Hi peeps and hope you are all OK and that you are having a nice week so far.

So who was our winner then ?
Woohooo Crafty Kiwi Mama this week it’s you chick :)
Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Heidi and hugest of thanks to Simon Says Stamp for sponsoring us xxx
And check out what our winner did peeps …...
… she went for the blue/green colour combi and the ribbon or lace option : )
Now onto this week and as it’s the first one of the month we have our usual
theme and this month’s optional extra is to make a gift or decoration for Christmas
But remember this is only an option and if you don’t want to use this theme then you don’t have to.
The main thing is to let loose your creative stuff and make a card that pleases YOU :)
As our regulars will know, the first challenge of the month is sponsored by the lovely Lisa & Laila over at

And with so much to choose from in the shop, one lucky girlie is going to be spoiled for choice!!!!

The sad news is that our Anne is stepping down from the team to have a little crafty break.
Thank you chick for sharing your lovely work with us and we hope to see you back in crafty mode soon xx.
The happy news is that we have a new DT member and I am so happy to introduce a familiar face to most of us but a new face on here.

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.
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 could we ask that you restrict your number of entries please to no more than 5
Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx
And 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.

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