Hey LIMettes!

Yay! It's One Layer Card time again, or should that be a groan? Never a groan, surely! You are all totally brilliant at making one layer cards now so this challenge should be a breeze for you all. It's a great one to start adding to, or getting ahead with, the cards we all need to send come the end of the year. So get those festive hats on, sprinkle a little glitter and let's see your One Layer Christmas magic. 


To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages.Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.


We're joined by our May winner, the fabulous Jenny Martin from the My Paper Epiphany blog as our guest designer this week.

  7. I am sorry to say that my entry (No. 58) is not valid as I blithely kept adding challenges to my list and it wasn't until I had published and joined all the challenges that I realised you have a rule that says entry into only five including yours and I had obvious exceeded that number, so please ignore or delete if you wish, and I have disabled the link. I will in future engage my brain better and remember this for future challenges. There are some wonderful entries and great inspiration from the DT too. x
