 Sooooo on to Squirrel's challenge for you! 

Welcome One And All to this challenge and, can you believe it, we are up to K already (that's nearly halfway - eeek) and as I'm feeling a bit of a soppy old Squirrel today I thought we'd have a go with K For Kisses, (mwah) so now is your chance to get all romantic in readiness for a bit of Christmas luurrve. Oh yes, and as challenge host, I get to choose the optional extra so let's try something a bit different - I'd like to see some Shaped Cards please.
OK, now you know what you need to do, so here is the exciting part - for this challenge we are thrilled to be sponsored once again by the ever fabulous and uber talented Lacey Stephens of Stamp And Create (if you have not already had a trip to the Stamp And Create store, why not?) Lacey stocks some gorgeous must-have items that'll have your wish list longer than my fluffy tail before you can say Squirrel Nutkins!

Sponsor Lacey Stamp and Create

Where do I buy Wags \

Right then, that's the challenge and the sponsor done so it's now over to the Design Team to show you what wonderful creations they have made to inspire you for this fun challenge - it would be really nice if you get a chance to visit their individual blogs to let them know you appreciate them - don't we all just want to be loved?

Lorraine has chosen not to use the "optional extra", in the same way that I chose not to use it for the previous challenge! to show you all that its not a must.
So there you go - aren't they all super and slushy?
We'd love you to join us for a very Merry Kissmas and look forward to seeing your creations.

Hugs, Squirrel xxx
