A Christmas card with a chocolatey twist...

Friday, December 10, 2010

Imaginisce have been celebrating 12 days of Christmas with a fabulous array of projects from the DT elves... and today I'm Elf number nine with my MnM Christmas card.
Hop on over to the Imaginisce blog to see how you can create this fun little card filled with a yummy MnM treat for those special friends who have a sweet tooth! And to celebrate the festive season Imaginisce are giving away the entire Cottage Christmas collection with todays project so don't forget to leave a comment on my blog as part of the entry requirement. Then pop over to the Imaginsice facebook page and tell us which is your favourite MnM variety... mine is the mini MnM pack!!! Then head back to the Imaginisce blog to finalise your entry... goodluck!


And it wouldn't be Christmas without a sneak peek of a brand new collection that is due to be released early next year - keep your eye out for a couple of Aussie critters!!!



From farm to you...
