Firstly thank you for your fantastic entries to our Cards for Men challenge, there was a really good response.

Over to Jill now for the announcement of the Top 5 for this challenge

The top prize of £10 of Stamp Man Gift Vouchers this time goes to

45 Meggymay

and then in no particular order

99 Angie

Well done ladies and gentleman! Please take your blinkies from the sidebar:)

Thank you for entering and supporting our challenges


Now I'll hand you back to Vix...

Our new challenge hosted by me (Vix) is an Anything goes CHRISTMAS. If you haven't started yet now is the time to panic so get stuck into this one and have a look at what the team have created to inspire you. We're joined by our new teamie Sarah of The Art of Moodling fame. Please go and check out her blog, she's awesome! We also have another new teamie who will join us later on and thats Brenda of Bumblebees & Butterflies. You might recognise her name from around blogger as I think just about everyone knows of her!
Our challenge will run for 2 weeks and we accept more than one entry if they are different i.e a card, an ATC, an altered item. Hope you like what we've created so now let us see yours!
