The Christmas Kickstart Challenge #19 - Scandinavian Holiday

Welcome to Challenge #19 - we really are speeding through the year!

Thanks to everyone who played along in the previous challenge; it was great to see so many of you inspired by the blogheader.

For this challenge I'm thrilled to be joined by the lovely Michele from I card Everyone.

My Photo

I'm a huge fan of Michele's fabulous cards and knew I wanted her to be the elf for this challenge as I thought she'd have a ball with the theme... turns out I was totally right!

Our Challenge for this fortnight is:
Scandinavian Holiday

Anyone need smelling salts? I know I swooooooned when I first saw these.
You can also see a further card, and read the details about all her creations by checking out Michele's blog post here.

My cards

I barely need an excuse to go for a red and white colour combo on a Christmas card.

It turns out that these gorgeous little images look good in multi-colours too!

If you like these cute images from Hero Arts you'll be sad to hear that the set is long since discontinued. However, Rudolph has contacts and is giving away a Scandinavian Holiday set as his Randon Raffle Prize for this challenge! Go Rudolph, what a guy!


Please come and join Michele and I to play in our Scandinavian Holiday Challenge.
