December - Pick a Previous 2016 Challenge

Good Morning. We have made it to December and, if you've been playing along each week, you have at least 47 cards in your stash. There are only 21 days until Christmas, but it's not too late to make a few more cards if you need them. We are also aware that this month can be a bit stressful, so we're only going to have one challenge for the whole month and the theme is:


You pick the challenge that you enjoyed the most, or try one that you missed. You'll find all our colours, sketches, themes, techniques, stash challenges in the tabs above. Just make sure you pick a 2016 challenge and tell us which one you've used.

We are running this challenge for the whole of December, so if there's a special card that you want to keep as a surprise, you can upload it after 25th December.

The challenge deadline is midnight (GMT) Wednesday 28th December (that's 7.00 EDT for those of us in the States). We will announce the winners for the December challenge on Wednesday 4th January.

We would like to thank everyone who applied to join our Design Team. It's been a really hard decision and I know that many of you are very keen to find out who will be joining the Design Team. We will be announcing all our new Design Team members on 17th December. Do pop back then to say hello and welcome them to the team.

And now, here's some Christmas inspiration based on our 2016 challenges from the Design Team:

  1. I missd so many challenges this year :(( -- I can not miss the last one!!
    Hope I'll be able to do more next year!!
    Happy Hollidays to the whole team!
    Huge Hugs, Rosi

  2. I love this challenge - there were a couple of weeks I missed in the year, but had cards planned I really wanted to make. So this is a great opportunity to go back and make them, hopefully in time to send them this year. Otherwise they'll be the start of next year's stash!

  3. This is such a fun idea for a challenge! Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Oh dear, I am really having 'senior moments' (it is a year since I have blogged)! I want to apologise that last night, when I entered my card (Number 61), I didn't link back to 52CCT...I have just done so.
