I've finally finished these cards, Kittie's are so much better but I just love the way she used the lights that I've had in my stash forever. Thanks for the idea Kittie.

I'm so sorry I didn't keep to the challenge - have been creating away from the computer and wandering off.

My (non challenge) August cards are:
Sparkly Angels
Gilded Nativity
Snowy Sledding
Large Snowy Globe
Santa Bauble

I love using this torn paper technique and thought it would be great for snow! So here's my sample for August. It's gonna be a busy month so I thought I had better do this now.

Whew! Finally got one of my Christmas card sets done and feeling good about that. I swear I am on the every-other-year plan with this challenge. One year I faithfully stick with the challenge each month and the next I get totally derailed. Sheesh!

Wonders will never cease. Made my cards and posted them up and it is still August.
I made 4 groups of 3 but really two designs.
Wise Men 1 to 3
Wise Men 4 to 6
Snowmen 7 to 9
Snowmen 10 to 12

As it is still raining I might start Septembers!
