My First Blog Anniversary Card Making Challenge

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well.
Today I would like to share a special anniversary with you that is coming up!
On the 10th of December is my first blog anniversary! And to celebrate it, I am hosting a once-off challenge!
The challenge will start today and end on the 10th of December. Thus the challenge will run for two months so that anyone from anywhere in the world can enter. 

This is the great candy, sponsored by Paola from Paola's Paper Heaven, Margaret from Denique Crafts and my parents.

Thank you soooo much Paola and Margaret
Thank you to my parents for helping with everything in this candy!

Some of the stuff the Candy includes:
25 various hat pins (5 crystal; 10 daisy pearl; 5 stars; 5 pearl drops)
1 packet of pins
1 packet Prima Ribbons
2 packets dotted ribbons
1 packet mixed charms
1 x Me & my Big ideas embellishments
1 x En Marc Ribbon sliders
1 x Ribbon sliders
1 packet 8mm flat backed Pearls
1 packet 4mm flat backed Pearls
1 box multi colored dew drops
3 packets paper flowers (pink, red, blue)
1 Whiff of Joy stamp with foam mounting

The winner will be picked by my Dad, my Mother and older brother CJ.
To make it fair I will not help.
I will also have a top 3, who will each receive a top 3 blinkie 

Now the theme of my challenge is:
Christmas card with a twist
So I would like  to see a Christmas card and the twist is that you must already write inside your card.
Then I would like  you to post it to me personally.
My family and I will take it to an Old Age Home a few days before Christmas and hand it out.
My Postal address is:
P.O.  Box 3916
South Africa

You may enter the challenge as many times as you like, as long as you use a new card every time and no back linking to cards published before the date of this post.
It is a BIG honour to welcome all my very talented guest designers.
So take a look at their beautiful cards:
