January Challenge

Happy New Year to one and all !!

Whatever you did last evening I hope you have a great time and are all rearing to go with a new challenge. And that's not all, as we are also having a Blog Hop, so I will deal with the new challenge theme first and them move on to the Hop.

Our challenge theme for January which will run for the the whole month as usual is:

A Winters Tale

We would like you to take inspiration from Queens 1995 hit song title or if you prefer Shakespeare's slant on things, as always how you interpret it is completely your choice. All we ask is that you have fun and of course remember the rules and that you can combine your entry with up to five other challenges.

This months lucky winner will receive this super prize from the lovely guys at Sir you all going there, yes this month it's a surprise, but you know it will be fabulous.........I will tease you and say it includes a set of very special stamps worth £70 that you can't buy anywhere !!
