Christmas Kickstart Challenge #28 - RED!

Hey there, welcome to Christmas Kickstart; it's time for a new challenge!

A big thank you to everyone who played along in the first challenge of 2020. Gail and I were blown-away by how many of you paraded your penguins! We'll be back in a few days to trim the tree.

This month I'm delighted to be joined by the wonderfully talented, and very witty, Samantha from CoyKoi Crafting

"A busy mother of three, (one human, two feline) Samantha enjoys hiding out in the bathroom eating her secret stashes of candy while watching Netflix on her phone. When she's not busy feeding her brood, breaking up squabbles, or actively avoiding housework you can find her making cards; her beloved label maker at her side."

Our theme for this month of love and romance is RED!

Yes, we'd love to see the colour of all things romantic featured on your 
Christmas cards for the whole of February.

Here's Samantha's card - how gorgeous is this! Love all the gold against the red tones. You'll find all the details of how Samantha made her card on her blog.

Here's my very CAS take on the theme:

As always, Rudolph is on hand with a Random Raffle Prize and this month he is offering two gorgeous dies from Sue Wilson.

Hope you'll come and play!
