December winners

Good Morning peeps, I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and managed not to over if.........I convince myself that it only comes round once a year so why not.

Time for some winners to our December challenge and what a great month it was, as always some wonderful entries and the DT's selection task was difficult, but it's been narrowed down to a final four and as you will see we have gone well and truly international with both our winner and Top 3.

So here we go and first of all the lovely creation from our winner who gets all those fabby goodies from Sir Stampalot................................

Such a delicate image complimented by soft colours

Ciao e omplimenti Cinzia, si prega di mail con il vostro indirizzo postale completo

And now our Top 3, congratulations to you all, please grab our Top 3 banner to wear on your sidebar with pride.

The lovely traditional colours always please

A perfect combination of Vintage with modern embellies

Such a clever idea of stamping and paper peicing

Our thanks to each and every one of you who have joined us during the year, without you our challenge would not be the success it is and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2012.

From all the Stampy gang, we wish you a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and crafty New Year.
