Home Sweet Home with Beryl

Hello again and another week gone, who said it will soon be Christmas? Yes well it will be and I'm now starting to panic as the cards should all be done and sorted for posting but they're not even all done yet!
With the time of year being present in our minds we are aware that it's sometimes a struggle to keep up with challenges so for December we are giving you two weeks to play with, this challenge will run until 14th December so no excuses!

Last week we had F is for..... and you all rose to the challenge really well so thank you for that, it is surprising just how many things we can incorporate with this challenge and inventive as ever you didn't let us down, now it's up to Caz to try to choose her favourites, I don't envy her.

I had the task of choosing my favourites last week for my challenge of Simply Square and you did make it hard for me but after having all the tabs open and going backwards and forwards I dwindled it down to the required three but it could quite easily have been top five or more! Anyway my choices are;

1st Number 18 - Misty's Mum This just jumped out at me and was actually the easiest to choose.
2nd Number 3 - Pamela, quite a lot of work gone into this, I also liked her Christmas card but she couldn't have two spots!
3rd Number 1 - Shaz, another one with plenty going on and I love House Mouse!

So you know what to do, Gloria give us a shout on the blog email and I'll sort a little something out for you by way of a prize.

Now onto this week, Beryl has chosen Home Sweet Home and once again this can be a multitude of things, so think outside the box and just think what it conjures up for you. The team have had a great time with this so hopefully it will give you a little inspiration to get you going.

Please link to your post and not your blog, I know we say this every week but we still have people who link to the blog which means we have to trawl through posts to find the entry at times.  Please, please use something from a CD somewhere in the making of your project and give the CD credit. We still get the odd entry that has not had a CD used in the making and although they are lovely to see they won't be considered for receiving any prizes on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
Finally the most important bit - Have Fun!

  10. Great variety and skill from the DT. I had hoped to join in but, being madly busy at the moment, what time I've had for crafting has been focused on Christmas cards - and I couldn't seem to find anything Christmassy to fit the theme. Hopefully I'll be back next time, Marina
