Welcome to our last challenge of 2016.  It's Heather and I am the hostess for this challenge.  My theme is HELLO 2017 ~ New Year's theme.  I would like to see projects that represent New Year's to you.

Here is my take on it ~ traditional in both theme and colour for New Years.  Stamp is Kraftin`Kimmie ``Let`s Celebrate``.

Why not join us this week with a project of your own with a New Year`s theme.  Looking forward to seeing what you create and I will be back Tuesday with my top picks

Happy New Year to all!!!

Challenge #373 Follow the Star

Hi Everyone!
This is the week that it all happens! I hope that you're all ready.  This week's challenge is Follow the Star.  Stars are so much a part of Christmas - maybe a star atop your tree, or the starry night that baby Jesus was born.  All you need to do is have a star or two on your paper creation. I chose a stamp from Morning Star for my card.  I used a matte finish silver, embossed the manger and star and added a rhinestone to the star.  I love the simplicity of it of this card.  Please join us this week, I can't wait to see your star-studded creations!
I'll be back next Tuesday with my star picks.  In the meantime I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!

Challenge #372 (Christmas Carols/Songs) - Top Picks

Thanks so much to all who joined in our Christmas Carols and Songs challenge last week. I was looking for projects where a favourite line was used in the project somewhere and the cards below all caught my eye (and had me humming!)!

Congratulations Ladies!! Please grab the badge from the sidebar and add it to your blog!

Christmas Carols/Songs

It's Kate here and I admit to singing Christmas carols since November this year. I love the old, traditional ones that my Gran used to sing and I love the contemporary ones that I'm just learning. I thought it would be fun to incorporate Christmas carols and songs into this week's challenge and am asking that you use a line from one of your favourite Christmas carols in your sentiment (or somehow incorporate a line into your project).

For my card, I let some graphic paper do most of the work but added a little angel (although I think she might be a fairy-turned-angel with her wand!) to announce the joyful news of the first Christmas. My Christmas carol is "Joy to the World". How perfect that I had a sentiment with just those words!! Please check out what the rest of the Girlfriends have created for this challenge and then link up your own Christmas carol/song project! We can't wait to see what you create (and know that I'll be singing your songs up here in Canada)!!

Challenge # 371 Santa is Coming to Town

Amazing, ladies!  Please take your "i was featured" badge from the side bar.  Hope you all join us again tomorrow for our new challenge!

Santa's Coming to Town!

Gosh, we are one week closer to Christmas (17 days away if you are counting).  If you need another card or a few more tags or gift backs, why not join us this week in featuring Santa on your creation and sharing it with us?

Here are a few Santa tags I have made to give you a bit of inspiration and the Girlfriends have even more to get those creative juices really flowing.  Hope you'll join us!

Holiday Hugz,
