Let's Trim the Tree for Challenge #86

Yes, it's Tree Trimming Time again here at Christmas Kickstart! A big thank you to everyone who joined the fun as we Played with Plaid this month. We had some GREAT entries for this challenge!

Thanks also to our last minute replacement elf, your friend and mine Gail from CraftyNomad! Gail very kindly jumped-in to cover our guest slot when Jen Nelson developed Covid. Thankfully, Jen, is now very much recovered.


We had some really glorious cards for this challenge, and we both have many favourites from the twenty-six entries in the gallery. You guys all rock!

Our Top Picks for this challenge are:

#10 - Arlene

We both love Arlene's big text card!

How sweet to make her card look like a beautifully wrapped gift.

#4 - Tina

We love that Tina grabbed this challenge and made it her own
with her sweet and simple plaid, fade-out background and adorable snowman.

Our Winner and Star on the Tree for this week is:
So elegant and that plaid stamping is dah bomb!

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

Rudolph has chosen a gorgeous stamp and stencil package for his Random Raffle prize for this challenge. And our lucky winner is...


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

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

Once again a very big thank you to Gail, and to all of you who played along with this challenge. I am always in awe of how many of you join our challenges, and this is especially true during the Spring and Summer months when Christmas and the Holiday season seem so far away. Thank you to you all!

There's a new challenge underway with another super-talented cardmaker, so why not come and play along!
