Challenge #5 Christmas

Hello and welcome back to a new and fun challenge here with LLC!
This is the second blog post today. If you're looking for the "Think Pink" Candy Winner's Post, you can find it here.
We had a great turnout for the October Challenge; 80 entries. There was a fantastic mix of Autumn colours projects and Halloween cards, and some players did a fab job of combining the two. 
Thank you everyone who linked up; you continue to amaze us with your beautiful work.
We'll be back with the DT's Top3 Picks later this week.

...and now who's the lucky winner of this fab prize?
 I had to do a redraw as the first winner drawn had unfortunately overseen the LLC challenge rules. Please note: only one entry per person and challenge please, and please do not combine the LLC challenge with more than 9 other challenges (10 in total).

The new winner drawn is...No. #60 which is:

...and this is Judy's sweet Autumn card:

Congratulations Judy; please contact me, Sandy within a week from today to claim your prize.

Christmas is creeping closer for every day that goes by...If you haven't gotten started on your Christmas cards and projects yet, NOW is the time to do it!!! Our theme for November is easy and straightforward; CHRISTMAS.

You decide if you want to make a card, a gift wrap, if you want to alter something or maybe create a scrapbook LO with images from last year's Christmas....

...anything Christmas related goes!!!

 Here's some beautiful inspiration from the Design Team:

There were some fantastic entries for the LLC September Challenge (lovely lace and/or terrific trim), however the DT unanimously had one favourite and once you've checked out this amazingly beautiful gift set you'll understand why... We're thrilled to have this talented lady joining us this month; Katie from Canada.

Isn't this little cellphone/Ipod pouch just the cutest thing ever?!!!

The DT's free choice of GDT fell upon a Norwegian scrapper with a truly unique style of her own.
Please welcome the talented Filharmonica/Heidi (who was also in the Top3 in LLC:s August Challenge).
