MTTC #497 DT inspiration X 2 cards for other December celebrations theme

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!  This personal blog posting showcases my design team commitment projects for MTTC (or My Time To Craft). I decided to do 2 different interpretations since there are lots of iconic shapes and images connected to December's other celebrations. 

My Time To Craft challenge blog's Theme #497 has a new theme of  "other December celebrations--include a Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or New Year's Eve iconic image(s)". The competition runs from December 16-29, 2022

Card #1 = Countdown 23 New Year's Eve card

Some vendor notes for Card #1=

*Becky Higgins Project Life = triangle, striped circle, and watch die-cuts

*wishing you well stamp = Hampton Arts

*teal/green alpha tile stickers = Freckled Fawn

*white diamond cut glitter cardstock = Pen + Gear

*pink and white checked gingham paper = Hot Off The Press/ Paper Wishes website

*gray and white buffalo plaid cardstock = The Paper Studio

*remaining items = stash 


Card #2= God Is Light (using candles/light image that's part of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa) =

Some vendor notes:
*the "God is light" plastic cling and the text strips = Creative Devotion
*the layered cross sticker is either Hallmark or American Greetings
*the pumpkin squash color cardstock is a A2 size flat card base with envelope = Darice
*the patterned papers are old and from the same paper pad...possibly DCVW--?
