Challenge no #60 - MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hi Chicks!

As promised we are back with our last challenge for 2015. No worries, we will be back in January 2016 ;o)

This challenge runs as from today until the 31st of December, so you have plenty of time to enter your cards. We will announce the winner and Top 3 at the beginning of January 2016 prior to our first challenge in 2016.

Before we tell you who our sponsor is and show you our DT creations, I would like to make another announcement: we are looking for two or three new DT members. We don't ask for much:

Our challenges are every three weeks (sometimes only once a month during Summer break and Christmas), cards need to be ready about three days prior to the next challenge. 
We are organised which means: all challenge themes are already planned for 2016 and you can mostly use your own images (except when we are sponsored by a digi-images-artist). We don't comment on the entries. Not because we are lazy but we simply don't have the time to spend our lives behind a screen. 
So all you should be: loyal and not bitchy and touchy. 
Be on Facebook so that we can invite you to the Behind the Scenes Group. Also please have a blog (we upload our cards in a Behind the Scenes blog).

Should you be interested, please email me (calligarisa@bluewin.ch) and Pialine (pialine422@yahoo.com) or contact me by private message on my Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/AllyTheFox

Okay, but now onto our new challenge! Our wonderful sponsor is once again Sandra from Live & Love Crafts! Thank you Sandy for being with us the last years and also next year. We really do appreciate it very much.

Theme is

MERRY CHRISTMAS

and the 
prize for the winner is a generous £10 voucher
