I have posted this challenge a day early as I have another post going on over the next two days.
This is the last pinterest challenge of the year and from now on it will be every other month,
This month to round off the year I have done the Dimpled Ring Angel by Lenore English, I tatted her in lizbeth white no 20 thread. Unfortunately this angel had a bit of a disaster I upset some drink over the coffee table and she was sitting on the copy I had printed out and although I managed to get her away as fast as possible but she suffered some dye from the ink off the picture on the pattern, so shes a little blue in places.
I am not sure which ladies are doing the challenge this month so I wont put a link but I am sure if you have a look around their blogs you will find which ones have done something.
On behalf of the Pin chicks I hope you have enjoyed our challenges throughout the year and the next post will be on the 31st January, We look forward to seeing you next year and if you would like to join in please contact one of us and we will be delighted to see you.
In the meantime Happy New Year.

This fortnight the challenge at the Cd Sunday Challenge blog is 'Twas the night before christmas by Jocelyn.
I found this charming image on the Joanna Sheens Enchanted Christmas CD 2, (I felt it fitted the challenge well) I used the matching backing paper and matted the image on silver card. I made a bow and left a long length of ribbon and made a bow on the other end then twisted it and glued the bows on each end of the image. I used the new dies cuts which I won off Facebook from Trimcraft and cut them out of green glitter card from the Works, the holly garland and the holly leaves and placed red gems in for the berries. Finishing off with a peel off Merry Christmas. I kept this card flat as it will be for posting.
I hope you will not only visit the CD Sunday Challenge site, remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD no matter how small and let us know which CD you used. Here is a link to CD Sunday Challenge blog we would be pleased to see you.
I want to thank those who have sent some wonderful messages, my husband who was rushed into Hosptial last Tuesday is now improving and maybe home midweek, it's been a roller coaster of a week, but you know who your friends and family are when you need them. It's come at the wrong time of the year and I will be so happy to get him home.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend

Do you remember in July I showed you a picture of my Christmas Cactus I had one bloom on it after I re-potted it, here's a reminder of how he looked in July
Well look at him now full of flower, never seen so many flowers on him and three times the size he was in July. I think re-potting him did him good?
Have a nice day and stay warm its freezing out there.
