Christmas is Coming

Hello everyone, I hope you've been enjoying our lovely weather but it looks like autumn has now landed properly and it's turning that little bit chilly.  

Thanks you so much for your entries to our last challenge and I know it's not going to be an easy choice for Wendy but I'm sure she'll manage,  I'll let you know next time who she couldn't resist choosing.

Caz has chosen her favourites for our Happily Ever After challenge and here they are;

#1 Sue T
Beautiful creation combining CD material and stamping.

#5 Ellie Wee
A wonderfully romantic card combing CD material and dies.

#9 Pamela
A super cute, elegant card.
Sue you know what to do, get in touch and claim your prize and Caz will get it into the post to you very soon.

I just want to remind you all that you don't have to just make a card or even make the whole project from a cd, just use an element and the rest can be anything, stamping, digis, decoupage and you can make anything too.  We would love to see your projects such as wall art, boxes, atc's etc., as well as our mainstay of cards so please join in and get creative.
This week it's my turn to choose a theme and as we are now on the downward spiral towards Christmas I decided to be a bit selfish and combine the challenge with one of my projects, the team have done you proud this time so hopefully you'll like what we have done and I'll start with my project.

So there you have our versions of Christmas is Coming and hopefully it will help kick start your imagination so you can join in with us.
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.We look forward to seeing you during the week and … please have fun, see you in two weeks!
