*****************************************
Please remember when linking to this Blog challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.

Thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to see your creations this month.

Happy New Year 2023


From Ching-Chou Kuik, the Design Team members and myself I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year 2023.

Thank you for your continued support of entering the challenges and buying Ching-Chou Kuik's amazing images.

We had a little hiatus and were due to start the Blog and Facebook Challenges today. 

Unfortunately, some Design Team Members are off to pastures new so we only have Geese and Lozzy remaining on the Blog Challenge so we are looking for some new Blog Design Team members.

Until we can find some more Blog Design Team members the Blog Challenge will continue on its hiatus but Geesje and Lozzy will share their creations on the Facebook Challenge post.

If you fancy being part of the Blog Design Team you need to have a Blog and a good understanding of Facebook and are able to commit to three projects a month, please do not hesitate to contact me HERE.

Once again, Happy New Year everyone.

Wishing you a very happy Christmas and all the best for a happy, healthy and very crafty 2023


Good evening everyone. 

Thought I would do this post from Ching-Chou Kuik and myself to thank you all for supporting with the purchase of Ching-Chou Kuik's amazing images from the Etsy Store and for supporting our Blog Challenge and Facebook Challenges.

We had to have a little break from the challenges due to my life/health issues but we are starting back in January 2023.

Unfortunately we only have 2 Design Team members left on the Blog Design Team so, for the moment, Geesje and Lozzy as the only exisiting Blog Design Team members, will post their creations as part of the Facebook DT.

The Blog Challenge will not re-start in January 2023 as we need to find some new Design Team members.

If you would like to join the Blog Design Team please contact me.

We would all like to wish you a happy Christmas and that you get to spend some quality time with your loved ones and that the New Year will bring a happy, healthy and very crafty 2023 for you all.

Stay safe and well.

Now for some sad news. 

Unfortunately life/health has taken a hold of me at the moment and after discussions with Ching-Chou Kuik we have agreed to put the Blog challenge on a hiatus until December 2022.

Ching-Chou Kuik kindly sponsors some challenge blogs.  This will continue whilst the challenge is closed down.  Just e-mail me via this link.

I am sorry to let you down but it is the right thing for me to do at this moment in time.

That's all for today.  

I shall be back in a couple of weeks with the winners for July's Blog challenge.
