My Monthly Challenge ...

... and I completed it BEFORE the end of January!
Yay! Those of you who know the procrastinator in me
will understand what an accomplishment
that is for me! LOL
Here's hoping this is the first of many
successful challenges to myself.
Just a refresher, my personal goal for each month
is to make 6 Christmas cards,
10 gift tags, and 1 homemade gift.
I had my cards completed last week, but
I think for future months, I will save them until
my challenge is completed each month.
My Christmas gift tags

Homemade gift
I decided to make an accordian file card holder.
I found the tutorial for this in the resources section
There are 10 cards inside the box.
They are each very simple, but sweet cards
using a colored base, a white layer embossed with
the rebeccah cuttlebug embossing folder,
then a variety of sentiments or images stamped
in ink to match the card base.

Hi Krista! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such sweet comments! I am impressed...You do beautiful work! These tags are awesome and you did a fabulous job on the accordian file card holder. That is something that I've been wanting to do for awhile but like you, I am a procrastinator. Good luck on your personal goal. It sounds like you are right on track! I can't wait to see what you come up with...I'm a new follower.

What a great gift, Krista! You are going to be so relieved you aren't playing catch up in December. And your gifts will be beautiful!
