I needed to make another Christmas card, but was lacking for inspiration, so I went to Feline Playful, and clicked Challenges in the word cloud, and then hit CTRL-F to find the word "Christmas" in the challenge list. It popped up pretty often, considering that it is August, but lots of people want to get a head start like I do. 52 Christmas Throwdown requested a chipboard embellishment, Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas suggested a card for a couple, and Christmas Stampin' All Year Long wanted non-traditional colors. Yes, these are all challenge blogs dedicated to people who make Christmas cards throughout the year.
I also hit a couple of non-Christmas blogs. I♥2Stamp provided the sketch, Our Creative Corner wanted something recycled and a touch of green, Challenge up your Life just wanted a Christmas card, and Blessings Ink threw out an "anything goes" challenge.
