Beat The Christmas Rush – February

February 25, 2013

BTCR Feb 4Β Hard to believe that another month has passed already, but it’s time for our next installment of Beat The Christmas Rush over at the Creative Craft World blog. Every month on the 25th we are going to try and increase our Christmas card stash in advance so we have plenty ready for the big day!

BTCR Feb 3Here’s a couple from me – not too much on them so they are nice and flat for posting! And of course, my old friend the Silhouette Cameo helped out with the greetings.

I’m also pleased to be hosting another Christmas card designer on my blog today – my mum!

BTCR Feb 2Mum is also stocking up ready to beat the Christmas rush, and these were just a couple of the gorgeous cards she had already made.

BTCR Feb 1Aren’t they fab?

If you would like to join in our Beat The Christmas Rush monthly challenge then all you have to do is make one or more Christmas cards, they can be all the same design or different, it doesn’t matter! Head over to the CCW challenge blog and add a link to your cards to the challenge post over there – simple!

We had some lovely cards in last months entries and it was hard to pick a favourite, but I think the cards below were my favourites from Wendy over at Scrapbooks and Cookbooks. Wendy said her cards were quick and easy to make – just what we need!
