Beat the Christmas Rush November 25th

Christmas Card Tally 55!
tri fold card
Woo hoo, here we are at our last Beat the Christmas Rush for 2104 and if you’ve been with me from January you won’t be panicking about getting all your cards done in time for posting. You weren’t? Oh dear! Let that be a lesson to you LOL – come back in January when we’ll be starting again on the countdown towards Christmas 2015!
My cards this month are made from a tri-fold template – they look complicated but really aren’t. If you’d like the tutorial I’ll put it on a page tab for you.

11 Nov Mrs AThank you to all those who linked up their fab cards last month. I picked this one by Mrs A as my favourite.
Isn’t this a super way to recycle old cards?
I am so going to do this in January. Smile

Join us for our final link in 2014? If not, have a wonderful Christmas and see you on January 25th.

The small print … please only link new cards. Up to 5 links allowed per person per month. Mention my blog in your post(s).  It’s not necessary, but I’ll be thrilled if you join my blog as a follower. If you miss a month it doesn't matter, come back next month … or the month after.

November sketch challenge

P1070091Hands up who’s wondering where October went!
Me, that’s for sure. Smile 

So time for a new sketch challenge … we made our annual pilgrimage to Pumpkin Cottage in Slindon and I had to photograph Michael clambering for the perfect pumpkin … the notice specifically asks that you don’t climb! Oops!

Sorry I’ve gone for bunting again – ! promise next month’s won’t have any!

My challenge to you is to use the sketch as the starting point for your scrapbook page then link me up to your blog, gallery or FB page, via the linky thingy below. Please be sure to link to my challenge in your post or gallery text box. I’ll choose my favourite and send the winner one of my crop kits you can see them on the page tab at the top of my blog.

Thank you for all the fab entries for last month’s sketch; so lovely to see some new people joining us, too. For my winner I have chosen this gorgeous autumnal page by Susibee, a loyal follower of my blog challenges.
