Challenge 15 - Colour Combo x

Hey guys, Happy December!! I hope all of our friends in America had an amazing thanksgiving this week xx I'm very excited to officially be in December now - Christmas is by far my favourite time of year so I'll be skipping about with a big grin on my face until the new year :-) 

I can't believe how busy it got here last month - it was such a treat to see so many beautiful Christmas cards!! I know I had said that there would be one winner for the challenge but I would feel like a bah humbug scrooge if I only did one after we received so many gorgeous entries - I genuinely hadn't expected to see so many (I guess Christmas cards is the most popular challenge as so many people celebrate it) :-) 

I decided to run the numbers through the random number generator 3 times this month and the winners for the Christmas Card challenge are:

Peggy R

Bev Cole

Jenee Todd

Congratulations ladies – I’ll get your cards added to the winners wall and if you email me with at with your choice of 4 digi’s I’ll get those over to you xx

Right, onto the next challenge – as you can see from the title we're doing a colour combo challenge this month so we're looking for cards with green, blue, and pink on them. Our DT ladies have done us proud again with some really beautiful cards - I'm very thankful to them as always for their hard work and wonderful skills xx

A winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator and announced on New Year's Day (when we launch the January challenge).

Right, I'm off to get Mariah on loop and dance around the house putting the Christmas decorations up :-D Hope you all have a lovely month - see you in the New Year!! xx

Digi hugs and xx's

Hello, Angela here!  Can you believe we are welcoming December?  With a new month comes a new challenge and Emma has picked some beautiful colors for us to work with.  I have to say that color challenges are a bit tough for me, but I remembered this pretty paper I had in my stash and paired it with Puppy Love.  I hope you will join us for our challenge...I'd love to see what YOU do with this color combo!

Hey, it's Audrey here and I have chosen to make a Christmas card as well using this awesome color combo.  I chose the adorable image "Christmas Dinner," which I have colored with my Copics and cut out with Lifestyle Crafts dies.  I see that Kathy and I have the same taste in designer paper as I also used this awesome Carta Bella pack for my card.  My cardstock is Doodlebug Designs and SU, bling flourishes are from Prima.  My sentiment is from Flourishes clear stamps and cut with Lifestyle Crafts die.

Hi everyone, Kathy here. Such a pretty color combo Em has selected for us to use. I've decided to do a holiday card, since they are quickly approaching now. My image is called Baublegown. Isn't her holiday dress so cute? I got lucky and found some patterned paper that fit the color palette well. Hope you will take some time and play along with our challenge this month!

Hi there, crafty people! Laura, here with my version of a Clean and Simple card.  I love the cheerful colors in today's Color Challenge! Since flu and cold season is sneaking up on us, I took the opportunity to make a "get well soon" card. The Digi I used is appropriately called "Get Well Soon"

Sally - Hi there, it's Flatfriends Challenge time! This month it is using the above colour combination.  At first I wasn't too sure, but I went through my crafty stash of cardstock and papers and found some that look quite good together.  The image I chose is one of Emma's first digi images and it is the first time I have used it.  I coloured here with my Graph'it marker pens and cut her out.  I then made a Union Jack background out of my bits and bobs scraps.  I added a sentiment and here she is. Cute eh?

Hi there, Sarah here - and it's officially Christmas card making time, so what did I do?  Make a non-Christmas card!!  Though I suppose it could be used as a winter birthday card, if you fancy. I used a lovely digi called, Christmas Shopping coloured her in with my ProMarkers, die-cut it out and chalked the background.  I then added some extremely old papers that I adore (and have almost run out of!) in the gorgeous colour combo that Emma picked! Added some die-cuts, a sentiment and hey-presto one finished card.

Hi guys, Em here xx I've been crazy nervous about this card - it was my birthday this month so I decided to ask for money to finally start my colouring pen collection. I've been having a lot of fun over the last week starting to learn the skills of colouring by hand and, needless to say, I am addicted already!! I'm in love with my Copics and can imagine all my spare time will be spent colouring from now on :-D I decided to just focus on the colouring of my digi this time so the card layout is about as simple as you can get (sorry) xx

Remember that you don't need to use a Flat Friends digi to enter our challenges anymore but there is an extra prize on offer if you do :-) A list of the challenge rules can be found on the tab at the top of this page xx
