August Theme Challenge

Edit: this post was written and scheduled before recent events.

Hi and welcome to the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge, where I'm playing hostess again, and this week I have a theme for you to follow...  

I'm crazy about Christmas and love all things Christmas!  I think I inherited this from my mum - she made Christmas magical and truly the most wonderful time of the year.  For this week's inspiration, we would like you to make a card with mistletoe and wine as your theme, be it images, colours, embellishments and more, it's up to you! 

And to help you, here are some ideas from the Design Team ...

Please make sure to follow these rules when you play along with us here at 52CCT :)

Please read the challenge requirements carefully before creating your card. We will never delete any submissions that do not follow our challenge rules; however, only cards that meet the requirements will be considered by the Design Team for our weekly Top Honors and Honorable Mention voting. 

Please link back to our blog in your post so that others can join in the fun. 

We would love it if you added our button to the side of your blog.

Please make sure to link to your POST, not your blog.

Please make sure NOT to back link. Your card must not have been posted to your blog before the date of this challenge.

In order to be considered for Top Honor or Honorable Mention, you must link up by Friday at 6:00pm GMT.

You are free to combine this challenge with up to 10 other challenges.

 We'd really appreciate it if you'd turn off word verification so that we can comment more easily! We know a lot of you do this for safety, but it takes a very long time to comment when verification is activated, and you may lose your comments from us.



  1. What a great challenge Gill - thanks! Good one Jacqueline Dee - praying that it's all lies and for Cliff too! xx

  2. Ik vind het altijd leuk om met jullie uitdagingen mee te doen. Nu heb ik het denk ik niet helemaal goed gedaan. Ik heb geen rood van de wijn gebruikt. Succes met de uitdagingen, ik kijk weer met plezier naar de volgende. Groetjes, Nelleke
