Let's Trim the Tree for Christmas Kickstart Challenge #76 - Gingerbread Treats

It's time to Trim that Tree for Challenge #76!

We were in lovely company for this challenge as our elf was Carol from just me:c. Thanks for partnering with me for this challenge, Carol, it's been such fun.

Our theme was Gingerbread Treats and after a slowish start the gallery filled up and up! We had some gorgeous cards for this challenge  - thank you so much to everyone who played along. Picking just a few cards to showcase has been really difficult, but this is what we came up with...

Our Top Picks for this challenge are:

#14 - Meg

Such a great design, and a fab idea to use silver and white! We love this!

We both swooned over these adorable cookie tins.

Just look at this little guy - beautifully coloured 
AND paired with itty, bitty gingerbread patterned paper!

Our Winner and Tree Topper for this week are:

We both fell head over heels for this guy with his latte in hand!


Such a beautifully coloured card with so much pretty detail.

I'm sure you'll all agree that the standard of entries for this challenge was just off the scale wonderful!

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

And Rudolph's Random Raffle winner for this challenge is:
