Challenge 11 ... Metallic...

Believe it or not, every new challenge at Humbug Hall carries a degree of uncertainty for us Humbuggers ... at least until the first entries start to appear.   Despite our own confidence that we have set interesting and varied challenges, we occasionally have lip-licking, cheek-chewing worries that you may not actually want to join in.  
EEEEK - shudder at the thought!
BUT ... then comes the lovely 'tickle' of excitement as the comment box gradually fills and we're able to view your projects and read the feedback you leave for us.  We're very lucky that there's been plenty of 'tickling' happening so far this year and we're hoping for more of the same this week as we ask you to use 
Metallics
There's no doubt that Fiona, Judith and Ann have excelled again this week, with breathtakingly beautiful designs to tantalise your creative tastebuds and have you hotfooting it to your craft space faster than you can grab a gluegun!  As always, if you'd like to know more details about this week's DT projects, or leave some love for Ann, Judith and Fiona,  please click on the links above each card to visit their personal blogs and check out these beauties!
Ann - Just for Fun

Fiona - Leaves From My Notebook

Judith - Poppy Cottage
*********************
The deadline for this challenge is 
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 24th March 2011
 *********************
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different Christmas 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.

***Humbugger Newsflash***
Just before you pop off to play, we wanted to let you know that we've been unsuccessful in persuading Humbugger Irene to return to Humbug Hall. 
 Despite all our attempts at bribery ... corruption ... or repeated threats of throwing her to the hounds ... she's enjoying pootling at her own pace right now, which we perfectly understand, but hopefully she'll pop in to play sometimes. 
We'd like to say huge thanks for all her wonderful DT contributions and ask that you join us in wishing her continued good progress in the future.
Don't be a stranger Irene!  
We miss ya ... so come'n'play!

Ann and Max xxx

  7. Shame Irene isn't returning to the fold but great she might enter from time to time.

    Sorry peeps this isn't my best effort and, as a stamping purist it really DOES feel like cheating to use a topper, albeit a metallic one!!
