FFC22 - Merry Christmas!


Today's the start of our final Festive Friday Challenge for this year! This challenge is a fun one - go back and choose your favourite FF challenge from 2013 and make a card. It's a two week challenge and at the end there's PRIZES (check out the details on the blog).  All the Challenge graphics are available on the FF blog - go choose your fave!

I chose three - Merry, Kids' Theme and Wreath:




If you live with a 10 year old girl, you know that making these bracelets out of little colourful rubber bands on the Rainbow Loom is all the rage! Kate made this bracelet/wreath for this card, which she will give to one of her friends. I used a new stamp I just got from an Etsy shop called Creatiate.

So this is it for Festive Friday 2013. Don't forget to join us in February 2014 as we start a new year of creating Christmas cards!

Using a craze for your card is a great idea and the fact that Kate could contribute to one she will give makes it even more special.
