Coasting Towards Christmas

Already we are on the last challenge of the year at An Oldie But a Goodie, and hasn't the year flown by. I only joined the DT in Nov, but I've been doing this challenge throughout the year along with many of you great followers.

So, the final Challenge, set by Tracy is,

Christmas Animals

And the prize this time around is;


Now, if you're anything like me, there will have been a flurry of Christmas cards over the last few weeks, so you'll kinda be looking for a change. If that's the case, why not use the theme in a different way, think gifts or table decorations, candles or gift holders - the choice is yours , as long as you use a stamp older than 6 months & remember, no digi's allowed. Obviously however, cards are still very welcome, if you still have a few to make. This challenge will also run for a month as we are all so busy at this time of year, so hopefully you'll all have time to enter.


So, I decided to put Christmas images into photo coasters I bought last year - simple idea & a start to decorating my Christmas table.


The images are Penny Blacks all coloured by Promarkers. So that's what I did, now hop over to the Oldie But Goodie blog to see what the other DT members decided on.

Hopefully that gives you all the inspiration you need to join us in our final challenge of 2011.

I'm also entering this one in the Stamp Man Challenge - Create An Ornament - Mine's a table ornament &
The Secret Crafter - All Creatures Great And Small.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas & looking forward to seeing you all back for a productive New Year, Jx
