Let's trim the Tree for Challenge #81

I'm enjoying some very welcome Winter sunshine whilst typing this post - which is an unexpected surprise and a real boost to help combat the January blues. How is everyone? I very much hope you are all well and settling back into your routines after the celebrations.

As always, here at Christmas Kickstart, we ended the year with an Anything Goes style challenge. Thanks to all of you that played along. It was great to see our regular players and also to meet some new friends too. An amazing #145 cards were entered into this challenge! With so many stunning cards in the gallery it's been really difficult to pick just a few to showcase, but here goes...

The Top Picks for this challenge are:

#10 - Tee

A sweet Santa!

I just love how all the elements of Becca's card work together so well.

Leslie's faux step card is gorgeous and so much fun - especially the inside sentiment!

Our Winner and Star on the Tree for this week is:

I just love Fran's attention to detail with this deceptively simple card.

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

Here's Rudolph with his Random Raffle Winner... 


#94 - Suze... It's you!

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

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who played along. There's a new challenge already underway and we have a fabulous returning elf, so please head on over and join the fun!
