Thank you and an announcement...

Thank you all for your support of our new challenge so far this week. It's been so much fun and so exciting visiting everyone's blogs and seeing the wonderful creations. Oh my what a lot of talent there is in blog land!

Now I don't know about you all, but last January our halos were super shiny and we made at least 3 Christmas cards and then ... guess what? ... ZILCH!! Made a couple more in July and August for the challenges that were around entitled 'Christmas in July' etc and then ... ZILCH again. Not good!

We really don't want that to happen again this year so we've come up with a fiendish plan ...


We are going to keep a record of who enters our challenges each week and anyone who enters 30 or more challenges between now and December, will be eligible to have their name put in our Santa Hat for a rather special Christmas Prize Draw to be held at the beginning of December.

In addition to that, along the way we may be sending out little surprises to regular entrants on a random basis - you just never know what may arrive in your letter box ... nor indeed when.

To enter this week's recycling challenge please visit here.

Just adding a thank you for the really lovely comments we have received about this posting. Beryl said 'What a lovely generous challenge team you are.' Well I guess that all three of us, Max, Irene and I have gained so much since we started blogging that we want to give something back and Bah! Humbug! is our opportunity. - Ann xxx


  1. wow, you are good to us Ann, a chance of some lovely goodies as well as being very organised for Christmas. Looking forward to the next challenge - i've kept all my christmas stash out in a big box so its handy lol

  2. Fab idea girls, thank you xx

  3. Hi girls, this sounds like a great plan. All my Christmassy stuff is in a box under my table. Last year as soon as Christmas was over all my stuff went on top of the wardrobe and wasn't seen again until September. Hugs Debs x

  4. What a lovely generous challenge team you are.
    Thank you.
    Beryl xx

  5. Just wanted to say Hi! and how glad I am that I've found your blog... what a fantastic idea for kickstarting our Christmas card making! I too continue Christmas mode into January, then it peters out and come October, I'm almost in crisis mode! But not now! I'll be playing your challenges regularly!
    Hugs from Australia!

  6. I have to say that this gesture is not at all in the spirit of Bah Humbug... thank goodness! What a lovely idea!
    I would like to wish you all continued success!

  7. What a fantastic idea :) I am sure it will be very successful :)

  8. Now why am I not surprised that you'd come up with something wonderful like this?
    A lovely idea ladies, and hopefully one that will keep everyone inspired.
    I hope your challenge will be a huge success, you deserve it!

  9. Great idea girls - and we don't even have to remember our card for you to swipe!! I plan to join in as often as I can - even without the extra enticement, but it's nice to have the carrot, thank you all
