The Challenge will be from 30th December

So you have plenty of time to play, and come up with something you have been wanting to try this year but have not had the time!

Please see Our Requests on the sidebar too, we would like to ask also could you please check that your Word Verification is turned off, so we can come and comment on all your lovely projects, Maybe you might not even realise it is on?

When you have made your project please add it to Mr linky so we can come along and see your creations :-) The Design Team have been busy with Christmas but have had time to play with their new stash they got for Christmas so we hope you love their creations and they help inspire you!
