It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas–AGAIN!


The new year brings a new set of Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenges to you.  I know what you’re thinking; “What?  We just put away the Christmas decorations”, but the months pass quickly and there is no better time than right NOW to get started on your cards for Christmas 2012.

The challenge is pretty simple.  While you increase your stash of Christmas cards, you increase your changes of winning a wonderful prize as well.  Here are a few basic guidelines for the monthly Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge:

  • A new challenge will be issued on the 10th of each month in the Playroom Forum
  • Once you have created your project, upload it to the special WMSCCC gallery  Each card must contain some Waltzingmouse Stamps’ images, but does not have to be exclusively WMS products to be eligible for prizes (yep, there are prizes awarded those to play along each month)
  • All projects will be Christmas themed. You may make as many projects as you like for each challenge, but only ONE is necessary to enter the challenge. We encourage you to make batches of cards since our end goal is to have enough hand-made Christmas cards for each person on our “list”.
  • You can play along when and if you want – make it suit your schedule. For example, challenge cards for January may be uploaded anytime before June to be eligible for the “halfway point prize”. The same goes to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE – projects for all twelve months must be uploaded to their appropriate gallery prior to the end of December.

To get you started, I have a sample to hopefully motivate you.


This month our challenge is to create cards that showcase either a day or nighttime sky.  I chose a star-filled snowy scene.  For more details on my sample cards and to join in the challenge for this month, you can visit the January 2012 challenge thread on the Waltzingmouse Stamps’ forum.

I hope you will join us this month and every month!



  1. Stunning cards Lynne. I'm determined to play along each month this year and NOT leave it to November to try to play catch up and fail miserably......
