The Challenge Chicks

Last month my friends Jeanne, Anna, and I had a little Critter Challenge…and it was so much fun that we decided to make it a monthly event!  Now we are The Challenge Chicks and a few other gals have joined us.  Fun!

We’d love for you to play along with us!  All you need to do is follow the theme each month and post your project to our Facebook page or use the specific keyword when uploading to SCS.  Easy!  And if you play along, we have a cool badge for you to add to your blog (thanks to our talented Anna)!  Just save this one…or copy the code in my sidebar for your widget.———>

This month I challenged The Chicks to create a Christmas tag (Use keyword CHXDEC12 on SCS).  I ended up making two tags using Tina Wenke’s Winter Collection papers, Spellbinders dies, and some Paper Smooches stamps.  First I used the Nested Mittens…

Next I made a Frosty’s Hat tag with the Reverse Wonky Rectangles die.  Don’t know where I saw this idea but it was perfect!

Now go check out all the other Chicks’ tags!  (and come play along!)
