12 Days of Christmas Inspirations, Day 4: Let it Snow Card
It's Freebie Friday!

November 'Take the Challenge!' with Mou

Welcome to the November edition of Take the Challenge with Mou!

I feel that creative challenges help us experiment and learn new things. Challenges can help us get unstuck from creative ruts. They can also inspire us to create in ways we would not have thought of otherwise. So, I decided to take a few creative challenges myself and thought you might like to play along.

Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. The following Monday, we will pick THREE winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that week's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

Today's challenge is themed: Create a project that relates to something you are thankful for! Being November, I'm thinking Thanksgiving. Every year, I do a project where I list the things I'm thankful for. Last year, I created this project, "Grateful, Every Day" for Big Picture Classes.

And this year, I have created small canvas panels by decoupaging embossed cardstock and coloring them with gelatos and big brush markers and decorated them with feathers, words, etc.

This was a so much fun to do!

Thanks for your inspiration and for those of all the talented people at DMC! I am thinking of applying for the design team! It would be such an honor!

I was so excited to find this challenge blog - and that was only yesterday, so I wonder if I made it in time! I did not find the info on what time zone you observe, but it's before midnight for me, so I'm hopeful! If I happened to win the prize, I'd like the red and blue ones, please.
