Christmas CAROLS Challenge

Click >HERE< for the list of badge winners for our Santa is Coming to Town challenge.

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." 
~Buddy {from the movie ELF}

 It's a wonderful time of the year! Busy but still a wonderful time! I especially love listening to CHRISTMAS CAROLS on Pandora as I work on my Christmas projects.  There are so many wonderful songs--new and old and since I'm sure one or more of them surely inspire your crafting creations, I picked CHRISTMAS CAROLS as our theme for this last Cards in Envy challenge of 2014.  We are looking for cards that have been INSPIRED by a CHRISTMAS CAROL.  For this challenge, please be sure to share in your post what song or carol inspired your card creation. And as always, your card must be an A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") AND flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

And now, the cards by our fabulous, talented Cards in Envy Designers!  Each card was inspired by a Christmas Carol as listed underneath their name.  Please visit each designers' blog for more details about their creations and leave them some comment love.  Just click on the blog name/link beside their name to head over to their blog.

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on their favorite cards which will be announced on our blog  the Tuesday or Wednesday following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS which is the card that receives the most votes from the Designers and each Designer will pick one card as their favorite for  IN THE MAILBOX. That means we may have up to 10 In the Mailbox cards for a challenge.  We decided to go with this fun method as each Designer has their own unique style and preference.  Each chosen may grab one of our fun badges for their blog! The badges for the challenge will be in the winners post following the close of the challenge after all the Designer votes are in.  The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.  

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE.  Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment.  PLEASE NOTE:  NO SQUARE CARDS   Challenge ends Sunday,  January 4, 2015  at 6 p.m. Central Time.

IMPORTANT! Please make sure you are linking directly to your card POST and not just to your blog Home page.  When we click on your link below, it must take us to your card for this challenge, not just to your home page.  Links that do not go directly to a card for the current challenge will be deleted.
