HIMCR #177 - Christmas Colors

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Here it is the first Saturday of the month
and you know what that means, don't you???

That's right . . . not only is it time for a new challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room, but it's time for a "color" challenge.  This week the challenge is to use Christmas colors . . . this can be whatever colors you like to use at Christmastime.

The sponsor is
The giveaway is a pack of Christmas papers from!

For this week's challenge I did a few CAS cards using some papers that PaperTemptress sent all of us along with some YUMMY ribbone - red/green ladder ribbon!!!  That's right!  PaperTemptress also has ribbon in addition to all the AMAZING papers.  Here's two (2) of the cards I did this week (I will post more throughout the week):

For this first card, I used Opal Mica/Metallic paper along with some
printed paper (on Lime Mica/Metallic paper) and some red-green ladder ribbon.

For the second card, I used White Sparkle Tinsel/Glitter on Candido Incandescent paper from PaperTemptress to give it even more texture . . . the Candido Incandescent gives it a great shimmer under the tinsel/glitter.  Put that together with the Red Pepper Thick Column paper and I had a GREAT child's CAS card.

Remember,  you have one week to get your "Christmas Colors" projects in at Hiding In My Craft Room in order to be eligible for the Christmas Paper Package from PaperTemptress . . . believe me, you don't want to miss out!!!

But if you can't wait and get some paper now, PaperTemptress has a Christmas Paper Package on sale for 25% along with all the Kraft paper and Mica/Metallic papers. And Patricia hasn't stopped there . . . all ribbon is 50% off and Cryogen White paper is 30% this month.   Basically, all you would need to finish up your Christmas cards.

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
