One For The Road...

My Christmas cards are already written and mostly sent, but I couldn't resist making just one more... and if I don't use it this year, there's always Christmas 2017!

Sock Snowmen

In the town where I live, we have a fabulous little craft cottage full of handmade arts and crafts, gifts and even pots of homemade jam from time to time. I've been a member for the past 16 years and have been making different crafts to display and sell over all those years. Believe it or not, I don't make cards for the craft cottage, but I do make lots of other items.
This year I've gone for a snowman theme for my Christmas display. Despite the fact that I've lived in Australia for most of my life, where we celebrate the holidays in summertime, these cool dudes really appeal to me.

I have scoured through all the snowmen ideas on Pinterest and there are quite a few that I've reproduced. If you also love snowmen, and crafting, do yourself a favour and look up "snowmen craft ideas"... you'll be amazed at what you find.

December Challenge

Create a card or paper-craft project using any Beccy's Place image, upload a photo of it to your blog and submit a direct link below. The challenge runs from now until midnight on the 31st of December 2016 (AEST).


Your project must be created during the month of December 2016. You can enter as many times as you like and you can submit your card to any other challenge you wish. At the end of the month three random winners will be chosen to receive their choice of a full set of digital stamps from my online store.

Each month I will include a re-mastered digital image from my library of freebies. You DO NOT have to use the design on your project, but you MUST use a Beccy's Place image, either free or purchased, to be eligible for entry.

Beccy's Place designers may enter the monthly challenge but are not eligible to win prizes.

Thank you so very much to everyone who played along in the challenge this month, whether it was to submit cards and projects to the challenge, to stop by the blog and leave a comment, or to visit the blogs of some of our participants. Without all your involvement the challenge wouldn't be as much fun as it is. Thank you for the inspiration, the kindness and the friendship!

What a 'sweet' card and guilt free of course! I like using digi stamps to resize the image and to layer them to make a scene because I don't like cutting out small images.

Special Mention

Congratulations to the following people who have won themselves a set of digital stamps for entering 20 cards or more in this year's challenge:
Debi B.
Gail Scott
Sarah W.
Suzanne H.
Swissie (Liv)

Due to the large volume of cards entered into the challenge this month, it's very possible that I've miscounted some of the entries. If you created and entered more than 20 cards into the November challenge and I've left you off the list, please accept my sincere apology and let me know via email so I can organise a prize for you.

The Countdown...

There are just over 12 hours left for the 2016 Month of Holiday Cards challenge, so make sure you get any last entries in!

Challenge closes at midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

I'm relatively new to card making and didn't really know what a digital stamp was until I joined this challenge. Now Pandora 's box is opened! Thanks so much!

What an awesome and inspirational challenge! I usually wish that I had changed something when I finished a card but never really thought to go back and make another one after I am through. Your card is lovely. I love the little scene and that pop of gold that frames it. A wonderful card to CASE. Thanks for the fun challenge!

Day 29 - Digital Stamps

Digital stamps are inexpensive, versatile and come in a huge range that covers every conceivable occasion, recipient and theme.  They can be flipped, coloured, printed, merged and resized until you are satisfied with the resulting image.  The freedom that comes with digital stamps and the ease of storage, is what makes them increasingly popular with card makers.

YOUR TURN: Create a card or project using a digital stamp.
