Trim the Tree

We loved seeing your bags and boxes for last week's challenge - what a treat they were - even before they were filled with other treats...

This week its back to cards and a challenge called
Trim the Tree
You don't just need to think 'Christmas Trees' for this, we'd love to see all sorts of trees.  
Could be just one or two or perhaps a whole forest of them!

Here's what the design team have made this week

Gift Bag or Box - Step Away From the Cards no 1

Thank you so much for sharing your cards  with us last week,it was lovely to see all those scarves, hats and warm woollen mittens!

It's time to have a bit of  Crafting Fun for the end of the year.
Most of us make things other than cards, so we thought it would make a change to sprinkle a few other crafting projects in among the cards
 So for the next few weeks, that's what we'll be doing, and we really hope you'll take a "Step Away from the Cards" and share
 some of your other creations with us.

Our first "Step Away From the Cards" challenge is:

Gift Bag or Box

We'd just like you to make or decorate a box or gift bag - it doesn't even have to be Christmas-themed, then share your creations with us via the InLinkz gadget as usual.

Warm Woolen Mittens

 Hello Crafters

Thank you so much for joining in with last week's Challenge, we hope you enjoyed using that lovely cosy picture in your crafting.

It's fair to say that Christmas is on its way, and we thought we'd do the same as last year and have a bit of seasonal fun with our crafting.  So for the next few weeks we'll be mixing it up a bit on here - sometimes there will be card challenges, but sometimes we';; be asking you to join us in making other things too!  We call this series of challenges "Step Away from the Cards". This week though, we're sticking with card making and out challenge is

Warm Woollen Mittens

We'd like you to make a card featuring some Winter Clothing - it doesn't have to be mittens, it could be Boots, Gloves, Scarves etc.  And if you are in the Southern Hemisphere and just stepping into Summer, maybe you'll be thinking more along the lines of swimsuits as we draw closer to Christmas!

Here's what the team have come up with this week
