Challenge 17 - Christmas Food...

You all seemed to love our snowflake challenge and you certainly provided us with loads of wonderful inspiration and some great ideas for the future.

The first challenge of a new month means we dig deep into our wee Santa Sack for a prize ... and just look what we pulled out this time for one lucky person!

A fantastic Spellbinders Holiday Lights Borderabilities. YOWZA!

Sooooooo ... we'd better tell you what the theme is for this week so you can get cracking and create.


Now don't panic and run away screaming just yet ... take a deep breath and think about all the different tummy treats we indulge in over the festive season.

What about Christmas pudding ... candy canes ... chocolate snowmen ... Christmas cake ... mince pies ... shortbread stars (lovely with a wee dram) ... gingerbread shapes and of course ... Christmas just isn't Christmas without Turkey and all the trimmings! No doubt you can think of plenty more scrummy-yummy ideas for our latest challenge.

We are really excited this week to announce the first of our Monthly Guest Designers, so please show some warm appreciation to Steph from The Crafty Duck blog for joining us for our first challenge of May and sharing her super delicious card with us.

As always, if you click on the linked names below you will find out more about the techniques and supplies we have used for our cards, and we always appreciate any comments you'd like to make.


The deadline for this challenge is

12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 13th May 2010

You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.
We are salivating already in anticipation of your
"Food Glorious Food" creations.

Ann, Irene, Max
