Challenge 3 - Winter Sparkle

Hi everyone! Welcome to Challenge 3 of the Crafty Calendar Challenge!

Once again, thank you so much for all your stunning entries for the weather challenge - we were so thrilled with your response, and hopefully it was a great excuse to get your Christmas stash out! Hopefully this challenge will be too! ;)



Before I give the details of the next challenge, here is the winner of Challenge 2:






Congratulations Sally! Please contact me at: gwelch96@googlemail.com, and we can sort out your £10 gift certificate for Bunny-Zoe's Crafts!

Thanks again to Nikki for the fabulous prize!




OK, onto Challenge 3. For this month's challenge, we have picked the theme of 'Winter Sparkle'. We would like to see winter-themed cards and projects, with the added option of sparkle and bling. But please remember, as always, the added option is not compulsory.
And it doesn't have to be a Christmas card if you don't want it to be! You could simply make a winter-themed birthday card, anniversary card etc.
The choice is yours!




This month, we are thrilled to be sponsored by the lovely Carole Middlehurst, who designs for Quixotic Paperie, and is offering a £20 Quixotic Paperie gift certificate!



Carole makes a range of absolutely stunning cards, and designs for Sugar Nellie and Quixotic Paperie, so you can view her cards there, or see them on her fabulous blog, Stardust Gems & Ribbon. Carole is such an inspiration and always blows me away with her gorgeous cards and projects and fantastic colouring! Thanks so much for the fantastic prize Carole, and to Quixotic Paperie for donating the voucher!




Our guest designer this month is Debbie, from Pink Poppy Craft Box. You can view her beautiful cards by clicking on the link - thanks for agreeing to join the Design Team for a month Debbie, it's been lovely to have you onboard! :)


Here are our cards for your inspiration:

Please leave a direct link to your card via the comment box below, so we can come and see your card!

You have until 8:00pm on Thursday 31st December 2009.


We won't see you until the New Year - that sounds so strange! Anyway, Merry Christmas from all of us and Happy New Year. Hope you have a fantastic time, whatever you're doing! :)
See you on Friday 1st January 2010!
