Let's Trim the Tree for Challenge #85

It's Tree Trimming Time here at Christmas Kickstart as we say a very big thank you to our lovely April elf, Helen from Made by Helen.

Thanks so much, Helen, it was great fun partnering with you for this challenge.

We had thirty-five wonderful cards for our 
Santa and his Sidekicks Challenge
and so many of you came up with witty and inventive ways to play our theme!

Our Top Picks for this challenge are:

#5 - Linda

We both fell head-over-heels with this cute couple.

#20 - Marcia

A gorgeous, CAS design and so beautifully coloured too.

Isn't this card joyful!

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

We loved Bonnie's attention to detail with this sweet card.

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

Rudolph's Random Raffle Prize is this cute lil guy from Colorado Craft Company... 


Our WINNER is: 

#30 - Suzanne H. - It's you!
