Ok...so on to our new challenge...it's Helen here hosting this fortnight, and the theme is:
'N is for Noel'
with the optional extra of Embossing

Noel (or noël, sometimes written as nowell in English) is an alternate word for Christmas. The word comes from the French word Noël meaning "Christmas" 
So...basically...'anything Christmas' will do this week...how easy is that???
Our sponsor for this challenge is Wild Rose Studio, who are very generously offering the winner of this challenge 2 stamps of the winner's choice from their fabulous Christmas Collection which you can see here. Not only that, but they gave the DT some adorable images and yummy papers to play with! Thank you!
Ok...so here are the cards from our design team...starting with our two lovely guest designers:
Guest Designer - Cathy
Guest Designer - Dorte K

Better late than never Samantha

We hope we've got you in the mood for some festive crafting...don't forget you have two weeks to enter each of our challenges.
