Congratulations Granne and well done, we now have a quicker way 
of you claiming your prize of 3 digi images and this is by 
clicking on the Contact Link at the top of the blog this will
take you directly to a page for you to fill our with your choice.
Please can you also add Summer Break Challenge in your subject line so that
it makes it easier for Veronica to see your choice. Please can you
make sure you claim your prize by this coming weekend. 

  As always for this weeks Challenge our sponsors  are The Paper Shelter and they are generously offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend in their store.  

I know that you have heard this before, but this will only be given if you have used one of our products on your card which could be either an Image, Paper or Printable. However, even if you haven't used an item from The Paper Shelter and you are picked as a winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so I'm sure you will agree that its still worth taking part in our Challenges. So many more of you are actually using The Paper Shelter items in your creations so a lot more winners are now winning the whole $30 to spend.  You can enter up to three projects but one of these must carry one of our products please, its only fair you do so.

Its been a wonderful break for me and I hope you havent missed us to much I see by all the entries you have enjoyed taking part in our Summer Break Challenge but now its time to start the Autumn Term but before I show you what my A Team has been up to I have some sad news and some good news to tell you. Unfortunately Anna has had to step down due to family problems that she is having to cope with at the moment and felt that is finding the strain to cope with both her DT work and her family work impossible to balance so its been very painful for me to let her go as she has been on my team for a long time and her work is just stunning, so I want you all to wish her all the best for the future and hope perhaps one day she will find she can return to the Team again.
To take her place I have persuaded Granmargaret to join us she has been taking part in our Challenges for a very long time so I want to give her a chance to be on my team and to allow you to see her beautiful cards, so do welcome her and wish her all the best please.
Now the big reveal, welcome back girls I sincerely hope you like me have enjoyed your break I see from your stunning cards you are raring to go again.
