Challenge #35 - Winners

Morning! I'm here with the winners for our Challenge #35 where we wanted you to use Black, Grey and White on your Christmas cards. Sadly, there were only two submissions to this challenge - it might be that you were all enjoying wonderful summer weather and forgot all about Christmas, or it was tough!! I think it was summer. So, we'd like to thank Doris and Ger Janne for playing along. Please pick up your Top Pick badge from the winners tab above.


Love the square pattern and the framed Christmas ornaments.
Lovely work.


Love the slimline look
Fabulous Santa image and pretty ribbon too.
