ABC Christmas Challenge - W and X are for?


 

Good Morning and welcome to our November challenge.  Thanks so much to everyone who participated in October's challenge.  Please don't forget to check the post below to see if you are a winner.

*******

Before we get on to this month's challenge, it's Helen here hijacking Lynda's post with a NEWS FLASH!

Sadly, our lovely Lindsey will be leaving us at the end of the year and we shall all miss her terribly! We'll say a proper goodbye on next month's challenge, but for now, we have some news to share with you all.

It's been a while since we added any new design team members, and we've lost a few over the last few years...SO...we're holding a Design Team Call!

If you fancy joining our ABC Christmas Challenge family, read on...if not, don't worry, you can still enter this challenge as normal, but you might want to scroll past the DT call information.

DT Call Information

As a DT member, you would be required to make a Christmas Card/Project for each challenge (once a month), and comment on entries to the challenges - we have a rota, but you can comment or more if you wish! So the commenting is shared between us all :0)

We also take it in turns to post the challenges on this blog, and choose the 'Top 3' for the challenges we 'host'.

We are a very friendly and democratic team, and appreciate everyone's input into challenge themes, and have a DT blog, where we chat and share our ideas.

No previous design team experience necessary and we welcome crafters of all styles!

So, if you love crafting for Christmas as much as we do, and fancy joining our team, here's what you need to do:
  1. Make an item for this challenge.
  2. Add 'DT' after your name on the Inlinkz gadget
  3. That's it - GOOD LUCK!

The DT Call will run over this and next month's challenges, so there's plenty of time, but please don't be shy!

Now, back to Lynda for this month's challenge.

I am Lynda, otherwise known as Loopyloo, and I am the host for this month.
