You will on occasions use Sponsors' images and products, mostly digital stamps, and follow the challenge theme. I now this is a sticky subject for some crafter's, as they like to use there own stamps, so my challenge blog, will NOT always be using a sponsor.  on the Anything goes weeks, use whatever you want but it MUST cover the theme,or Element,   I will also have once a month, a member of the DT who chooses the Challenge, 
You must have a blog on which to post your work on the day the challenge starts.

Good Afternoon Readers,
Well it's getting near the end of another week........ were does the time fly, my friend  Sherry said in conversation ,that we only have four more pay day's till Christmas..... FOUR, is that all....... I need at LEAST 12........ I am going to make as many Hand Made Gifts as I can this year........ firstly , yes to cut the cost, but not only that, I think more thought goes in to something  Hand Made, rather than going in to one of these large Department Stores, and picking something of the shelf, that will probably be opened on Christmas Day and shoved in a draw........ so my idea this year is to make some Hand made Chocolate and Hand Made Soap, these can be made even more special by the packaging... I feel a Kirsty Allsop moment coming on...... so anyone who has any ideas, please leave me a message in my comment box....... well to get me in the Christmas Spirit, Hmmm, I have joined in with the fun over on 52cct.blogspot I just love Bugaboo Stamps, as some of them hit the nail right on the head.......
and my entry is below.....
