These are just fabulous. I've also been making multiples for Christmas as I find this is the easiest way when I leave it to the end to make them!

Day 16 - "O"

Oh dear me... "O" is another one of the those letters that's a little tricky when thinking of holiday card-making prompts. The first thing that came to my mind was ovals.


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

M is also for Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Vegetables - our dinner tonight. I do believe this challenge is alphabetically appetizing, too!
Love your multiple cards. These images would make an adorable matching or memory game for in a little one's Christmas stocking. OMG, Matching and memory both start with M! I may be going Mad. But I'm having so much fun losing my Mind.

Day 15 - "N"

I really enjoyed making this CAS style card and I love the end result, I may even make a few more since it was relatively quick and easy. If you haven't already invested in a bottle of puff paint then do yourself a favour and grab some the next time you're in a craft store. It works great for snow, beards, fur, little flowers, cream, frosting, etc., etc....


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

What a gorgeous card I love it. That Koala needs a bit of help. I think light have improved in the last few years we don't have the trouble we used to have. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Day 14 - "M"

Today we've arrived at the letter "M", which means we're now half way through the alphabet! Can you believe we've come so far already? I hope you're all managing to build up a nice little stack of holiday cards.
In order to give my collection a little boost, I've decided that my "M" word is going to be multiples. Generally, I don't like to make a lot of the same card because I get bored with repetition, but I find that if I use different colours and different shapes it's not so bad.


Here are the little images all coloured and mounted onto matching paper. In the photo below, you can see that I've made them up into simple holiday cards.


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

Love the use that the kanga has made of her pouch!

Day 13 - "L"

How many times have you unpacked your holiday decorations only to find your lights in a tangle?! The best thing we ever did was purchase a little reel on which to store our lights, it really makes a huge difference when it comes time to trim the tree. Mind you, a tangle of lights always makes a cute card...


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