Squirrel April 2017 Christmas Card Challenge

Here is the thread for the Christmas Card Challenge for April 2017!



For April, letís go with Amy's suggestion to use some kind of creature on our cards!

That would be reindeer, abominable snowmen, penguins, moose, or whatever creature you come up with!! Have fun with this one!!

Please leave us a link to your card and make sure to use CCC17APR in the title and in the Keywords!

Reminder, this is just a suggestion to help get you motivated and start on your 2017 Christmas Cards!

There is no 'deadline' to completing your Christmas cards for April!!

It's never too late to join....

You can join anytime during the year. If you need to skip a month or two, that is perfectly fine.

Glad there was a month for "Creatures", since I had already made the card before I checked the monthly themes!!!

Love Penny Black, and I knew I wanted to layer one of the images from this collection on a red plaid background, so here it is:

I just uploaded two Christmas cards. One features cardinals, and the other is a snowman with a tiny bird perched on his hand, so I guess in a stretch it could fit the April Theme (although I didn't use the keyword.) Trying to remember to upload these as I work on them.

I created some tags for today's CAS Penguin Challenge and this month's Critter challenge. I really like how these turned out. I made 4 of them to reach my quota for the month.

Thanks for the fun challenge and for taking a look!
