This month the challenge is to make a gift or a box or bag (or some kind of gift holder) to hold a gift. No cards allowed this month!

I also have an announcement to make regarding prizes. Sadly there will be no more prize offering as it is getting WAYYYY too expensive to send things in the mail. What I am planning on doing from now until the end of the year, I will collect everyone's names who participates in a challenge and make a draw around Christmas time and send that person a gift certificate to their favorite craft store. This will alleviate the shipping cost. I will make another draw at the end of July of next year again with names from January to July.

We are saying goodbye to MARY this month. We will miss you and your lovely creations!!! Please play along whenever you can!!! We'd love it!

We are also saying goodbye to AMY as she has decided to step down. We will miss you and your beautiful creations!!! You will play along in the challenges, won't you!!

Here are the projects by the CHRISTMAS BELLES!



Thanks ladies!!! Wonderful creations!!!

PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS NOT AN ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG.There is ALWAYS a specific theme unless otherwise noted that it IS an anything goes challenge. We do have these a couple times a year but please make sure you follow the challenge theme. We are finding that a lot of the entries lately are listing the challenge as "anything goes" when it is NOT!! The entries that list this an an "anything goes" entry and it's not may risk having their entry deleted. You will definitely not qualify for the prize and Top 3 if you list it as "anything goes" and it isn't.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
