Challenge #6 Anything but a Card

Hello Everyone and welcome to the last LLC challenge for this year!
We had a feeling that our November challenge with the Christmas theme would become a popular one, but not in our wildest dreams had we imagined we would have so many entries.
We made it all the way to 150, so a great BIG THANK YOU to everyone who took part!
The DT and myself have tried our best to get around and visit all your blogs, but with so many entries and this being an especially hectic time of the year for most of us, we might have missed out on a few, so I hope you can forgive us in case we didn't make it to your blog.

As always, the Top picks will be announced later, but the lucky winner of this fab prize...
...has been drawn and that is No. 3

...and here's Jytte's delicious pink Christmas card:

Congratulations Jytte; please contact me, Sandy to claim your prize.

I hope you haven't missed that December 1st-24th we're doing an Advent Calendar here on the blog! Please visit us every day for Christmas Inspiration and your chance to win Candy!

So how are you all getting on with your Christmas preparations?
All cards ready and just waiting to be posted? Are you moving on to making your own gifts now?
If so, we have got the perfect theme for you this month: Anything but a Card!

 This time both two Guest Designers were chosen from the participants in our October challenge (Halloween/ Autumn colours). First out is the wonderful Wendy Keenan and her October entry, a Mini Book, would actually fit this challenge theme as well, so for some extra inspiration, please check out her fab entry! :-)


 Our second GDT joining us is a lady from across the pond, from the City That Never Sleeps...
The LLC DT is smitten by her lovely soft shabby chic projects (not to mention her blog header :-)), so we are extending a warm welcome to Lizzi Graf.

Now, how's that for inspiration?!!!
We can't wait to see what you all will come up with; remember you have a whole month, until New Year's Eve to submit your entry. We hope you'll have fun with this challenge and we also hope to see you Dec 1st-24th for our Advent Calendar with lots of Christmas Inspiration and Candy Giveaways.
