A for Anything Goes!

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a lovely holiday break. We sure did!
But we are excited to be back with a new year worth of challenges.

It's Lacey's turn to host the challenge but her Internet is down so it's Helen here helping out.

Before we get started on our new challenge, I just want to let you know of a couple of changes we're making...the lucky winners, and Top 3 cards will now be placed in the sidebar. Hopefully this will make sure that nobody misses out on their prizes, by making it easier for you to find out if you've won :0)

There is also now a page where the winners can find their blinkies & badges for their blogs, and a widget in the sidebar to email us to claim the prizes.

It's time to start back at the beginning of the alphabet, so this challenge is:
