Challenge 9 - Cool Combos...

What amazing samples of stitching both faux and real we saw last week. Thank you all for sharing your amazing ideas with us and also for sticking to the master plan to make at least one Christmas card each week. We are all doing just great. Give yourselves a pat on the back and sneak another smug smile in too.
Now before we move on to our new challenge we need to announce the winner of the fabulous set of Hero Arts Stamps from our start of the month draw.

The winner for the month of March is...

Claire of Claire's Crafty Creations

Congratulations Claire . Please could you email us within the next four days to claim your prize. Everyone else, don't feel too disappointed there are plenty more prize months before the end of the year and you never know what Spot Prizes may fall out of our Santa sack in between.

Now on to our new challenge.
Hmmmmmmmmmm just when you thought the DT at Bah! Humbug! were softies and our challenges were all easy peasy - ha ha ha (evil laugh) - check out this week's challenge...
