Let's Go!

Welcome to the start of a slow and creative ride to Christmas. This blog has been designed to inspire you to prepare for Christmas, little by little, at a nice and easy pace. you won't even notice you're doing it but you'll be so glad you did. Each week our fabulous and creative DT will be inspiring you with projects they've made on our weekly theme. These projects need not necessarily be cards, though if that's what you want to do, then that's absolutely fine - anything to take the stress out of Christmas. The themes are open to interpretation, and we welcome all crafters, whether you're papercrafters, photographers, stitchers, painters, anyone in fact who is willing to share their creativity with us and enhance the magic of Christmas!

A new theme will be posted here every Sunday to hopefully whet your appetite. The last Sunday of every month is intended to be something which is NOT a card - you'll see what we mean as time goes on. All we ask is that your submission is a newly created one. And next Sunday we will be announcing the winner of this fabulous Christmas set which Teri has very kindly donated:

So, lets get this party started and introduce you to the team who have created these fabulous samples based on our first theme - Oh Christmas Tree. Now it's over to you! Thanks for playing along with us and don't forget to add your link so that we can come and admire your offerings and take inspiration from you too!
