Welcome to a Brand New Challenge....

Hi, Everyone

How are you all doing....Here at the Hobbycutz HQ we are very excited about the new challenge, and this bring us to the end of our first DT term.

So first things first....
As you might of seen along some lines I have mentioned from this week forward the challenge blog will be running a New challenge will still be the same time same place every Sunday morning.
We are sad to say good bye to a few of the DT's that has decided to step down, so firstly I would like to take a minute to say goodbye to KathyK, Mags, Kim & Wenche.

Thank you ladies for all your hard work, and lovely inspiration during the last few months, we surely going to miss you, hopefully you will pop back from time to time to say hello....
I want to give a Special Thank you to KathyK, Thank you for the extra support you gave me over the last few months, sometimes behind the scenes and sometimes on very very short notice.
Thank YOU Kathy...

Okay then as you have all seen we have two DT teams which I introduced to you all on the previous challenge, please be so kind to visit their blogs and leave them some love...

As you might of noticed I haven't announced the winners for the previous challenge, from now on the winners of the challenge before will be announced with the new challenge, so meaning if Challenge 20 is going live - Challenge 18's winners will be announced, that just gives me and my DT some change to vote and decide on the Top 3 and make sure we go through all the will have until the next challenge goes live to claim any prizes, if unclaimed a new winner will be drawn.

So lets get down to business....

Please refer to the Challenge Rule page, for the challenge rules to be eligible for a prize...
