We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

First of all, thank you to those of you who entered the last challenge which was, sadly, where we said goodbye to Sam. I'd like to thank Sam again for all the help she gave me and the patience she showed to me whenever I "mucked up".
This week I thought you might be like me, behind with all the Christmas prep so I dreamed up a quick and easy challenge and not one where you would necessarily have to make something - like me you could use a card you had received, if you so wanted. My card was one I received last year from my friend in America. I just loved it and fully intended to make all my Christmas cards just like this one this year. Mary even bought me the die to make the feet so I was all prepared - until ..... I finally got around to starting my cards and whoops! I could not find any red card with white spots on. So out came the diecuts and I started making different cards but I still fully intend making this one next year - "Mary, have you some spotted card I can buy?"
and by the skin of her teeth a CAS card and some masking from Von
Now a quick and heartfelt message to you all:
A Happy, Peaceful Christmas and all My Best Wishes for 2014.The monthly winner will be announced next week but this current challenge will not count towards another token - instead we will begin afresh with the first challenge of 2014. I hope you will join in though.

ps and I would like to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Sam for stepping in and helping me out when I was finding it a struggle to keep going. Watch out for some interesting news next time. (Neet)
