CMC Holiday Bash!



Hello and TGIF!    Yes!    We have reason to be thankful THIS Friday because it is the kickoff of our CMC Holiday Bash!    

This is a special message from Suzanne Dean, Creator and Owner of Color Me Creative!
Suzanne

Starting December 7th the CMC Classroom will have its annual month-long Holiday Bash Celebration! Nothing more fun then having some fun challenges, games and prizes to start the season off right!? I hope you will find time to stop in and look around, join in and just have some fun. The Holiday Bash is really my way of THANKING ALL OF YOU for your continued support, friendship and patronage to the Classroom. So a lot of fun and a way to WIN SOME HUGE prizes from our sponsor!

Details:

*Starts Dec. 7th with a Holiday Blog Hop featuring projects by the CMC DT to kick off the month-long CMC Challenge!! And another way for you to win if you hop along!

*Every week will be a NEW Challenge and Prize...think scavenger hunts, puzzles, games!

*Charity Raffle - I'm giving away a NEW Silhouette Cameo machine to a lucky someone! How can you win it? Everytime you participate in a challenge during the month you get an entry for it. Also for every $3 you donate to the Charity (TBA) you get an entry. Every year I pick a different Charity to help...so far we've raised $3200 over the years..and to me the season is all about GIVING so that's why I always include this.



The full details and listing of activities can be found HERE!

Doesn't that sound great?   I am so grateful for the opportunity to participate in Suzanne's wonderful Holiday Bash!     I created this card for our celebration.   

Bells & Boughs (Stampin Up)
Our theme is to color gold or silver and to make it a "Magical Holiday" card.   
 I hope you like it!   

Copics used for the Gold Bells:  
YR24, YR23, Y11 and Y00
I used W5, W3, W1 and W00 for the rustic metal band around the bells.  

Copics used for Bow: R39, R24, R22, R20, White chalk
Copis for Leaves:  G28, YG63, G43, G40, Y00

I created cathedral windows using my Nestabilities Die.
