Well done Vonny - these look great with plenty of scope for folk to interpret them in different ways. Thanks for organising this.  Margaret
Mickie

Oct challenge -The Holly and the Ivy

This is starting to feel a bit of an uphill struggle, tho with Xmas fast approaching it should be on our minds a bit more. Confused
Certainly need to look at my stamps for this one as nothing is springing to mind
Mickie

Think this year's cards have been really well chosen Vonny and I do hope you will do the challenge again in 2016.  Sorry if it has felt a bit of an uphill struggle for you Cool
vonny

I think we are all finding it a bit of an uphill struggle- will need to re think for next year I guess
Beckyb

I am a guilty one I have found it a struggle but I don't want the challenges to stop perhaps try another theme. x
vonny

perhaps we could try something that could be for Xmas cards or more general? Perhaps colour combos or e.g. 3 things starting with...Don't know how this would work for Xmas but did think R could be red, ribbon, reindeer, robin??? Any comments or other suggestions?
Mickie

Will give it some thought; although I quite liked the carol theme!

Also like the idea of three things beginning with ?  

Then there's the Night Before Christmas verses.........
Beckyb

Like the idea of 3 beginning with ? as we are coming near to the end of Alphabet tag swaps we could do the alphabet again. x
vonny

I think the letter would have to be selected to make sure that Xmas themes could be used so we would need 11 letters
I will give this some thought but would you be happy to have this as Xmas or general card (or both)?
Mickie

I like the Christmas theme because I get to use my stash of seasonal stamps that would otherwise go unused.  However, I'm happy to go with the majority vote as always Laughing
vonny

I have found about 9 letters that would work well with Xmas. Have also had another idea of using classical music pieces -some would be more Christmassy than others tho e.g. Ode for Joy vs Swan Lake etc
Mickie

Classical music sounds like it might be fun Vonny
margaret rorie

I'm sorry that I haven't had much time to take part in this challenge this year.
vonny

oh please don't feel you need to apologise Margaret -it is there for people to do if and when they can and wish. Wanting to take part and having time are, as we all know, very different things  Smile
vonny

well have been thinking about this and I am veering towards the classical music pieces as the inspiration but leaving it totally open about what is made -so you can challenge yourself to make Xmas cards or make anything else you might like e.g. journal pages, books etc. i think this might make it easier to fit the challenge into what we are working on at the time.
Let me know if you think this will work as I have been thinking of pieces of music for the themes:)
Mickie

I think this is  great idea Vonny and i'm happy to carry on with it for next year.

I amended that I still have two Christmas cards to do to finish this year's challenge so will apply myself as soon as I get two minutes together Laughing
Beckyb

I agree with Mickie and a great idea Vonny  I would like it to carry on I am just sorry I haven't kept up this year. x
vonny

thanks for the support -the challenge really is an open option with no pressure but we do tend to make ourselves feel a bit guilty if we don't complete everything  Smile
