 Hope  you all had a Merry Christmas and ate way too much yummy festive food. :) 

What a lot of stunning creations we had for our last challenge of 2011 - Thank you all ever so much.  We had a very hard job choosing our TOP 3 - wish it could have been you all..:)

Our winner is....

 Congratulations Wendy, please take your winners badge for your blog and Contact Debbie

Now for our Top 3 and like I said we sure had a very hard time choosing, 
but here are our final choices....

#30 - Jen Leeflang
We really loved your tealight - Such a lovely gift to make and give - beautifully made. :)

#74 Amelia
Really beautiful card, and fabulous attention to detail - we loved all distressing and bunting. :)

Last but most definately not least is
#137 - Our lovely Lorriane, who used to be our DT co ordinator so a special mention is deserved.
We all thought that her House shaped Shadow box is stunning - the amount of work, techniques, time, elements and detail that she has put into this creation is amazing - and what a beautiful gift it makes too - sure is to be treasured. :)
Thanks Lorraine for entering this fabulous project into our challenge. :)
Now we do not usually show our TOP 3 choices but I would like to  highlight and show off Lorraine's as it would make a fabulous project to undertake in the New Year and certainly give you loads of inspiration..:)  There are close up pics on Lorraine's blog if  you would like a closer look. :)
