Bearly Mine Challenge 26

Well there goes another year, pretty much... where does the time fly to? Obviously been having FAR too much fun... lol.. I hope you are all ready for the big man to call in, I'm not, thats for sure, lol... too scared to venture out amidst the hundreds... LOL...

So we have the good news and then a little bit of sad news..... (please read down),  so we will get the good stuff going first.... the lucky and very talented winners of the last challenge, Untraditional Christmas, with NO RED OR GREEN.... I was so sorry to see so many of the cards had one or both of these colours on, and had to be discounted from the draw... to be fair to all the people that entered correctly.  Such a shame as so many gorgeous cards... but ... you put lots of red/green on them.. doh...  however, we still enjoyed looking at them and leaving some love.

So... the winners are...

2 Digi sets of the winners choice from Bearly Mine.

4 Digis of the Winners choice from Delicious Doodles

Teddy Bo Quintet from Teddy Bo.

As per usual, please email in and let us know your choices where needed... and as soon as our lovely Donna is able, she will get those straight off to you.   Well done to all the winners, fabulous each and every one. 

Now onto this, our last challenge of the year.................  This will also run for 4 weeks this time and will end on Monday, 16th January 2012.  Just so that everyone has plenty of time in between all the festivities and has chance to sober up a bit before sticking paper to card etc LOL... or it might be a bit skewif.  LOL

Our wonderful sponsers for this challenge are...................

I am pretty sure there will also be a few changes to look forward to, as well :)
