Welcome to the Festive Friday Challenge Blog!

There's a new kid on the challenge block, and I am so proud and excited to introduce you!

Our Objective: 

To reduce your stress during the busy rush of the holiday season. 
Yes, we are talking about Christmas! Every year, we all feel the mad dash towards the finish line, trying to get our Christmas cards, tags and other projects completed without going completely crazy. And often, we end up buried under the to-do list, wondering how to get it all done... 

The Festive Friday Challenge Blog is here to help! 

Here's how it works:

Festive Friday is a bi-weekly challenge. Every 2 weeks, we will post a new challenge using the following rotation:

Colour Challenge
Theme Challenge
Element Challenge
Trigger Challenge

Our design team will inspire you with our take on the week's challenge, and each new challenge brings a new Guest Designer to inspire you as well. Then, it's your turn to play along!

Every 2 weeks, we will post our favourites and a winner! 

So remember to become a follower, subscribe by email, whatever you like... there could be something in it for you! Join us back here for our very first challenge in just one week - on February 1, 2013!

Starting Sunday, I'll be introducing our incredibly talented design team in the days leading up to our first challenge, so I hope you'll come back to learn more about them! I am really excited about our line up of ladies, and I think you will be too.

Giveaway!
