Christmas Kickstart Challenge Reminder - Challenge #65

It's Reminder time here at Christmas Kickstart and we're playing with a fun theme...

Our elfin inspiration for this month comes from the very lovely Gail over at Crafty Nomad.

Here's what Gail made for the challenge:

I just love this card and MUST add that fun image to My Wish List. I like that Gail made a shaped card and I admire her positioning of the snowman/cat combo, which is perfect inside the double frame.

I don't have too many shaped-dies, but I wanted to make my Inspired by... card a shaped card, so here's the result!

You can find out all the details by visiting my blog here

Rudolph has done us proud with a gorgeous little stamp set as his Random Challenge Prize for August. 

There are currently #35 gorgeous cards in our gallery for this challenge - Christmas cardmaking has begun big time across Cardland, so why not join the fun and come play along!
