Hi and happy holidays to all.  Since I have been working several 12hour days and was ill over Christmas, and the Stampin' Friends have been enjoying time with family and friends, we are taking this week off but will be back on Tuesday with another great challenge.  I should have let you know yesterday but I had to be at work at 6:30 A.m. yesterday and worked until 8:30 last night, came home and sat down and fell asleep. 
Happy holidays to all!

Challenge # 36 Top 3

Hi, first let me thank everyone who participated last week.  As there were only 4 entries, I did not pick a top 3.  It would be too difficult and unfair to leave only one project out.  I hope that you understand.
(On a positive note - there are already several entries this week)
Thank you!!
