Pick A Previous Theme Winners

WoW!You blew us away with all your fantastic entries for my last challenge of November -our Previous Theme challenge, lovely to see so many entries but SO hard to chose a winner.  So hard in fact we didn't ......we chose two! Two regular challengers will share the top spot this week for their fabulous and very different cards.

for her fun Father Christmas face

for her scrummy candy canes

Well done ladies, you both deserve Top Honours this week

We have four others who get an Honourable Mention, so, in no particular order, we say a very big well done to

That's it from me (Louise) for 2013, apart from commenting on your cards for our current challenge, which runs for another week yet, so plenty of time to get yours done.  The challenge is Any Previous Challenge from 52 CCT. Wishing you all a very happy holiday season and see you in 2014!

November Technique Challenge Top Picks

Guess some of you didn't want to get messy last week! We only had a few entries for the Acrylic Block Print Background, but the standard of those entries was extremely high, making it incredibly difficult to chose an overall winner.  Every DT member had a different choice for the top spot it seemed. As hostess for the month the casting vote came down to me and so our top pick goes to....

Top Honor

..for these beautiful embossed trees on the chilly sky background.  Well done, Helen, please take the winners' badge from the side bar if you would like it

It only seems fair that the remaining cards, which were all amazing, should also get a mention and so we have 6 Honorable mentions this week. In numerical order we say well done to..

Don't forget we have the current challenge still running, where we are asking you to pick a previous theme from our past challenges, and I see that this has inspired quite a lot of you to enter already!
