Hi peeps , and we hope that you are all OK today.

Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in  last week and to all that expressed an interest in joining us next month as part of the GD Team. We had a great response and your ‘all the Bs’ cards and projects were gorgeous  :) I’ll be in touch with 2 of you lovely peeps very soon about the GD spot.

All you have to do this week is to highlight part of the image or paper using something like glitter, glossy accents or decoupage, or anything at all that takes your fancy :)

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget if you get a sec to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

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 peeps for bearing with us and hugs from all of us to all of you xxx

Although I did my best on my card, it is different from many other cards, and I don't think that is a good sign! But I only just started, maybe in a year or 5 I'll be a bit better :) Thank you for hosting the challenge!

HA - probably not where you would typically find glossy accents! :D

I added it to the mud - you know that pig loves rolling around in the cool, wet mud!!!
