Hello, and welcome to the Christmas Craft Creations challenge for September!

This month our theme is a sketch - please make sure the theme is very clear in your project. We have lots of fantastic inspiration for you from our launch team.
And here is the sketch we are following:

We have not one, but two guest designers this month! First, we are so pleased to have Chrissie of Simply One Of A Kind joining us as a Guest Designer this month! You may remember that Chrissie used to be on our Design Team. Before stepping down she designed the sketch that we are using for this month's challenge, and I asked her if she'd like to return for the month to share her take on it. Here is the wonderful card she made:



Next we are excited to have Trina of Phamtastic Design joining us as our other Guest Designer this month! Trina was the winner of the July challenge. Here is her fun and cute take on the sketch, which is a great example of how you can rotate/flip a sketch to make it work for you:

We also have two new team members starting today. Please welcome the lovely and talented Alli and Leanne. I hope you will give them a very warm welcome. 


And here's the inspiration from the rest of the team:
