Hello and welcome to Crafty Calendar's December Challenge!

Are you all ready for Christmas? Not many shopping says left!
Thank You to everyone who entered last months challenge!
 Wow..we had record breaking 532 entries! Each and every entry was stunning. What a talented bunch you are! Sorry if we never got round to you all to leave a comment. 

Its time to choose a winner from last month and thankfully we always draw this using Random.org!  The winner will recieve "Letters to Santa" and "Eden's 2nd Christmas" Digi Stamps from Elisabeth Bell

The winner is.........Helene from Helene - Les Creations d' Helene

With this gorgeous card....

Congrats, its beautiful, so soft and pretty!  If you email me at lynne.h72@sky.com i will get your prize organised for you!
There is a winner badge in the sidebar for you to put on your blog! Thanks for joining in with our challenge and thanks to Elisabeth Bell for the sponorship and to Lynda for organising it!

Now to the Top Picks!...This was near impossible, we seriously found this so hard as every creation is stunning.

Congratulations girls, Your creations are stunning!
Please feel free to grab the Top Pick's badge. You can find it in the sidebar. Thank you for joining in with our challenge!

Ok, let get down to business! Our challenge this month is ...

"Cold and Frosty"

This can be any type of craft...cards, scrapbook pages, altered items, a sewing project, handmade gifts...if you made it and it fits our theme then come let us see what you have created!

We hope you understand that we have decided that the DT are going to be having December off from commenting. We all are so busy with everything on the run up to Christmas and i also feel that it would be nice to let the girls spend this special time of year with their family without the worry of catching up online. We will be popping on to check out your gorgeous creations and everyone will be entered into the draw as always.
 We will be back to normal working order in January and hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Our sponsor this month is the amazing Crafty Ribbons!!

The winner of this challenge will win some beautiful ribbons...we can never have too many ribbons!! 

Here is some Cold and Frosty inspiration from the Design Team!

Firsty we have to say a sad goodbye to Tammy! Tammy has been with us for 2 years and is such a lovely person aswell as a talented crafter so she is going to be missed. Thank You Tammy for everything! 



Now its over to you! We can't wait to see your creations!

Here is the usual reminders.....
Please make sure you leave a link to your blog post and not just your blog and that 'Crafty Calendar Challenge' is linked in your post. Please only link to new entries as it isn't fair to back link to older posts.
