ABC Christmas Challenge C & D are for ?

Good morning everyone!

It's Wilma here...welcome back to the ABC Christmas Challenge!


Thanks to everyone who played along last month...don't forget to check the post below to see if you were a lucky winner of our last challenge!


*****

It's Helen here hijacking Wilma's post with an announcement.

Sadly, our lovely DT member Lorraine will be leaving us after this challenge. We're all very sad to see her go as she has been here since the very beginning. Before we launched, Samantha and I managed to persuade a reluctant Lorraine to join us as a guest designer for our first challenge...we knew she'd love it, and we were right...she agreed to stay on permanently...and that was over 9 years ago! She's been a brilliant DT member, producing inspirational projects month after month, spreading her enthusiasm all over blogland with her heart-warming comments, and offering endless support behind the scenes. Lorraine you've been a wonderful friend to us all (past and present DT members), and we will truly miss you! Thank you so much for everything you've done for us and this challenge...I'm not sure we'd still be here without your support over the years!
We look forward to being able to welcome you as an entrant into our future challenges...we know you won't be able to resist the Christmas crafting!

Lots of love & best wishes for everything, Helen, Samantha & all of the ABC Christmas Challenge family xxx

Now I'll hand you back to Wilma for this month's challenge.
