Top Picks for "Holiday Sweets" Challenge

Thank you to everyone who shared their "sweet" cards for our challenge this week!

Congratulations to the winner of the Bugaboo digis!

I have a weakness for gingerbread men and Deanne's creative card had me swooning!  Love how she colored, cut, and embellished the adorable image - too sweet!  The sentiment is fabulous too and just wish it were true!  Thanks so much for joining us this week and sharing your adorable card!

My choice for top pick this week is Deanne's "At Christmas Calories don't count" card.  Wish it was true. I love Deanne's design and the cute image she used for her project.  I also like the use of the different pattern papers and folds that she used.  Thank you for joining us this week.  Hope to see your art work again soon.  

Deanne, please contact Julie at to claim your prize.

Here are the Top Picks chosen by our Design Team:


This week I have chosen Sandra's adorable House Mouse Card!  The image is colored perfectly, and I love the DP's she used. The ribbon and snowflakes finish it all off! Thanks for joining us this week, Sandra!



I have picked Louise's card for my top pick this week.
I just love everything about this card and the sweet image with her stocking full of Christmas treats.
Wonderful layout Louise and lovely colouring.
A really lovely card, thanks for sharing with us.


I chose Fabiola's card this week, cause nothing says sweets like candy canes. I love the stripes and the polka dot ribbon, not to mention the border under the ribbon. Thanks again for playing along Fabiola

Holiday Sweets

Hi friends!  It's Paige here with the next Christmas card challenge!  Sweet treats have always been a holiday favorite of mine.  Candies, cookies, desserts, so yummy and tempting!  So for our next challenge you are to feature something sweet to eat on your card.  It can be images or maybe incorporate a recipe into your card design.  Show us your favorite sweets!

This week we have a sponsor and a chance to win some free digital images!    Read on!

Here is a little information on Bugaboo's History:
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

 Enjoy the inspiration this week created by our Design Team:

Sponsor's image used is  Bobblehead Christmas - Gingerbread

Using Sponsor's image Hippo Candy Cane
