Christmas Fun over at Pollycraft!!

Morning Campers!

Happy Monday to you all!  Grab yourself a cuppa and take a seat, this is your 'long post' warning lol!

Over at Pollycraft we have a SUPER SPECIAL 4 week long challenge for you, yep that's right, 4 WEEKS LONG!!  And what on earth could the super special theme be?...

CHRISTMAS FUN

...but of course!!  Perfect for this time of year if like me you have tonnes of Christmas cards to make and not enough time to make them all, lol!  So you can all play along with us for the next 4 weeks when sharing your Christmas makes  :o))  We also have some Super Duper new Christmas releases too and today I've used 'Snowballs'!  Here's my card...



A close up of Swings and Slides 'Snowballs'...



Inside of card...



And a side view...



I've made this for my nephew and for Christmas this year we're giving him money to put towards the netbook he wants.  As I'll give him his Christmas card at the beginning of December I thought I'd make a money pocket for Christmas Day, here it is...



Inside of pocket (I snaffled an extra £10 into it after I'd shown hubby, lol!)...



And the two together...



Over the next 4 weeks I'll be showcasing the other new releases but if you can't wait until then, head over to my Pollycraft teamies blogs.  Now as it's such a mammoth super special challenge, we have some super special prizes up for grabs too!...


Rainbow Studios are offering a Musical Amelia Stamp Set


Bunny Zoes Crafts have a £10 gift voucher to spend in store

The Ribbon Girl are giving away a Green Mini Kit


Crafty Emmas Store have a £10 gift voucher to spend in store

WOWZERS, amazing prizes or what?!  You know what to do!!...

So on Saturday I had a trial run for Hubby's birthday cake and I made a Giant Cupcake!  Well.....it was massive!!  The cake tasted delicious but the icing around the bottom of the cupcake was a bit of a disaster  :o(  Just means I'll have to practise some more ay, lol!  Think I'm going to google it to see how the pro's do it!!  Here's how it looked (just ignore the collapsed icing, lol!)...



You can't tell the size from the picture but it's actually sitting on a dinner plate!  It tasted lovely, in fact we're still munching through it he he he!!

Ok, time to get on!  I have sooooo much catching up to do with you all and I plan to do it today...although I did say that Saturday didn't I!!  See you all soon peeps  :o)

Much  love,
