Day 14 - "M"

Today we've arrived at the letter "M", which means we're now half way through the alphabet! Can you believe we've come so far already? I hope you're all managing to build up a nice little stack of holiday cards.
In order to give my collection a little boost, I've decided that my "M" word is going to be multiples. Generally, I don't like to make a lot of the same card because I get bored with repetition, but I find that if I use different colours and different shapes it's not so bad.


Here are the little images all coloured and mounted onto matching paper. In the photo below, you can see that I've made them up into simple holiday cards.


YOUR TURN: Create a card using the letter "M" as your prompt.

Perfect CAS cards Beccy! And a wonderful way to boost that pile of Christmas cards this time of year. Cute little images too. I love to find techniques that will give you multiples easily. Jennifer McGuire is really good with this kind of technique. She likes to make two cards by using the negative and the positive of die cuts. She has a bunch of techniques for that. I really enjoy her blog.

Magical Multiples! (I love the one-sheet-wonder cards, it's a great way to use up those sheets of paper with little waste.)

M is also for Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Vegetables - our dinner tonight. I do believe this challenge is alphabetically appetizing, too!
Love your multiple cards. These images would make an adorable matching or memory game for in a little one's Christmas stocking. OMG, Matching and memory both start with M! I may be going Mad. But I'm having so much fun losing my Mind.

Beccy, I love these cards. I just entered a card but forgot to put what letter it was for. It is for E - Embossing. It has joy and the snowman on it. Sorry. Sarah W

Brilliant idea Beccy!

Great these little cards to add by a gift. Just like you I don't like to make more than one time the same card. It just make a selfmade card so unique when there's only one of it.

These are just fabulous. I've also been making multiples for Christmas as I find this is the easiest way when I leave it to the end to make them!
