I so enjoyed seeing all those lovely trees on your entries for last week - thank you to everyone who joined in.
Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winners of challenge 161. There were, of course, three opportunities to win a prize.
Please note that I publish the prize winners here and on our facebook page, but don't notify winners individually - it is up to you all to check to see if you have won and email me as requested.
The third winner:
I made a few cards with my machine embroidery on, and was asked if I made embroidery to sell, that is how Craftybrens was born. Hope you like what you see.'
A randomly chosen winner will be able to choose a CD-rom of their choice - and there are so many wonderful ones to choose from.

We showcase the artwork of Ken Herrod, who had a unique, somewhat quirky style with lots of humor and character. You are sure to get a chuckle out of our stamps! We have been offering our unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years. At QKR Stampede our images are available as un-mounted, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps!

This is my card using stops and stripes - details on my Crafty Outlook here:
Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques - and this week I'd like to see stripes and/or spots on your Christmas card.
A note about linky - Inlinkz has changed it's default link up to the new way that you might not yet be familiar with. In fact I chose the code for the old widget, but it still produced the new one. If you experience any difficulty, please get in touch with me and I'll help you link up. Thanks for your patience.
