Beat the Christmas Rush Jan 25th–Feb 24th

2015 Christmas Card Tally 1
1 Jan

Two days late, I know, but welcome to the first  Beat the Christmas Rush for 2015. If the truth be told, I wasn’t going to start BtCR for a fourth year, but as two people have already asked me where it is I have changed my mind!  The card I am sharing with you this month is the one I made for Michael for Christmas using Cricut cut penguins and mistletoe and some punched hearts – simple but perfect for a pair of penguin lovers, as we are.

What’s Beat the Christmas Rush all about? Our aim is to make up to 5 Christmas cards a month so that, by November 25th you will have a nice stock of cards that only need you to write in them – simples! No last minute rush making it a chore instead of an enjoyable crafting activity. If you miss a month, or only manage one card like me this month! that’s just fine. Dip in and out as you choose. Just link us to your blog post, gallery page or photo hosting site. I will choose my favourite to feature in the next month’s BtCR blog post.

Thank you to all those who linked up their fab cards last month. I picked these cuties by Krafty Karen as my favourite.

So, why not join us for our first link in 2015?

The small print … please only link new cards. Up to 5 links allowed per person per month. Mention my blog in your post(s).  It’s not necessary, but I’ll be thrilled, if you join my blog as a follower. If you miss a month or two it doesn't matter, come back next month … or the month after.

Sue, thank you for running this again - I did fall by the wayside a bit last year, but will try to do better this time around :-)

That is seriously cute. Lovely design.

I've done loads of cards already but think that I won't have enough (I never do), the additional 5 per month would make the difference, so I need to crack on and get some done - thanks for the inspiration

Such a great idea...but I'm really not sure I can think about Christmas just yet!! Well done for continuing, and I love your penguins!

The cards are pretty Susan. I can't get into the swing of thinking about Christmas right now . But I must admit it's a good idea .
