I hope you’ve been enjoying our Week of Webisodes! It’s been a week packed with adorable Hunkydory Christmas projects and I am absolutely crazy for Hunkydory’s Contemporary Christmas card kit… I love the bold and bright colors paired with the little squirrels and foxes! Pink, black and silver-foiled Christmas cardstock?! Um, yes please!!! Click here to view all the gorgeous die-cuts and cardstock sheets you’ll receive with this kit!
I also love the Hunkydory Selection Box card kit – just take a look at Gail’s Spinner Slide Card (below)! I have been seeing lots of slider cards lately and Gail has really done a fantastic job with this one! The little sliding reindeer spins and slides so freely – he just frolics all over the front of this card and I love it. Click on the card below to view Gail’s method for creating the perfect spinning/sliding card!

- Last but definitely not least, it’s time to say CONGRATULATIONS to the winner of our October Design Challenge, Penny Douphinett!!! Our challenge for the month of October was to create a folded or shaped card, and her triangular Christmas card is definitely unique!
Penny says, “I am one of the swaps team organizers on the message boards. Paper Wishes was my first on-line purchase when I started papercrafting 10 years ago. I’ve been very happy to watch PW expand its product line to include dies and stencils. This was my favorite challenge, I really enjoy any kind of 3D project so this was right up my alley.”
Here is her winning entry:
Alright, I think we have plenty of Christmas in the air now. I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Take a little time to do something creative!!!
