A Very Special Thank You


Hello to everyone.

I hope that you are all well and that you all had a fabulous Christmas xxx

Thank you so much to everybody who joined in last week – what a fabulous response and as always you shared lots of your beautiful work with us - what clever peeps there are out there :)

So who is our winner?



Woohooo Beacarona, it’s you my love :)

Well done chick and if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details on to Katharina and as always, hugest of thanks to her for her wonderful sponsorship xxx

And here ….

… is what Bea did with the challenge – it’s absolutely gorgeous.

So onto this week and we have something a bit special for you. Our theme this week is

Be Thankful

and quite simply we just want to see your thank you projects -  it seems like a good time to make them as hopefully you will all have had oodles and lovely prezzies.

As well as our GDT, we have a special team of designers this week because the regular girlies and having a week off – they soooo deserve it. And there is so much talent out there that we felt it would be nice to perhaps give somebody else a turn. We were inundated with the response so hugest of thanks to everyone that asked to take part.

As it’s the last challenge of the month, and indeed the year, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

Yes it’s the one and only Simon Says Stamp

For businesses it needs to stay updated by using actual software solutions. Some apps could be developed by outsourced company that provides Microsoft .Net development for business companies.
