Default August 2018 Christmas Card Challenge

Here is the thread for the Christmas Card Challenge for August 2018!



For the rest of the year we are going with two themes a month to help us accomplish our goals!!


So for August's first theme, Adriana aka fl_beachbum suggests we use bodies of water on our cards!!

And for the second August theme, Lisa aka Shoe Girls suggests using candles on our cards!!


Please leave us a link to your card and make sure to use CCC18AUG in the title and in the Keywords!

Reminder, this is just a suggestion to help get you motivated and start on your 2018 Christmas Cards!

There is no 'deadline' to completing your Christmas cards for August, post anytime!

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!

I am forging ahead with my challenge cards.

This "use candles" challenge was just what I needed to use the fabulous candles from the Merry Patterns set. Here are my cards:

Here is a card for the body of water theme. Frosty does have a body and it is made up of water. It's just frozen!

Here are my August cards, finally! (Well, I had them done in August, but "stuff happening" kept me from getting them uploaded until today!) I chose to use a candle on my cards:

Season of Light set #1

Season of Light set #2

On to the September challenge!

This doesn't have a body of water OR candles, but I don't have any cards done for my August commitment, so it's going here!
