Recipe Swap for the Holidays

   I will honor Christmas in my heart,
   and try to keep it all the year.

Congratulations Jane Wetzel from Anything but Plain Jane. We choose your card as the crème de la crème among our buffet of entries last week. Please feel free to grab our newly designed {Catered Crop Winning Recipe} button.

Isn't her card adorable? I love its sincere message.


We're shaking things up at Catered Crop. I hope we're not confusing you too much. This month we're giving our designers and sponsors a break and looking back at 2011. Our challenge is part of a month-long "year in review" with different themes each week.

Most challenges ask you not to link back to previous projects. Well, forget those rules! Go back into your archives and pull out your favorites from 2011. This week our theme is Holidays.

So . . . here are the rules for playing  . . .  there are very few rules.

  • Link up your favorite Holiday projects from 2011, including, if you prefer, any you make this week.
  • Keep the party going and fun by leaving a comment on the projects of the two people who posted in front of you.
  • This party ends at 8:00 PM on Saturday, December 31, and we'll start another one on Sunday, January 1 (so be thinking about your favorite Encouragement card for next week).
  • Enter as often as you'd like.
  • Feel free to leave a comment about why this is your favorite 2011 Holiday card.

And, here are the favorite Holiday cards our Top Chef designers picked from their 2011 archives. Just click on the picture to go to their original blog post.
