Good Evening Ladies.

I would like to say thank you all to everyone on the Design Team for making this challenge such a success and your help and understanding during my absences.

I would like to thank you to Caz and Shona for holding the fort while I was absent. Hopefully fingers crossed it will be a better year in 2018.

I would also like to wish you all a HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I will be a bit late posting my card.  It's been a difficult few days and I haven't managed to get any crafting time recently.   I'll put my card on the live post myself if need be.   Thanks, Shona xx

Following discussions with Marlene, from TODAY we will no longer add our photos here in the posts, this will purely be for discussions, giving winners, messages etc, any text wise.
I have added in the right side column a list of up-coming challenges, these are where you will store your photos. This will make life so much easier not only for Marlene but also for the Design Team.

 I have added pages #19 - #24 Marlene can change and add new pages as we progress.
You just click on the one you want, find your name, add your photo below, 
you MUST then click on Up-Date, Job done.

Only add the pic for that week/month's challenge.
I have transferred all the pics from the normal postings to the appropriate pages. 
The DT can immediately start adding their pics to the numbered pages in the side coloumn.
When completed, to return to the Admin page, click on Home, a new addition, or if finished you can close the blog. 

Many thanks for your understanding, I will be happy to answer any problems, answer any questions or explanations. Caz

My card missing from current challenge post (Janis)

Hi! My card is missing from the current challenge post, or maybe my computer is doing weird things. I posted it back and August and use the 18 label for it. Here it is again if you want to add it to the post.
Ch# 18 on Oct 31

My card is missing from the latest challenge

Just a little thought, would it be simpler to have draft blog posts to add our cards too. I did put this up but it seems to have been missed.

Good Morning Ladies,

Thank you for your comments on the challenges for the first months challenges for the coming year. The concensus is we have monthly challenges for January and February and revert back to bi-weekly callenge from March. Marlene

Good Afternoon Ladies,

I have been sitting here thinking about the challenges after Christmas. I thought about having a break after Christmas until March as I don't think there will be many entries in these months. Let me know what you think and also if you are willing to stay on the Design Team. Marlene

FAO Jackie

Hi Jackie,

I'm standing in for Marlene for tomorrow's challenge while she's away.  I was going to add your card to the blog but I'm not sure which one to post, I know you post a few at a time but I can't find one with tomorrow's date.  Having looked at your personal blog I think they might be out of sync.  Do you want me to use this one?

Your Poinsettia card was on the previous challenge post dated 5th September.  

Also it's your turn to pick the top 5, can you please let me have your picks by this evening.

Kind regards,

Hi Shona,

Marlene has emailed me, I am so sorry. I am on my iPad at present and it's almost bedtime. I do seem to be out of sync, I was careful at the time of posting, or so I thought. I promise to take a good look and sort it tomorrow morning. I see I am too late to pick the top 5 and I thank you so much for doing it for me.

Again, apologies to all for letting the team down.


Hi Shona, I have amended my blog and put up this on a post today. I also checked that I have all my other cards in syn, and they are. I will diary any dates when I have to select the Top 5 in future. So sorry for the inconvenience.

My card isn't on the challenge post

Hi Marlene,

I thnk you must have missed my card off the blog.  I was late with posting it due to family circumstances but I did post it before Tracey's and hers is in the challenge post.

Kind regards,
