shell-swinscoe@virginmedia.com  or enter the challenge & pop GDT after your name....the position will start in the new year. Also we don't have any sponsors, so you get to use your stash. Only thing you need to do is follow the theme & have your creations to me via email/Facebook on time!

The theme this week is....


lol, ok so long as there is some form of snow person on your creation your good to go!

Nige got me this fabulous Snowy stamp in the sale at the beginning of this year, love it!
