Christmas Kickstart Challenge #66 - Home for the Holidays


I'm delighted to be welcoming Tina from Treebug as our elf for this month! 

"Hi. I am Tina and I live in Slovenia, a country well known for its stunning nature. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have one daughter and two sons. I started cardmaking in 2010 when my husband bought me my green Cuttlebug and the rest is history. I don’t have any specific style, I just love playing with papers and trying different styles and new techniques. You can find more about me on my blog (http://www.treebug.org/). The name incorporates my passion for the environment (»tree«) and card making (»bug« is short for my green Cuttlebug). I was very happy  when Jo asked me to be a Guest Elf for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge because I love making Christmas cards. Thank you so much! I look forward to seeing all your Christmas inspiration in the gallery."

Tina has chosen a lovely theme for us to play with in September 

Challenge #66 - Home for the Holidays

We'd love to see cards with houses, homes, fireside scenes, cityscapes - whatever the phrase conjures up for you!

Here's what Tina made to get us started...

Isn't this just a beaut! What a great colour combo, and I love the sweet Winter scene and Tina's choice of embellishments. Take a look at Tina's blog for all the info on her gorgeous card.

It's hard to believe we're playing the same challenge, but here's what I made...

Just shows how much choice there is with our theme! You can find all the details of how I made my card on my blog here.

The lovely Rudolph is here with a lovely prize for his Random Raffle

Nice choice, Rudolph! I love that spaghetti beard, and who doesn't need a Santa Hat, cute glasses and some Ho's in their craft stash??!! 

Tina and I hope you'll come and play along with our challenge. Don't forget to read through the rules before entering.
