On the 2nd Day of Christmas

Ho! Ho! Ho! and here we go again! Welcome back to day two of our advent inspiration here at ChickenSoup. We will bring you a recipe a day from Dec 1st through to Dec 12th and you then have until January 6th 2011 to share your creations using the link button at the base of each days posting. We will be doing some random giveaways through the duration of our festivities so be sure to tell your crafting friends, spread the word, post on your blogs and who knows when we will be making a random prize donation?

So what do we have for you for day 2?? How about CHRISTMAS CARDS and today we welcome Alana Harrod as our guest designer who created not one but two projects inspired by our Christmas Card recipe.

Will you create a card for this challenge, some gift tags inspired by the colours of the image or maybe a way to display your cards. Be sure to share with us using the link at the end of this post.


These beautiful projects were created by Alana


A pair of fun cards from Clare using Stamping up products


A card by Lousette perfectly reflecting our wintery spell here in the UK this week!


A lovely card from Kate inspired by the tree display in the recipe

And last up from our designers today - a layered card from Ann
