Have you finished your Christmas cards?

If not, then we have a new challenge to inspire you to finish them up.

For everyone who is finished, well, here is something to keep you busy!

Thanks to everyone who played along with our last challenge.  The winner will be posted on Sunday, so be sure to stop back and see if you are the lucky one!

Challenge #4 has both a sketch and color challenge to choose from.  This challenge runs through December 25, 2014 at midnight EST.

As promised, here is a sketch without circles on it!  Of course you can always use a circle in place of one of the rectangles.  Remember, it is okay to swap out shapes, we just need to see the basic sketch on your creation.



Next is the color challenge.  The photo may be all about Christmas, but those colors can be used for any time of year!YNS Color Challenge 4
