Challenge 178

For today's challenge I'd like you to show what Christmas in your country makes you think of - it might be something seasonal or a particular national celebration or tradition ... I'm sure you will have ideas

The first sponsor is Crafter's Companion:

Crafter's Companion is a well known haven of crafting goodies of all descriptions. They are giving a £10 voucher to the randomly chosen winner.

The second sponsor is Delicious Doodles:


'Delicious Doodles is a young company with myself, Teri, as the Sole Trader/Designer. 

I have doodled and sketched all of my life. I started making greetings cards when my last child was born, and used my doodles on them as I couldn't find what I wanted in the usual craft places. 

I only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009. I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, fairies and also some 'darker' images featuring vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone! '

The randomly chosen winner will be able to choose 4 digital images.

The third sponsor is yet another new one for us, PDA Card and Craft:


'PDA Card and Craft is the name of the mail order section of the established printing and design agency, Woodward PDA Ltd.

The mail order side of our business was started late in the year 2001. We operated from our site in the centre of Nottingham, but it soon became apparent that we were outgrowing our working premises there.

So in November 2002 we formed a new company called Woodward PDA Ltd. and bought an established printing company Woodward Printers at Langley Mill just outside Nottingham. This is where we now do all our printing and cardmaking operations.

If you are ever in the Nottingham area you will be very welcome to visit us and browse our extensive range of cards and materials in our large factory shop.'


I have been a regular customer of PDA for many years now - I buy most of my cardstock, envelopes, cello bags etc from them, not to mention lots of other goodies that I'm always tempted with ... and give in to the temptation. In fact, I received an order from them yesterday - everything is always packed so well.

The randomly chosen winner will be able to have £40  from PDA Card and Craft - to be spent in their shop or online, depending on the location of the winner.

Please visit the websites of these generous sponsors and support them -
you will be spoiled for choice!

I am so pleased that Margaret from PDA Card and Craft is joining me today as a guest designer. For her first card Margaret used the Dreamweaver Tree Die. The embossing folder is a Nellie Snellen one:



For Margaret's second card she has used Joy Crafts - Snow Crystal Border Die and Edge Die:


Thank you, Margaret, for your gorgeous cards.

For my card I've used 'snowy postbox' a digital image by Delicious Doodles (one of today's sponsors) - more details about the card here on My Crafty Outlook:


Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques - and this week I'd like to see something on your card that makes you think of Christmas in your country - it might be something seasonal or a particular national celebration or tradition ... I'm sure you will have ideas. For instance, I have used a picture with a typically British pillar box, as well as a snowy scene that is traditionally thought of at Christmas. Also, lace is quite widely used in the UK.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 30 May. Please include a link to this blogpost within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish  and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.
