Good morning friends! Sorry to be running a bit behind schedule with today's post. My daughter Taylor is still on Christmas Break so we are still on "holiday time".
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful New Year celebration. I thought I would share a couple of pictures from our Christmas and New Year celebration.
The first picture is our stockings hung on Christmas Eve. Now that our children are older they hang their stockings when they are on their way to bed. And of course Santa can't come until everyone has hung their stocking.
The second picture is a picture of our traditional "Minutes to Midnight" cake. It is actually a brownie that is covered in chocolate ganache. The clock numbers and hands are piped from white chocolate and then buttercream frosting is used for the pretty finishing touches. We generally have a very quiet celebration here at home and there is no where I would rather be than safe and sound here at home with my family.
Ok...I better get back to the task at hand here and announce the winners of our challenge.
For this challenge our "Beary" Favorite" project is Peggy from Colorful Designs.
Peggy we just loved this wonderful project. I love how the beautiful snowflake seems to be part of the other sparkly frost that the fairy is blowing. I will be emailing you very soon with your $6 gift voucher. Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.
We also have two more awards to round out our Top 3 for this challenge. These awards go to Gem from Handmade by Gem and Gail from I like Paper!

Gail, this project is truly wonderful. I love how you used the "Fall Fence" digi and turned it into an amazing background for a winter scene. So well done and a perfect example of how versatile digi stamps can be.
