Let's Trim the Tree for Challenge #73

Welcome back to Christmas Kickstart, where it's time to do a little Tree Trimming for Challenge #73 where we played Gnome for Christmas with elfin inspiration from Gail aka Crafty Nomad. Thanks, Gail, it's always great to have you wear the elf hat!

After a slowish start we had some brilliant cards for this challenge and picking cards to showcase has been tricky, but fun - yet again, you guys created some fab cards for our theme. 

Our Top Picks for this challenge are:

#1 - Becca

Love this sweet, cozy scene!

What a beautifully made, and fabulously punny, box card!

#18 - Stef

Isn't this a great colour combo, and we love the torn edges too.

Our Winner and Tree Topper for this week is:

Isn't this just such a fun card! A cute quartet of colourful, quirky gnomies. 

Congratulations to you all, I hope you enjoy flaunting your blog badges for all the world to see!

Ooooo, look, here's Rudolph to award his Random Raffle Prize...


#7 - Chrissy... It's you!

Congratulations, Chrissy, please email me a dottypudding (at) with your snail mail address so I can connect you with your prize. 

Thanks again to everyone who played along with this challenge - you guys are just the best. Thanks also to Gail for being our elfin muse and picking this fun theme.

A new challenge is already underway and we have a brand new elf who has created a gorgeous inspiration card, so please take a look!
