Challenge #62 – In The Holiday Spirit

A change from our usual fortnightly challenge, for this month only you will have 4 weeks to enter.

We are a stamping challenge so we do need to see some form of stamping on your project, also no digi stamps are allowed.

You may use digi downloads for enhancement of your projects … but the main focal point must be stamping.

Please welcome our sponsor of FSC a fabulous company called Flonzcraft.

The winner of each challenge will receive a very generous voucher for Leo’s Store of $20.  Here is a little information about our sponsor:

We are a small family-owned design and craft company from New Zealand, a very small country where all people are great neighbours. We work very hard for our store and work philosophy to reflect that in our company. We are very proud of our products and our main goal is making and selling rubber and clear stamps. We have a unique collection of stamps that you cannot find anywhere else.

In The Holiday Spirit

This is really a very simple anything goes kinda challenge and yep you read it right … 4 weeks to enter.  The Fashion Stampettes are having a little break from all that walking onto the catwalk over the Christmas period.  No putting on weight girls over the Christmas break x  x

Please interpret the theme anyway you like it doesn’t just mean Christmas.  Drinking that glass of wine, a break to still make those Christmas cards, thinking of that holiday in 2014 or just lazing in a flowered garden.

Basically celebrate the holidays in your own way.

Terry’s idea for the theme this fortnight so she starts her solo walk showing this rather smart rotund little chap.  No prizes for guessing who he is!!  Her holiday mood is obviously still thinking of Christmas yet to come. And maybe dreaming of all that Christmas food as she has used these beautiful fresh tones of Coffee, Cream and Sage!!

Christmas waves a magic wand over the world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful ” 


The Fashion Stampettes have used their fabulous talents to design some impressive inspirational pieces just for you.  Please pop over and read how they have made their projects.  So let’s take that catwalk stroll to see each of their creative makes.

Catwalk Inspiration Time

Claire is another still in the Christmas holiday feeling with this absolutely delicious card.  The ribbon is like an off the shoulder shawl draped perfectly for the eye to see.



Wow Meggymay has gone for the spirit option, I can hear the hics from here.




Dot is in the beach mood with this vintage bathing belle.  Not sure if she’s getting soaked or just soaking up the sun?





Shirley has also opted for the wish you were here holiday mood.

We are a stamping challenge so we do need to see some form of stamping on your project, also no digi stamps are allowed.
