Incredibly, we've almost reached the end of the 1st week of the New Year ... indeed the new decade!
I have the feeling it's going to fly past even faster than 2009 and will leave me behind if I don't get a shake on.
Last year I was a late starter over at Fab's Big Christmas Cards Challenge blog and tried, unsuccessfully, to play catch up and then, sadly, fell by the wayside near the end.  
So I promised myself that this year I would join in from the beginning and hopefully the combination of Fab's Challenges and our very own Bah! Humbug! Challenges - which start tomorrow - will make doubly sure I won't be caught short this year.  That's the theory anyway!

Fab's Challenge #1 is to use a tall card and frosty colours.  I followed his lead by using a snowman as the focal point, although mine is from the cute Patchwork Pals kit from QVC.  A simple strip of silver mirri card, embossed with snowflakes adds a little extra detail.

Now ... all I need to do is make sure I keep up to speed with both Challenges every week and my 2010 Xmas Card Box should be well stocked by December.

Oh this is so cute Max - I'm half way through one for Fab's challenge. Like you I fell by the wayside in February and then joined in again around October time. Not this year I'm going to be good.
