12 Months of Christmas Cards Pays Off


We are now into the 7th day of Christmas and it’s a fairly certain bet that not many Christmas cards are still being made for the 2011 season.  They have all been mailed and have lifted the spirits of those who have received them.  You worked hard to get them all completed and should be proud of your efforts.  Many Waltzingmouse Stamps Forum members have worked all year long to complete their cards.  They have participated each month in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge.  (WMSCCC)

Each month, WMS issues a challenge theme for anyone who wants to consistently work on their Christmas cards.  We encourage everyone to play along each month for two reasons; 1) It’s easier to make Christmas cards throughout the year, rather than try to make them all amidst the holiday rush, and 2) there are prizes involved for participating; both motivating factors.

The participants who accepted the challenge each month have been entered into a GRAND PRIZE drawing.  The WMSCCC had many creative ladies participate, and 10 creative crafters completed the challenge each of the 12 months. I’m happy to announce our Grand Prize winner for the 2011 Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge.  From the 10 crafters who completed each challenge, we drew randomly for the prize, which is a coupon code for $150!  Our BIG winner is:

Liza Carruthers

Congratulations, Liza, on your dedication and participation.  To claim your discount code, please send me (Lynn Mercurio) a PM on the WMS forum, and I’ll get your code directly to you.

The Christmas Card Challenge gallery is bulging at the seams of wonderfully creative cards all full of Waltzingmouse Stamps goodness.  If you haven’t taken a peek lately, you can see them ALL here.  As 2011 comes to an end, and 2012 is now only hours away, a new set of monthly challenges will soon be announced.  We hope that you will join us for the 2012 challenges beginning January 10th.

Happy New Year!

  11. Congratulations, Liza, to this wonderful prize!

    I certainly intend to participate again in the Christmas Card Challenge for 2012 and I thank Lynn for all her great inspirations and challenges. I intend to make a card every month for the actual month, i.e. a card in January for January, etc. because after all it is a monthly challenge *lol*, so I try to fulfil that "task".

    Happy New Year to everyone!

    Kind Regards

  12. Congrats, Liza and have fun shopping! Sounds like a grand time!! I can't wait to wipe the slate clean with my dismal showing (two months I think!) and have a go at 2012! Happy new year!!
