 Wow! MTTCC had 22 entries for Theme #42 Nontraditional Christmas colors!

Our submissions numbers declined during April through June and have slowly been climbing upward. So thanks to all who have been taking time to craft Christmas with us!

Top 3 Picks were selected by me, DT member Becca, as my turn in the rotation. 

In no particular significance, I picked 3 that appealed with their unusual choices: pink with copper, purple/lavender, and bold yellows.

 #18= Diny

#9= Diane A.

and #1= Vikki

Congrats, ladies! Your Christmas cards are stunning, unexpected, and marvelously creative!

The other submissions were outstanding and the decision-making process was a tough one. Thanks for making it difficult!!! :)
