Creative Fingers ♥ Christmas


♥  God Jul & Godt NyttÅr! ♥
 
I dagens blogpost hos Creative Fingers takker DesignTeamet våre flotte sponsorer, og jeg vil sende en spesiell takk til Rick St. Dennis.
Denne godslige julenissen (som ser ut som om han har drukket litt for mye jule-øl...) er et av mine absolutte favoritt motiver fra RSD ♥

..og vi har også en Christmas blogcandy gående helt frem til 24. Januar, da vi har tatt en liten pause med utfordringene :)

♥ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! ♥ 

Today the DT's of Creative Fingers Challenge blog is thanking our generous sponsors through this past year! We have created cards for all the awesome artists, and I would like to say a special thank you to Rick St. Dennis ♥
 I have used one of my absolute favourite images of his ~ the 'Cocoa and cookies Santa' .. he is so very jolly, that I think it's christmas-beer, not cocoa in his mug ;)

We're also having a Christmas Blogcandy, wich will stay open until January 24th. as the DesignTeam are on an extended holiday break from the challenges ♥

[.. This is a sticky post ~ for new posts, please scroll on down! ..]

This is a very special kind of blogcandy as I usually make them last under a month ~ this time around I'm going to treat one of you sweet crafters to such a HUGE Christmas surprise that I'm only opening up one door on the image below each or every other week, for a sneaky peak of the blogcandy, up until the 1st. of December when all will be revealed :) 
 

[.. Image will be updated w. sneakpeaks each time I open a door! ..]

Exited yet??? IF you are on the fence on wether to enter or not, know my candies are always yummy, just take a look at previous ones here :)

Waiting behind theese doors there is a huge pot of scrapping goodies that's worth about 250,- new ever-growing total is currently: 450,- NOK. Wich equals to about $32 $55 !!!
For every person that enters I will actually throw in something extra to sweeten the pot! Could be a clearstamp or just a ribbon, or some prima flowers, but my scraproom is full ..I tend to hoard.. some might say it looks like a whole shops inventory! So I imagine the winner will end up very happy come christmas time :)


This BlogCandy is open to all my fellow crafters ~ I will ship worldwide ~ and I would sure appreciate it if you were a follower of my blog, but it's not necessary to win though ♥

Again, this is not necessary to do to win ~ only if you want to make the blogcandy grow, then it would help if more people knew about it ♥

But please ~ NO 'in it for the Candy only' ~ non-crafty people are not allowed. I will also remove any spam comments or double entries

Now then, make your entry with a comment on this post saying the magic words 'Yes please!' or something similar. And on December 1st. I will put all your names in an imaginary hat and pick a lucky winner who will be getting a craftylicious package for christmas ♥

Take time to smell the Coffee...

 
Den ekstremt kaffe-tørste uglen på shaker-kortet er mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #141. med vår generøse sponsor som denne gang er Wink Wink Ink. Teamet tar en pause til over nyåret, så dette vil bli den siste utfordringen for i år. Som vanlig kommer det en takke-bloggpost for sponsorer og følgere til jul med inspirasjon fra designteamet.

De nydelige rosene og cupcakes motivene er freebies som du finner på bloggen til Wink Wink Ink ♥ Og de kommer også i en ferdig fargelagt versjon for kjappe kort! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :) 

... NB: Ikke gå glipp av min 'X-mas Surprise BlogCandy' med masse flott scrappestæsj jeg gir bort! :)

As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

I've made a shaker card with an extremely coffee-thirsty owl from Wink Wink Ink, our generous sponsor for this challenge. The pretty cupcake and roses are freebies wich you can find on their blog here, and they come pre-colored as well as digistamps, so an easy motif for those quickie cards!
