The card above is from a challenge called Christmas Cookies. You guessed it, the challenge was about getting Christmas Cookies on your project. That was no problem for me as I had this image already colored and trimmed out on my desk from an "almost project" a few weeks ago.
This card was for a challenge called The Christmas Song. The challenge was to use something on your card from the lyrics of the song by the same name. I used mistletoe on my card for the line that starts "Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe". Simple scoring set off the bottom border of mistletoe.
This last card is from a challenge called Home Alone. The object here was to make a clean and simple card with one image and one embellishment. I may have fudged a little on this one. I tried to just get away with the washi tape as my one embellishment, but it looked too plain. I colored an adhesive backed rhinestone heart with a Copic marker and added it to my sentiment. After that, it felt done.
I think the next VSN should be in a few months. I know that I will be playing along and I hope that you will too.
