You cannot begin to imagine how wonderful it was for us to see such a fabulous response to our final challenge in 2011 and to read so many kind messages of support.   You really have helped us go out on a high again this year.  We can look back on the year with satisfaction at a job well done, but also look forward to relaxing over the next few weeks, enjoying the excitement and feeling the Christmas magic as we celebrate with our families.  
Before we tootle off to make merry though, we have a wee bit of good news to announce at Bah! Humbug!!! 
Please raise your glasses and a cheer to the randomly drawn winner of our wee prize for the December Monthly Challenge.  And that lucky lady is..............
Congratulations Christine!   If you could please email us with your address so that we can get your prize sent out to you as soon as possible - it may even arrive before Santa does.
You'll be pleased to see that we can now ... finally ... at long last,  show a photo of what you've actually won - YIPPEE!!

A lovely Papermania duo consisiting of a super-sparkly ribbon selection and a snowflake embossing folder.  We hope you will enjoy playing with them when they arrive.
Finally ...
.... we just need to remind you that on Sunday, we have our last bit of housekeeping to do before Humbug Hall's gates are padlocked.   We'll be announcing the winner and runner up of our Special Loyalty Prize Draw where those people who joined in with 30 or more of this year's challenges will have a chance to win some crafty-licious goodies. 
SQUEAL!  SO EXCITING!  Please don't miss it!
Until then ... take care, stay safe and carry on crafting.
