CHNC challenge 52: Happy Christmas!!

Over on my CHNC today is a special day of celebration - yes, it's Christmas Eve and it's also almost a year since I started the challenge blog. I have been amazed at the number of people who have entered the challenges throughout the year. I am offering some blog candy as a big THANK YOU.

Please go to my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog here for details of the blog candy and how to be in with a chance of winning it - and you might also want to show some Christmas cards that you've been making in the last few days or weeks.

Here are some cards I made last week, using some lovely embossed toppers that I got ages ago in a kit. The first four cards have Basic Grey jovial papers as background and the fifth card uses Websters pages background paper.

I'm linking these for the following challenges:

Basic  grey 58: anything goes

There's magic in the air magical Monday: bird image
Craft your passion 89: things with wings
Critter 95: let it snow and spread the holiday cheer
