Vote Now

Hello girlie's, well it was a tough one and I am sure none of you would have like to make the choice for me but each and every one of the girls produced {in my opinion} great cards.
But there can only be one winner of the Grand Spellbinder so I have after much chopping and changing narrowed it down to FOUR.

I huge thank you to the other 8 for trying out and giving it a dam good shot, I may be in touch with you to help out from time to time, I always like to include as many of you as I can so you never know whats round the corner. It was a very hard choice to make and you are all worthy, I know that if you keep trying you will all be winners in time.

As I once told Maria, one of the Sweeties over on the Sugar Bowl, everything comes to those who wait.
Maria was sad not to be allowed to enter the comp but she has now been given the job of DT and blog coordinator of our new SIMPLY SASSY blog which will be live in January. I think she's a bit excited LOL.
So Marie needs a DT, so look out for your invitation to join all things Simply Sassy ;)

VOTE NOW over on the side bar.->
My choice for the final four were
 Mindy, Mina, Kathrin and Tracy
Congratulations girls you all amazing and inspirational crafters
 I would be lucky and proud to have any of you on my DT.
But the choice is up to our followers, that's you!

Other news just in......... baby piggies are here! Not 12 hour after moving into her new indoor hutch Bubbles had 4 babies, sadly one DOA, but my kids are delighted with our new additions. We have not touched them yet as I dont want to upset the new mother, the first time is traumatic if I remember right LOL
But with family arriving home this weekend for the holidays, there is no mention of Santa or pressies just
"what will we call them?"
"how many can we keep?"
"I cant wait until Dad comes home and finds his office covered in sawdust
 and guinea pigs in cages squeeking like crazy, hes just going to be so pleased NOT!"

I'm off to find the hoover and start cleaning up the mess.......

take care
Karen
