X for Xerox.

Hi Crafters, Dorte here.

I'm going to guide you through this fortnight's challenge.

We don't have so many letters left!

(Except those of us using the Scandinavian alphabet,
we have Æ,Ø and Å also.
Strange letters for most of you, they don't count here!)

So today's letter is

X for Xerox!

It's not as hard as it sounds, I promise.

We want you to xerox one of our cards.

In other words CASE a card made by one of the
DT for any ABC Christmas Challenge in 2011.

Take inspiration from the layout, use the same technique,
or colours, or papers or the same image if you have it.

In the sidebar to the right you can
easily find links to all of this year's challenges.

In other words, what you have to do is to look through this year's challenges
and find a DT card you want to CASE.

When writing your post, we would like you to give
us a link to or a photo of the card you have xerox'ed,
so we can see where, and from whom your inspiration came.

Once again we have two fabulous sponsors

Digital Delights has an awesome selection of
digital images, papers and more.

and one random winner will receive 3 digital images of their choice.

Bugaboo Stamps with their funny and cute characters.

One lucky random winner can pick 7 free images.

Time to show you what we have Xerox'ed for this challenge.
I hope we can give you some inspiration.

We are so lucky having visitors from the Bugaboo DT.
Warm welcome to Cely and Jen joining in as Guest Designers.

I think they will appreciate some lovely words from you all.

Cely Smith

Cely has used Dorte's card for the H for Hotspot challenge as her inspiration.

Jen Leeflang
Jen's ard is based on Hedi's W for Winter Sport card.

And from the ABC Christmas Design Team:

Carissa xeroxed this card made by Lols
for the B for Black and White challenge.

Carol has used the layout from Samantha's V for Vintage.

Delphine's card is based on Carissa's Q for Quote card.

Dorte used Helen's layout from G for Girly.

Heidi CASE'd Lacey's N for No Nonsense card.

Helen made a card similiar to Carissa's A for Anything Goes.

Lacey xeroxing Heidi's W for Wintersport card.

Lols card is based on Carissa's C for Clean & Simple.

Samantha have used elements from Delphine's I for Indingo challenge.

Now it's your turn.
Make a cup of coffee or tea, and browse through this year's challenges so far.

There is a wonderful selection of cards.
I'll bet you can find one or more to CASE.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with.
