Challenge #20 - Red & Green and/or St Andrew's Day

Good morning everyone!
I hope you guys are all doing well? The Elle DT girls have been a bit poorly this week 
so feel free to sending us all lovely healing thoughts and wishes., especially to Angie who's in Hospital just now, get well soon honey! 

Thank you to everyone who entered our challenge over the last fortnight, there have been some gorgeous entries. Unfortunately as we've been ill, we've not managed to comment on everyone's cards, we're so sorry and just wanted to let you all know how much we really appreciate all your work in your fab entries!       
Well done to our winner's and our top three! 

This fortnight we have 

2 themes
2 prizes
2 weeks to enter
2 Winners!!!

We're sponsored this fortnight by Die Cut Dreams & Posh Pins & Charms 

 A 9 piece door hanger kit to make 3 complete hangers for the winner to decorate in their own style.
The kit which consists of 3 chipboard hangers and 6 coloured card hangers to cove the chipboard making 3 complete hangers.

Beautiful hand made pins 

So let's get the Challenge Details then....
We have a colour theme for this fortnight of Red & Green and as it's St Andrew's Day on Tuesday, I thought it'd be nice to include that as an optional choice.

For those of you who may not know, St Andrew is the patron Saint of Scotland
though it's generally not celebrated as much as St Patrick's Day, which you may know a wee bit better.   

Now lets have a wee look at the beautiful creations from our Design Team and Guests.
