A Month of Holiday Cards Challenge

Welcome to the Seventh Annual
Month of Holiday Cards Challenge

For the past six years, this challenge has heralded the start of the Christmas season for me. I love all the wonderful cards and projects that are entered into the challenge, they are all fabulously inspiring, but my favourite part is definitely the feeling of community that seems to rise with this challenge. I enjoy visiting all the blogs, reading the comments and seeing all the positive vibes you leave for each other. It really kindles my Christmas spirit!

For those new to the challenge, we have a few guidelines to keep things on track:

  • Each day throughout November, I'll post an A-Z letter prompt and card idea to get you inspired. You then use the prompt to create your own holiday themed project, take a photo of it and upload it to the challenge. Remember though, there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, which means you'll find a few random challenges thrown into the mix!
  • Follow the link at the bottom of any of this month's posts to upload your creations to the challenge. There's no limit on how many cards or projects you create but they must be holiday themed (any holiday) and created during the month of November 2019.
  • All the projects submitted will be eligible for prizes throughout the entire month, so get your cards in early!
  • Store credit won during any Beccy's Place challenge is only redeemable for digital stamps. All values are in Australian dollars.
  • Entries can be uploaded to the challenge from any hosted site including blogs, online galleries, Google photos, etc. If you do not have access to a hosted site, please feel free to email your photos to me and I will add them from the Beccy's Place Guest blog.
  • Beccy's Place designers may enter the monthly challenge but are not eligible to win prizes.

I am so excited. I have been waiting for this all year. It is my favorite time of year to get all my holiday cards made. Thanks so much Beccy.

Suzanne Harkinson said...

I can't wait to see all the lovely creations entered into the challenge. I was a good girl and made Christmas cards all year so I'm not under any pressure to creat. Maybe Santa will leave me an extra something in my stocking ;)

NickScrapShack said...

I hope I can get the time this year to play.... If I get up extra early it may work. So.... I didn't realize any holiday would work... is that any holiday throughout the year? SO.... I could do a Valentine card? Oh the wheels are turning. It has been a crazy busy year and I would love to settle in and just make some cards for a while... Thanks Beccy

Suze said...

I have so been looking forward to this. Looking forward to seeing your first card Beccy.

A great challenge to get some more Chrissie cards made. Thank you Beccy once again, your Australian business is a credit to you and I love that you sell digis too.

Bunny said...

Apparently I'm late to the game, y'all. I just entered my card and found out it's not today where the challenge is. It's already tomorrow. Now, am I going to be late again tomorrow? I am glad to see that my friend Kitty won today along with some others. Congratulations, y'all. See y'all tomorrow unless today is already tomorrow. Hmmm............[Bunny]`

Barbara Godden said...

I'm even later than Bunny, just saw a blog post from Fit Kitty and I'm in need of more Christmas cards and it's a fun way to build the stash.

Jenn Paterson said...

Is it to late to join into this challenge? I don't have a blog so I am not sure were I would post my finished card. Thanks Jenn

Beccy said...

Hi Jenn. Nope, you're not too late, the challenge runs all month and you can submit your cards at any time. No worries about the blog either, you can email photos of your project to me and I'll post them on my guest blog and link them to the challenge for you. Looking forward to seeing what you create!

jaybea said...

I have just been told about your month of holiday cards what a great idea I am definitely going to do this looks fun

Dorothy S said...

This has been a crazy fall with medical issues and travel to a wedding, but I think I am ready to join in. I have participated before, but I can't remember.. is some form of stamping required, and do we need to use a Beccy's image?

Beccy said...

Hi Dorothy! It's good to see you. I'm glad things have settled down a bit and you now have the chance to play along.
It's "no" to both questions you asked... no stamping is required and you don't need to use Beccy's Place images. This month is all about getting those cards done and having some fun!

Dorothy S said...


Thanks, Beccy


KT Fit Kitty said...

I had to come over to see what the final count is - 1,166 - Woohoo! I'm excited about the success of this challenge and how it keeps growing! Congratulations, Beccy! It just shows how much you've inspired so many of us! I enjoyed myself very much! Thank you!!!
