We are Sailing with Sue T

Good morning all, I can't quite believe that we've made it to the last challenge of the year. The team hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and want to wish each and everyone of you a very Happy New Year. We have a few things that will be different next year and hopefully you will all be joining in and enjoying our challenges, the team is slightly depleted at the moment but only because Christine is struggling with her internet connection, too many people trying to use it at the same time but that's the price you pay for spending the winter in warmer climes. Sue T is off on her travels but she has contributed to this challenge before she went and the rest of us are enjoying our time with family and friends.

I want to say a special thank you to everyone who joined in with our last challenge, it can be difficult to find the time to craft when you are busy making your preparations for Christmas so we really do appreciate your support, Carol will be choosing her top three which will be announced next year!

Beryl chose the theme Home Sweet Home and I know that seeems like an age ago but it's only because we went to twice monthly instead of weekly, anyway she has chosen her top three which are
1st Sheila (number 2)
2nd Shaz (number 6) and
3rd Colleen (number 8)

So Sheila get in touch and if you haven't got it take the top three badge for your blog.

Now onto this week and Sue T has chosen We are Sailing as her theme for this week, we have enjoyed this and looking at the teams contributions we had men in mind but you let it take you where ever you want it to.

Please link to your post and not your blog, I know we say this every week but we still have people who link to the blog which means we have to trawl through posts to find the entry at times.  Please, please use something from a CD somewhere in the making of your project and give the CD credit. We still get the odd entry that has not had a CD used in the making and although they are lovely to see they won't be considered for receiving any prizes on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
Finally the most important bit - Have Fun!
