Time for the last challenge of the year here at the Bearly Mine Challenges. I hope you have enjoyed every minute of the challenges we have had during the year. We in the design teams have had a wonderful time with tons of eye candy made by all you that take part in our challenges. We thank you dearly for your support and kindness. We will be back again filled with new inspiration and tons of prizes to be won JAN 1st 2013 All to keep you busy over the year!

Now, to the more important stuff, right? The challenge of the week, well weeks as this will go on to next year is Winter birthdays! We all have someone in our family that decided that it's good to be born in the winter and how many times do we rush their cards because we need to get all those Christmas cards going? LoL So that's what I want you to spend the coming weeks with, creating Winter birthday cards. So try to keep your card in a winter spirit with cold colours and things that belongs with the winter theme. The team has made some amazing cards for this challenge. You won't lack inspiration for sure!

A winner from last week is required and that will be number #58. That will be you Dorte. A big congrats from all of us here at the Bearly Mine Challenges. You have won a gift certificate that is worth $20 over at the Paper Shelter. A store filled with lovely images for you to chose from.

Challenge 64 - Santa is on his way

Morning to you all! Hope your week has been super good and you are ready for a new challenge here at the Bearly Mine Challenges. Here in the South East of Sweden we are now covered in the "white stuff" and it's coming more of it. Love the light it gives during the dark days and it's so much easier for Santa to come and visit when his sleigh can slide on the snow (lol), and that takes us to this weeks theme "Santa is on his way." Nice and easy I hope. Want to see a whole bunch of these lovely Santa cards, because your card has to show Mr Santa in some way.

This weeks sponsor is Kenny K and they are offering one winner five digis of their choice. Brilliant isn't? They might even have a Santa. Why don't you pop by and see what they have to offer you?

We have a winner of last weeks prize that was a lovely die and two stamps from Marianne Designs. The lucky winner of this is number 2 . That's you  KellyPlease tickle the bear tummy to the right and he takes you to Donna and she will help sort out your prize for you. And don't forget to grab your Winner's badge form the badge page above.
