December's challenge offered a 5x5 tic-tac-toe board! I chose the bottom row. For gold, I have gold gems and foil lines in the patterned label paper, plus my glitter cardstock is gold. My stamp is the cardinal which also met the bird requirement and I have red snowflake paper as the background.
I received this fabulous card from dear Jo (Just a Dotty Pudding), the other challenge administrator. Poor Jo was left wondering over Christmas if I'd rec'd her card. I was visiting my parents for the holidays and came home on December 30th to a lovely stack of holiday mail, including her card! I just love that cute Santa & the fun tag - thanks Jo!! Sorry for the dark photo but you can see it in better light on Jo's blog HERE.
I thank Gail and Jo for all their hard work in 2021 on this fun card chain challenge!! Want to play? You have until 1/6/22 to sign up for the January chain HERE. It's wonderful to send and receive a handmade card each month! I especially love reveal day because I enjoy seeing all the different ways people go with their creations - so inspiring!!
Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!
