Week #19 Sleigh Bells Ring

Welcome to Week 19 of our Christmas themes. That's a really scary thought - it's hard to believe that we've been preparing for Christmas for the last 19 weeks!! And I don't know about you, but none of us are feeling stressed because we've all got preparations well and truly in place! The only thing we have to agonise over now is which card to send to who!

So lets get going on this week's theme - Sleigh Bells Ring. Don't worry if you don't have anything Sleigh-y in your stash, all our themes are open to interpretation, and the theme is just to inspire you to add to that needy pile of cards!

And we have another 2 Guests who've helped us to make our inspirational samples for you again this week. A big Thank You to Helen for all her help this week. Here's a little bit about her:

I disovered the fabulous world of papercraft a few years ago, when I decided to make my own Christmas cards. I started off with a small box to keep my stash in...then added a drawer...then another box...and a cupboard...little did I realise that it would take over not only my flat...but my life too! I'm a music teacher by day...and in my spare time I'm a craft challenge addict...and a member of the ABC Challenge DT. My favourite technique is rubber stamping, but I'm also into beading, and enjoy making special gifts for my family and friends.

And here is Helen's gorgeous card:

And we have another fabulous sample from Ameli who also helped us again this week:

Our huge Thanks go to both the girls for all their help. And here we go with the samples from the rest of our fabulous team:

And last but by no means least, the winner of last weeks giveaway is ....

Clare from Claresflair!

Love from

The Team xxx
