Yes, yes, I’ve left the challenge until the end of the month again. But it’s not like I haven’t been busy making other Christmas cards; at this rate, I might even be finished by the end of November!

Why do I always leave making cards for challenges until the end of the month? It’s not making the cards that’s the problem, it’s not even getting the photographs done — I’ve got that workflow sorted — it’s writing up the blog post to go with them. Actually, it’s more the “thinking about writing the blog post” that slows me down. I don’t know why, but it’s just one of those things that I procrastinate horribly about, even though it doesn’t actually take long to do when I finally put fingers to keyboard.

This card was created on 30th November; day 30 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

This was going to be my entry for this month’s progressive challenge over at Gerda Steiner Designs, but I’ve finally been caught out by last minute creations. Normally the link-up is open until the end of the last day of the month (and the timezone difference gives me a few extra hours), but this time it was already closed when I looked this afternoon.

Anyway, it’s still a cute puppy…

Ice cream & Polaroid

This was created on 19th July: day 15 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.

Like a lot of the cards I created during the colouring challenge, I didn’t start out with any real idea of what the final card would look like; I was just colouring images for the fun of colouring. This card started with the happy ice-cream and built from there.
