Let's Trim the Tree for Challenge #18

It's Tree Trimming time again, but before we rip open the boxes of baubles and get tangled in tinsel, I'd like to say a very big thank you to my elf for Challenge #18, Joanne from Ambrosia and Iron. It was great fun partnering with you on this one.

We had a fabulous number of entries for this challenge (thank you!) and both Joanne and I really enjoyed visiting your blogs and feeling inspired in return by what you'd created. Here's another look at the banner which inspired you all so much.

Our Top Picks are as follows:

We both love the jazz-hands placement of the cute mittens.

The bear, the scarf and that amazing background 'wowed' us both!

Such a beautiful hand-drawn snowie.

Fabulous baubles inspired by the background.

Our Winner for this challenge and Star on the Tree is:

A beautiful card with a sweet image, stunning colouring and fabulous masking.

Congratulations, hope you all enjoy your shiny blog badges.

Rudolph is here with his TWO Random Raffles. 

Firstly, let's see where the Clearly Besotted bears are moving to:

Turns out this sweet little trio are emigrating to Canada to live with Donna from Keep Calm and Snark On. I guess they'll need those hats, scarves and sweaters! Congratulations, Donna, please get in touch via the sidebar box with your address so I can connect you with your prize.

Rudolph's second Random Raffle is for the position of Elf for Challenge #2 and it's Christmas Kickstart Challenge frequent-flyer Sherri from Sherri's Flip Floppin' BlogCongratulations, Sherri, and I'd be grateful if you could also contact me via the sidebar comments form so we can get you measured for your hat!

Once again, a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who played along with this challenge, it was such fun to see how the blog header inspired you all to create your cards. Challenge #19 is now underway and myself and Elf Michele are enjoying a Scandinavian Holiday, so why not come and join us?
