This is part game; part challenge & just for fun.

Here's what you have to do to play:
1. Find & link a project (your own or another's) to this thread.

2. Identify the project as #1.

3. Wait a minimum of one day & link another project as your #2

Your challenge is to post links to 12 projects before Dec. 25.

Your posts do not have to be on immediately consectutive days, but you not post/link more than one project per day.

For extra Santa credit? If you link another StamPeas project, leave them a comment--even if you have done that previously.

Let's Deck our Halls (forum)!

I love this idea, Daniel.

For my #1 card, I have to link to Jennifer's wonderful Gumball Santa card. This is my all-time favorite Santa face image, and Jennifer always does him justice.

I love what I've seen so far.

Here's a link to another great Santa face. Marshia did a beautiful job coloring too. My fave is the first, white one.

Fun to see y'all doing your days! My Day 2 is for all those Peas who are expecting ice & snow today.

FWIW... Your 12 days choices are up to you. They do not need to be Christmas-related. And it is fine to include your own pieces in your days. Just remember to link one per day.

It's also fun to check out the galleries of the people who made the cards we are linking. Some fabulous artwork there.

I visited Deborah March's gallery to select a card this time. The only problem was that it took me forever. Her gallery is an experience. I found a card that I hadn't commented on before, and it's a beauty.

WTG, Daria!

I've only been so-so when adding tags to my uploads, but I'm learning how useful they can be when we're searching an individual gallery. I'm making more use of them.

I'm especially enjoying finding projects from before my joining 2Ps. So many wonderful ones.

Daniel, I also am enjoying looking back in time at the galleries of people who haven't been here in a while.

For Day 5, I'm linking Kristy's beautiful snowflake paper she made with the faux batik method. Kristy's blog is filled with wonderful art.

Brayergirl's Faux Batik Snowflake Paper

If you'd like to know how to do this technique, here is a tutorial from her blog:
Bella Batik Tutorial.

Here's a Resource Thread for Batik

Daria

ETA: If you wander around Kristy's gallery and/or blog, you'll find other beautiful handmade backgrounds using different techniques.

Enjoy.

I spent a good bit of time this morning going thru the gallery. I searched using the theme option (Christmas) & started with the oldest ones I could find--2003.

My Day 7 is a cute idea that any of us can easily adapt without having the poster's materials--template, stamp, etc.

For my Day #7 card, I visited my stamping buddy's gallery. I knew I could find lots of cards to choose from there. I almost chose one of her southwestern cards that I love so much, but I'm sticking with the winter holidays for this challenge. Narrowing it down like that makes it easier for me to choose a card.

Here's Nora S's super cute/happy Christmas Card.

LOL, April! Have no idea where any of these stamps are in my stash! It's been years since I've seen/used them.

And I wondered why I had 'Joy' in my text? Silly me! The word is 'Icy', but that font had me wondering WTH?!

I think it's the font Daniel! Now I see Joy and Icy! And I'm sorry again about Beady . You lost a good friend. Her projects show how much fun she had!

Phew! I'm caught up on everyone's "12 days". Wonderful selections and so happy to see some I'd missed!

Thanks for resurrecting my "partridge in a pear tree" Daniel! I made many multiples of that card. Made backgrounds in one or two sessions, stamped in another, and I'm sure assembled over a few nights.

I'm off to find my Day 2.
