Half way reminder B for Bows or Boys

Half way reminder B for Bows or Boys

Good morning all,
Wilma here with the midway reminder.
Gosh,  another week has passed. Time flies when you're having fun and busy.
The snow has gone and now it seems autumn again. Lots of wind and rain here in the Netherlands.

And have you heard the great news? From April 30 we have a king (Willem Alexander) and a queen (Maxima). Everybody is talking about it. I find it quite exciting. I like our Royal Family and also the English Royal Family. On April 30 I will watch the TV all day to see the ceremony and the royalties. But that takes a while.

For now we will continue with the half-way reminder: B for Bows and Boys.
We already have many beautiful entries. Do you need more inspiration? I think the cards of our talented team can help you on your way.

And don't forget who our fab sponsors are this time:



And here are the cards from our talented team:

Aren't they great?!
So now it's your turn. 
Have fun.

I/we have some really great news about our new DT members.

Our new challenge is:

B for Bows or Boys.

You can choose which ever you like best, maybe both as long as it is Christmas themed.
It is still very cold here (the Netherlands), so the weather is perfect to make Christmas cards.

And how do you like our new layout? Beautiful isn't it? 
Thanks to Samantha.

A for Animals - Midway Reminder

Hello everyone.  

We're half way through our A for Animals challenge, but before I share some mid-way inspiration from our fab teamies I can tell you that we have now selected our new DT members.  Thank you to everyone who applied, the entries were fantastic.  Everyone who applied should now have received an email to thank you for applying and saying if you were successful or not, and we're so sad that we could not choose everyone, but unfortunately we had to narrow it down.  In fact we had such a hard job selecting just 3, that we have actually chosen  5 new teamies to join us!   So, I hope that you'll welcome them all when we formally introduce them for their first challenge when they officially start next week!

In other news ... our super talented team leader, Samantha, has been having an early spring clean and the ABC Christmas challenge blog is getting a make-over during the next few days!  Pop back soon and collect our gorgeous NEW badges !!

Anyway, back to the task in hand, and today I am sharing with you the fab creations hoping to inspire you for our Current Challenge which is
