The Fairies are back.

The new challenge over on the Butterfly Challenge has begun and as usual will run for the rest of December.
The Fairies, Gnomes, Pixies and Elves are back.  The challenge will end on 31st December. Your cards can be either christmas themed or non christmas. The choice is yours. There is one prize on offer this time but there are also 4 Santa Sacks filled with goodies to be won if your card loads up on one of the numbers that has already  been pre selected by Random Org.
Here are my inspiration cards to get you going.
