FFC40 - Winners Post

We are one more challenge closer to Christmas! A huge gallery of beautiful, shimmery creations - we love them all! Here are 3 that really caught our eye:


 Torico – We love how soft this card is and Torica decorated the inside of the card too through the delicate window. Amazing!


Nancy – The intricate dies on Nancy’s card are beautiful.  We love all the pretty shimmer too!

 Rosemary – The washi behind the die cuts grounds the wreath and provides the perfect extra touch. 

Congratulations ladies! Email Ardyth at for your blog badges!

Join us here after midnight tonight for the next challenge!

It's that time again - that time where we agonize while while we try to decide who to name as winner and shout-outs. We love that you all make it so, so hard for us!


Nancy's rich colours and touches of sparkle make this card really stand out!


Kim's clever collage card brought many elements together perfectly!

Deepti's bold poinsettias are beautifully shaded!
