Cupcake Craft Challenge 101...Pastel Christmas

Good morning everyone...hope you've all had a fab weekend...the weather was a bit up and down but it was dry so no complaints from me :)

Today is the day that I step back from running the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog and the wonderfully fluffy Faye takes over...I have written my last post which is published today and from next week Faye will take over from me...I have thoroughly enjoyed running Cupcake over the last year or so but it is with a happy heart that I hand things over to Faye...I will still remain on the design team and I'm so looking forward to Faye being in charge of things and seeing what fresh ideas she can bring to Cupcake!

I hope you'll come and join in this weeks challenge which has been chosen by Denise...we have a PASTEL CHRISTMAS theme for you and it's a great opportunity to start on your crimbo cards if you haven't already...I've got 4 cards for my Christmas box already with about 60 to go lol!

Donna, this card actually brings about the chill of winter and happy moments the holidays always bring. I love pastels and in a Christmas layout - this is absolutely divine! You always manage to put in elegance where it is needed, making this such a lovely card - those snowflakes - and the drift on the cap, boots and ground - really fantastic how you bring out the characterization of this scene! I love the punched snowflakes and the organza ribbon speaks volumes with this gorgeous color combo! I always love what you've done - you really must know you are a crafty card maker - everything is always in place. I'm so envious you can do that with ALL of your cards! :-)
