SU-per Challenge 70: giftwrapping

I was surfing around and found the SU-per Challenges blog.  It's already the 70th challenge and it sounds 'giftwrapping'.  I thought it was a little crazy to try this because I'm not into gifts, I'm happy when I have time to create all the cards I need and try a layout every now an then.  On top of this I don't have a lot of SU stamps (yet).  But since it's a new year, I thought I could try something new and this is the result.  I've copied the present we received from my nephew's baby son that was born in August.  The background is created with distress inks and I've used the following stamps: Botanical Blooms, Polka Dot Punches and Friendship Preserves.

My Favorite Christmas Cards of 2014!

Every year Debby asks us to look back and choose the favorite five christmas cards we've created that year.  Because of Klaartjes challenge I had a lot of cards to choose from this year.  I've choosen a mix from scrapped and stamped cards.

Christmas card 31 !!!!

Yes, I did it! I'm so happy I finished this challenge succesfully with a result of 31 christmas cards!  I think I've made more cards this last month than I did in the rest of the year.  It was a really nice experience and I've learned that I also have to try out the great ideas I find on Pinterest and that I have enough time after work to get my crafty stuff out, even if it's only for an hour or so.  Now it's time to clean my desk 'cause I have to admit it's one big mess. As I didn't have a lot of time to do this in between, almost everything I've used is still on my desk.

Christmas card (29)

No, I'm not failing on day 29 of the challenge :) But wednesday is my running day, so after work, dinner, running and showering I finally had time for my christmas card.  I lifted another card from Elke, I think.

Christmas card (28)

Here's my christmas card for today. The materials I've used are: Dovecraft patterned papers 'Let it Snow', a star punch, a Hero Arts sentiment stamp and Brilliance ink 'Black Lightning'.   I'm sorry for the bad lightning on the picture.

Christmas card (27)

Another simple christmas card today with patterned papers from Crate Paper (Snow Day Collection).  I don't have a lot of time this week, so I hope I'll get the end of the month/challenge.  4 more christmas cards to go!
