Create Anything You Dream Up for Week One of Anything But a Card Challenges No. 30

Good Morning Everyone! Can you believe its December and Christmas is only 24 days away??? Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and those that "RECYCLED IT" with Susan's mini-challenge. Stay tuned for a new "Spotlight and Mini-Challenge" at the bottom of December {Christmas week}... and a little elf told us that the end of year mini challenge will go for two weeks as it falls over Christmas and New Year holidays.

It's time for a new challenge today here at Anything But a Card Challenges... so get ready to play and have some fun! Congratulations to all of you who were inspired to create with bold contrasting colors for Challenge #29 "Fall Into Fall". If you missed out on seeing all the amazing submissions... please CLICK HERE to check them out.

The new Challenge... Anything But a Card Challenge #30 - Anything Goes... With a Holiday Twist! This challenge is an open theme – but we love the holidays too and can't wait to see what everyone is creating! Please share any current project you have created, and if it's Holiday themed that's perfectly OK, too! JUST REMEMBER... create anything EXCEPT a card for this challenge AND please mention and LINK BACK to this challenge. ALSO - Please new projects only {no-backlinking}. :)

**A REMINDER** This Challenge will go through midnight Dec. 21st. giving you 3 weeks to play along and ENJOY the creative process! We will share more of our Design Team's creations each Sunday to keep you inspired.

Let's see what part of our DT has created!!

Please click on the designers' name to visit their blog. We hope you’ll take a minute to go see their work up close... and as long as you’re there – please leave them a little love!

I enjoy the challenge that decorating and making for Christmas brings. What is this you ask? You can check out what I created over on my blog but before you do as we edge towards 2014, I want to say:
 "May your days be happy and filled with delight
however you choose to Celebrate."
In 2013, I have read many heart warming and inspiring posts this year. I have seen some amazing art and it has been a privilege to share you journey.

I made this book to hold my 2013 Christmas cards.
Otherwise they tend to get thrown out!
Check out my blog for more details!

I know it's only the 1st December but I've decided to go all out and start making Christmas creations! This is a garland I've made with a variety of items attached using rusty wire hooks and some lighting added to finish the look.


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday to see more of our Design Team creations!
