This year I decided to learn how to needle felt, it's not a hard craft to do, but I think mastering it would take lots of time and practice. This little guy is around the tenth needle felted project I've made, but it was during his construction that I managed to stab myself for the first time... and boy did it hurt!

My Christmas cards are already written and mostly sent, but I couldn't resist making just one more... and if I don't use it this year, there's always Christmas 2017!

In the town where I live, we have a fabulous little craft cottage full of handmade arts and crafts, gifts and even pots of homemade jam from time to time. I've been a member for the past 16 years and have been making different crafts to display and sell over all those years. Believe it or not, I don't make cards for the craft cottage, but I do make lots of other items.
This year I've gone for a snowman theme for my Christmas display. Despite the fact that I've lived in Australia for most of my life, where we celebrate the holidays in summertime, these cool dudes really appeal to me.
I have scoured through all the snowmen ideas on Pinterest and there are quite a few that I've reproduced. If you also love snowmen, and crafting, do yourself a favour and look up "snowmen craft ideas"... you'll be amazed at what you find.

Create a card or paper-craft project using any Beccy's Place image, upload a photo of it to your blog and submit a direct link below. The challenge runs from now until midnight on the 31st of December 2016 (AEST).
PLEASE READ THE CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE ENTERING THE CHALLENGE
Your project must be created during the month of December 2016. You can enter as many times as you like and you can submit your card to any other challenge you wish. At the end of the month three random winners will be chosen to receive their choice of a full set of digital stamps from my online store.
Each month I will include a re-mastered digital image from my library of freebies. You DO NOT have to use the design on your project, but you MUST use a Beccy's Place image, either free or purchased, to be eligible for entry.
Beccy's Place designers may enter the monthly challenge but are not eligible to win prizes.
Congratulations to the five final winners of the
November Month of Holiday Cards Challenge!
You've each won five sets of digital stamps from my online store.
Thank you so very much to everyone who played along in the challenge this month, whether it was to submit cards and projects to the challenge, to stop by the blog and leave a comment, or to visit the blogs of some of our participants. Without all your involvement the challenge wouldn't be as much fun as it is. Thank you for the inspiration, the kindness and the friendship!

Congratulations to the following people who have won themselves a set of digital stamps for entering 20 cards or more in this year's challenge:
Due to the large volume of cards entered into the challenge this month, it's very possible that I've miscounted some of the entries. If you created and entered more than 20 cards into the November challenge and I've left you off the list, please accept my sincere apology and let me know via email so I can organise a prize for you.
Let's end the Month of Holiday Cards challenge by creating a card we love. Grab all your favourite stamps, papers and embellishments and make something just for the pure pleasure it brings you...
YOUR TURN: Create a card using your favourite techniques, images, embellishments, colours, subjects... whatever elements you love working with.
Upload your final creation HERE.
