Good morning sweet peeps and welcome to the very last Papertake challenge.
It’s a very sad day for me because this has been part of my life for so many years and although my head says it’s time to go, my heart isn't quite there yet.
But life has been so hectic for me these last few months and it was getting to the point where I was meeting myself coming back and I felt that I wasn't doing anything properly. Nothing seemed to be 100% which isn’t fair, so something had to give. Some of you will know that it’s also been a bit of a trying time for us with Richard’s mum and that has taken its toll as well.
Not only that, I felt that now was the right time and hope that you understand.
Before we get to today's post there are some people I really do need to thank so please bear with me for a minute or so.
First thanks go to Steph Mayne, who started this all off.
She asked me to join the team wayy back then and then when she had to step down, I took it over.
So thank you hunny for the chance you gave me xxx
Secondly, I have to thank each and every one of our wonderful sponsors, past and present, and some of them have been with us for such a long time.
It goes without saying that they have played a huge part in the success of our challenge.
We could not have done this without you and I have really appreciated your sponsorship, generosity and support xxx
And of course to every single person who has ever entered the challenge, hugest thanks to you too.
Without you there would be no point in any of this and I know once again that some of you have been playing along with us for years xxx
Finally a massive thank you to the wonderful girls on this team, again both past and present.
We have always had a strong DT and the current one is no exception. Not only are they super talented but they are the nicest girls ever and some have been on here with me for absolute years.
They never fail to produce fantastic work, week in week out – so inspirational.
I don’t have enough words to say how much they all mean to me and we are and will always remain friends xxx
So for the last time I will say a huge thank you to everybody who joined us last week - your cards and projects were fabulous.
And who is our winner?

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