With Christmas a mere nine days away, you’ve got a Santa-sized list to make and check twice. I’m feeling your pain.  

That’s why we’ve made our Gallery Challenge elf-easy this month. The last thing we want to do is add another task to your list, so we’re focusing on a project you’re already working on—holiday cards. Since they’re already in the hopper, why not show them off?   

As a matter of fact, I’m super excited to show off these cards from our November/December issue as a way to get you inspired both to submit and to create, as the case may be.   

Jingle All the Way Card by Rae Barthel, p. 37

I love the way Rae has tied in the sheet music and the jingle bell to this card with a song as its title.   

Snowflake Happy Holidays Card by Patricia Komara, p. 41

Patricia’s gorgeous card has put a silver lining on all my Christmas dreams.   

Bright Be Merry Card by Wendy Sue Anderson, p. 38

Wendy Sue’s card puts the cute in Christmas!   

Whether you mailed your cards last week, and especially if, like me, you’re a procrastinator who hasn’t even started, we’d love to see your paper crafted holiday cards! Upload them HERE by Monday, Dec. 28 and you’ll not only be a contestant to win, but you’ll also see other inspiring cards that might get your juices flowing for those neighbor tags you still need to whip up, or for that special card for a certain someone you haven’t gotten around to just yet.   

Because at Paper Crafts, friends, inspiration is at the top of our list—and we’re definitely checking it twice!   

Good luck and have fun,

P.S. It may be Christmastime, but in Magazineland we’ve just concepted our July/August 2010 issue! Feel like submitting? We’re always on the lookout for fresh new projects from fresh new talent. Click HERE to see our exciting July/August 2010 Call for Submissions!
