Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge - June


Hello Blogging Friends!

I hope you had a great week and are ready for an even better weekend!  Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?  No?? Well, here is your chance.  I am back today with another challenge from Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge ! 
So what is the Progressive Christmas Challenge you ask?

If you want to join in, just send Laurian an email at 
christmasprogressive@mail.com  with your email address.  Then she will send you the 2 free images and then the fun begins.  All you have to do is make a card/s with one or both of the images to get the next month’s free images. She also asks that all participants link their posts to the sponsor as well as to Lady Anne’s.

This will be a monthly challenge so you will have plenty of time to complete your projects. If you miss a month or join in at a later date, you will be able to buy in for only £1, using the PayPal button in the side bar of the challenge blog. Only those who participate in the challenge will get the next month’s free digis.


Lady Anne has a few different challenges running and you have a month to enter!  So get some free images, get started on your Christmas cards and come share them with us!

Our sponsor this month is Digistamps 4 Joy!



I decided to step outside the box and do a 4x9 card today.  The image is generously provided by our sponsor Digistamps 4 Joy.  Remember, you can get this image for the challenge too.  I colored the image with copics and used MME paper in the background.  I used some burlap, ribbon, button and twine to finish off the image.  I also inked the edges of the image with brushed corduroy distress ink.


Copics used: 
Snowman:  W1, W2, 0
Hat/Scarf:  T3, T5, T7, T9, YG93, YG95, YG97, R24, R27, R89
Leaves:  G21, G24, G94, G99
Candle:  Y11, Y21, Y35


The inside sentiment is by Stampabilities.  I added some ink around the edges, some twine and a button.

As you know, I have been slowly cleaning things up in my life to reduce some stress due to some recent changes.  Sadly, this will be my last post for Lady Anne's challenges.  I have really enjoyed getting some Christmas cards done with the challenges, but must move on at this time.  It has been a wonderful opportunity!

Blessings until next time...
