Hi there sweet peeps and thank you for joining us today.

Not only that, some of the original DT have come back to join us as our very special guests for this special occasion and I am thrilled to tell you that today we are joined by Claudia, Katharina & Mandy. Thank you for being part of our celebrations today – I am so happy that you are here with us xxxx

We also have another Special Guest Designer as well and that is Mummy Fairy herself, yes Jacqui is here with us as well :)

But before that, hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week – there were some fab interpretations of the sketches and it was nice to see the ones you had chosen to work with as well.

So who was our winner then?

And one of the DT have a special giveaway of their own – can’t say who though :)

I think you’ll agree that there are some amazing prizes up for grabs this week :)

But where are these prizes?

Well they are all hidden amongst our blogs and there is a prize at every stop but who has what is a secret and we will reveal all next week.

So all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning one is to make a card for the challenge as usual and then  to stop by and visit us all and leave us a comment – be sure not to leave anyone out because that person  could have the prize you would most like to win.  The hop isn't in any particular order and I’ll list the blogs at the end to make it easier for you.

Before we get to the cards, I have to say some thank you’s here – I promise I won’t do a Gwynnie!!!!!

Firstly to everybody who has taken part in our challenges over the last 5 years – and that is an awful lot of you. It goes without saying that if it wasn't for you then there would be no challenge. We have always been very lucky and have has such a loyal band of lovely peeps that join in week in and week out. From all the DT, past and present, hugest of thanks xxxx

Also hugest of thanks to our lovely sponsors who have donated such fantastic prizes for us to giveaway over the years – we really truly do appreciate your support mmmmwaaaahhhhhh xxx

To our wonderful past DT who have joined us this week. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when you said you would come back this week and it really did make my day to be working with you again – just like old times. I know how busy you all are so I appreciate that you took the time to pop back xxx

To our Special Guest this week, Mummy Fairy – thank you Jac and it is a pleasure to have you with us xxx

And last but by no means least to the wonderful Papertake DT.
I don’t say this often enough but you girls really are the best. Each and every one of you is so talented and you produce fab work week in and week out. But to me, more importantly is that you are all the nicest bunch of girls ever and it makes it a pleasure to do this challenge. So from the bottom of my heart thank you to each and very one of you  - love you all loads xxxx

So without further ado, here’s our cards this week -

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget to stop by our individual blogs and leave us some love and good luck to everyone who enters.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.

Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx. It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear. And also, can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking. We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And also, can I just give you a nice gentle reminder to ask if you could make sure that you link your card and not your blog when using good old Mr Linky please my lovelies. It makes life so much easier for our DT if they don’t have to go searching for your cards.

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

Also just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo – grrrrrr what a nightmare. But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks for bearing with us and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
