the hardest working critters come Christmas Eve. Along with cookies and milk for Santa, we always make sure to leave out a few juicy carrots and a big bowl of water for his hard-working team.


YOUR TURN: Create a card using the letter "R" as your prompt.

Outrageously, overwhelming,[these are good things] Oval-Shaped card - loving it!

Day 19 - "Q"

It's another hard one today... the letter "Q".
I decided to use up some scraps of Christmas paper to created a quilted background for my card. It was either that, or quickly acquire some quilling skills!

PERFECT poinsettias Beccy!
LOVE your colouring and design - WOW - so ELEGANT!
I remember our 1st trip to FNQ and we just HAD to take photos in front of HUGE poinsettia bushes. After only seeing them in "pot" size every Christmas it was almost magical :)

Day 18 - Sketch Challenge

It's time to slip in an extra challenge to help round out our month. This time I've drawn up a very basic sketch for you to interpret. Feel free to turn it, twist it or shake it up until you have a design you're happy with.
