Challenge #19: Christmas

Hi Chicks
 
It's our very last challenge for 2013! We really hope you join in although you have lots to do! Our theme is pretty easy, it's
 
CHRISTMAS
 
and everyone has a Christmas card to share! And since it is our last challenge you have time until December 30th to enter.
Our wonderful sponsor for the last challenge this year is once again
 
CREASHOP DUYMELOT with a 10 Euro voucher! Thanks so much!
 
 
We all (the whole crazy team) want to thank you (incl. our wonderful sponsors) for all the time and effort and faith during this year. It has not been easy, especially not at the beginning of this year. But most of you stayed with us and we are so thankful.
We know that not everyone is blessed with amazing colouring skills or tons of money to buy crafty things. We all struggle and we all have our daily lives that get in between crafting. The more we appreciate the time you take to enter your projects. And you all give your very best and we are no high headed DT members that only go for the elite! We love seeing your works in our Facebook Fanpage. Thanks to all who take the time to comment and like the entries there!!
It's YOU who actually keep the blog and the fanpage running!
 
So we wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Bless you all and see you in 2014 with wonderful new challenges and surprises!
 
Hugs, Ally and the craziest of all teams, the Inky Chicks
xxxxxxxxxx
 
And here are the inspiration projects from the team:
 







 
 
 
 






Inky Chicks Winner and our Top 3!

Hi Chicks
 
How are you all doing? We missed you, only a few entered our challenge! Seems like you all are pretty busy!
I (Ally) never have Christmas stress *lol*. No presents to buy, no food to prepare (I wait for invitations tee hee) and only crafting time *lol*...
 
Our winner of the last challenge (#17, Pearls & Swirls, voucher from Cult Pens) asked me to make another drawing because she had her reasons to pass on the voucher to someone else. I did another drawing. And this time it's No. 33 Hazel (kbrandy4). Hazel, please e-mail me at inkychicks@hotmail.co.uk so I can forward your details to Cult Pens.
 
Okay, but now onto our winner and top 3 of challenge #18! RandomOrg has given me
 
No #9 which is Coops!!
Huge congrats, Nic, once again the luck is on your side!
Please contact me at inkychicks@hotmail.co.uk and I will sort out the win for you! And don't forget to grab the badge from the sidebar!
 
And now onto our top 3.
In no particular order they are:
