The Christmas Kickstart Challenge #25 - The Christmas Story


Welcome to Challenge #25! Are we feeling Christmassy yet? Not long now until the big day is finally here - thank goodness we've all been making Christmas cards for so long! Just need the time to write them now...

This is a very special challenge; first of all I'm delighted to welcome back the lovely Janis from Her Peaceful Garden who was my very first elf all the way back in January.

 

The second reason this feels special is because of the theme:

Challenge #25 - The Christmas Story

What better challenge as we count down to that most special of days, remember the reason for the season and celebrate the birth of that very special baby.

Janis has created a glorious special-fold card in blue, cream and gold for this challenge.


Just look at that stunning inside with the sky filled with stars above that beautiful manger scene. You can visit Janis's blog here to find out how she created her beautiful card.


Here's my card for the challenge. You can find the details on my blog.


We'd love to see your Stars, Wise Men, donkeys, shepherds, angels, cribs and anything that links to the Christmas story.


Rudolph is cock-a-hoop to announce that we have a very special prize
 for his Random Raffle for this challenge.
Jane's Doodles

The lovely Jane from Jane's Doodles is offering a $25.00 voucher. Jane has a gorgeous range of stamps, including some beautiful Christmas images and I'm very grateful that she's agreed to sponsor Challenge #25. BTW, she currently has some of her Christmas sets on sale!

Hope you will join us and play along!
