Let's trim the Tree for Challenge #77

If you're thinking that this post is slightly later than usual then you'd be right as I've been enjoying some late Summer sun in Portugal! 

Our lovely elf for Challenge #77 was Di Wray and together we invited you to come Elfing Around with us during August! Thanks so much, Di, it's always such a joy to partner-up with you!

We had some really gorgeous entries for our challenge and choosing a few cards to showcase has been really tricky. 

Our Top Picks for this challenge are:

#3 - Kate

Isn't this just so much fun! A beautiful CAS card with a lovely touch of whimsy. 

So colourful, and so beautifully made, 
and just look at that sweet couple under the mistletoe!

#19 - Bonnie

We both love Bonnie's adorable CAS elf!

Beautifully coloured and so sweet!

Our Winner and Tree Topper for this week is:

Isn't this just the sweetest scene? Val's put in so much work to create her lovely card.

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

Our Random Raffle was slightly different for this month as Di very kindly donated this fun prize! Thanks so much, Di, you really are so kind!


#6 Helen - It's you!

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

Thanks again to Di, and congratulations to our Tree Topper and Top Picks! Thanks to everyone who entered this challenge - it's not easy making Christmas/Holiday cards in the summer months and I really appreciate all our gorgeous entries for our elfin challenge.

Our current challenge with the lovely Kimberley is still ongoing, so why not come along and join the fun???  And please don't forget that in October we'll be playing a very special challenge to remember our dear friend Janis Woolbright. 

Please share this badge on your blog to spread the news.
