FFC39 - Winner's Post

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!

Congratulations, ladies - please email Ardyth at for your blog badges.

Join us tomorrow for Festive Friday Challenge #40!

FFC38 - Winners' Post

Wow! I admit that I thought that the black-white-craft colour scheme would make this a difficult challenge, but you all proved me wrong! What an amazing gallery - every single card was festive and inspiring!  Once again, we had a very, very difficult time choosing just 3 cards to highlight, but here they are:


Pam Sparks: We loved Pam's use of die cuts to make this festive, dramatic card!


Nancy Penir: The plaid background and stitched 'cookies' were a fun, cozy take on the inspiration.

Robyn: The simple, modern tree and snowflake pattern are the perfect backround for Robyn's punny sentiment!

Congratulations ladies - please email Ardyth at for your blog badges!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow - FFC39 will be here waiting for you!
