Quick Announcement

Hi everyone. Just a quick announcement today. We've decided to make a small change to the way we play our challenge. 

 Nothing drastic, just something that we think will make it a little easier for everyone. 

 From now on everyone who participates and follows the monthly theme will be in the running for the monthly prize.  You no longer have to create five cards to qualify for the prize. 

 If you wish to enter the challenge more than once you may do so, you just need to enter a different card each time. 

 The challenge rules have been updated on the sidebar to reflect the changes.

Have fun creating your cards for this month's challenge. We look forward to seeing your creations.

Don't forget to scroll down for this month's challenge.

March Challenge

Happy Spring!

We are combining spring, Saint Patrick's Day and Christmas in your challenge this month!!

GREEN!! and TWO different green patterned paper!

That's right - make the main color on your card GREEN!

Prizes: The LUCKY winner this month will recieve their choice of FOUR files (digi stamps, cutting files or digi papers ) from Platypus Creek Digitals! Check out our sponsor store!

First up though we would like to introduce a new member of our Design Team:


My name is Teresa, and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I love Cardmaking and playing with paper, and I’m just delighted to join the talented team at CCAYR. The thought of having so many Christmas cards made during the year is extra exciting for me – I usually get no sleep for two or three nights trying to hurriedly finish them in mid December. I look forward to sharing some ideas with you throughout the year.

Please welcome Teresa to the Design Team.

Now our cards for this month:








And.......come back on March 15th to see our new addition to this blog - we are lucky to have a Guest Designer joining us monthly. Come back to see who it is and what they have to offer!
