13th Nov Gorgeous Gifts (Countdown to Christmas 2)

Hello!

Thanks you for sharing your lovely creations using last week's Inspiration board, once again, sorry for the error on the opening date for entries - hopefully you were able to add your links once that was sorted out.  Rest assured the info will be double-checked this week!

This week we have an 'Anything Crafty' Themed Challenge for you.

Gorgeous Gifts

It simply means that we'd love to see anything on a theme of Gifts this week.
So it could be a card featuring parcels all wrapped up, a gift you've made for a friend, or how about a card and gift combined? This could be a bookmark, gift card or a little chocolatey treat as an added extra on your card.

Here's what the team have made this time

November Elemental Inspiration Challenge (Countdown to Christmas 1)

Hello there Crafters!
Thank You to those who joined in with Jenny's 'Fireworks' challenge last week - it was fun, wasn't it?

This week we're kicking off our Countdown to Christmas series and over the next few weeks we hope to inspire you to get crafty with a variety of projects and themes.
Some will be cards,Some other papercraft projects, and some will be for absolutely anything you want to make and share.
Although the themes will be Christmassy, that doesn't mean you can't 'think outside the box' and make non-Christmas projects too!

We'll stick to cards this week, and as usual our first challenge of the month is our
 Elemental Inspiration Challenge.  
 For November we're kicking off our Countdown to Christmas with a mood-board stuffed with loads of ideas for you to choose from.
 Remember, you just need to pick a minimum 3 elements from the picture to use when making your card, The colour palette counts as one element

 Here's what the team has made this time:

Fireworks

Hi everyone, it's Jenny here and let me start by saying a big thank you to everyone who shared their spooktacular makes last week.  We had such a fabulous selection of projects ranging from the super cute to the spooky and creepy!  

I'm so happy to be setting your challenge this week for the first time! 

Next week in the UK it's Guy Fawkes day or Bonfire Night on the 5th of November so in honour of this I would love to see your Fireworks themed projects this time round.

  In case you haven't heard of Guy Fawkes, he was part of the Gunpowder plot in 1605 which attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament .  The plot failed as someone warned the government and they caught them in the act and executed them for their crimes.  Traditionally we would celebrate by going to a firework display where we would burn a "guy" on a bonfire.  For those outwith the UK don't panic, nobody is actually harmed, it's just a fake!  When I was a kid we used to get an old shirt and pair of trousers and tie the ankles and wrists with string before stuffing him with scrunched up newspapers and adding a balloon head.  So every year we remember poor Guy and his friends and their failed plot to bring down the government!
