COMMENTING...

If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.

Welcome!!!

Welcome everyone to the first post at CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR 'ROUND!!!

How do you like the look of the blog! Isn't is amazing!!! Thanks so much to Melissa at Scrapz N Stuff. Give her a visit and let her know that she did a GREAT job with the Christmas Card blog !!!

The purpose of this blog is to get you creating CHRISTMAS cards , as it says, ALL YEAR 'ROUND!
There will be ONE monthly challenge posted and you will be required to create 5 cards based on that challenge. The cards can be all the same, or you can make 5 different ones, but they all must follow the challenge. For everyone who finishes the 5 cards each month, their names will be put in a draw for a small prize (of probably some sheets of Stampin' Up cardstock, something easy and not too expensive to mail)

I will be posting more info about this blog as the week goes by, BUT if you'd like to be considered for my Christmas Card Design Team, please create a Christmas card (No!!!!! Really!!!!!!!!!!!) taking inspiration from the blog header and colors! Easy as that! And I'll choose 5-6 people and they will be my Design Team for a 3 month term. (starting in OCTOBER) There are no kits for you to play with, there are no discounts at a store (because I HAVE no store,sorry! hehe!), there are no other obligations other than create a CHRISTMAS card based on the challenge I send you. There'll only be one card challenge a month. So that's 3 cards a TERM to create for me for the monthly card reveals. Oh, but if you'd like to be entered into the monthly draws that I will be having, you will have to complete 5, yep 5 cards each month to qualify. If you prefer NOT to enter the monthly contest, then its ONE card a month for 3 months!

Email me your newly created Christmas card (done especially for this challenge) if you'd like to try for the DT.

I will choose a DT on SEPT 17th WEDNESDAY and announce the members on SEPT 18th.

More details later as to how the blog will be run and start dates... So add it to your favs, put it in your google reader or subscribe to the blog to be sure to get updates!
