Challenge 148 Festive Cheer, News and New Releases

 Before we get to our challenge for this week I have some news for you, so it will be a bit of a long post..:)

Our first bit of news is that our lovely Lorraine is stepping down from the DT.  We will really miss you Lorraine but wish you all the very best for the future and it was a pleasure to work with you. :)

Diane & Victoria were our GDT's for 3 months but they are such fabby ladies we have asked them to stay permanently. :)

We also have some NEW RELEASES for you too - they are complete card design for you to download and make youself. :)
They are called Quad Tag Slider Cards, there is a Snowman  and Elf version and come in both Pink and Blue colours - you can see them HERE at our shop and they will be previewed at the bottom of this post. :)

Thank you all so much for the fabulous White on White entries we had last week- they were amazing. :) :) Our winner this week is YOGI with her beautiful Poinsettia card.  Congratulations Yogi please email Debbie using the Contact Me button at the top to organise your prize. :)
