December challenge - Christmas

Hiya crafty friend, Debbi here.

Well, Christmas is upon us again, but before we get on to the challenge and the wonderful design team inspiration, I wanted to let you know that this months challenge will be my last, so I wanted to thank you all for the last two year and entering your wonderful projects. I have loved looking each and everyone of you. I never though when I started it we would have so many talented crafters joining in.

But the good news is two of our fantastic design team, Denyse and Isobel will be taking over the challenge from January 1st, with a brand new design team. So please carry on entering your fantastic makes.

Thank you again for the last two years

Hugs Debbi x
