The Christmas Kickstart Challenge #26 - Last Minute Madness!

Hi everyone, it's a little quiet here - just myself and Rudolph today. We're doing a little tidying, wrapping a few last gifts and pottering about the place.

This will be the final Christmas Kickstart Challenge before the big event, so I'd like to take a moment to say a huge thank you to everyone who has played along and joined the fun during the last twelve months. You guys have been truly amazing for keeping me company and I hope that you had a big stash of Christmas cards all ready and waiting to dip into like I did!

Thanks also to all the wonderful ladies who've been eleves this year (You can see the full alumnae here). I've loved chatting and creating with you all. Special thanks must go to Janis for coming on board as my very first elf and for all her kindness, ideas, and support; to the members of The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for their continued encouragement and support, and finally to Gail for wearing the elf hat sooooo many times, securing sponsors and for pushing me to keep going and plan ahead into 2020.

Finally, thanks to our very kind sponsors for 2019. Your generosity and support is very much appreciated and meant that some very special prizes were on offer during the year.

This is the final pre-Christmas 2019 challenge and the theme is Anything Goes, or as we're calling it:

Challenge #26 - Last Minute Madness: 
If it's Christmassy, link it up!

Any last minute makes, cards you forgot to blog or Christmas 2020 early-bird creations, just add them to the linky!

Here's one I made earlier today. You can find the details about this cute little Santa and his wobbly belly here.

Rudolph has a sweet prize for his final Random Raffle of the year....

We both hope you'll play along for the chance of winning some pretty papers and a cute snow flurry stencil.

I'll be back in a few days with the results of Challenge #25.

  2. Thank you for starting this new challenge, letting me be an elf, and not chastising me when I ran out of time to play along! Merry Christmas!

  3. Great year of challenges, Jo! I intended to enter the last challenge, but it didn't happen. Now with "anything goes" I can use that theme to enter the final challenge! Merry Christmas & I can't wait to see what you have for us next year!
