Another day no card..... but really sad news

I got some really sad News at Christmas from our lovely Robin saying the following

Happy New Year and Thanks!

My Partner in Crafting Crime & Bows and Berries would like to thank all our followers for their support and inspiration in 2011...

unfortunately we will not be back with challenges in the new year but wish each and everyone of you the best in 2012!!!

I'm really sad as I had made some lovely friends whilst being on their Design team & I really enjoyed the challenges. I would like to thank Robin & Jenny for giving me a great opportunity it's a great shame but maybe who knows they may return & hopefully with me by their side, please wish them both all the very best for 2012 and the DT's on both Teams also. Happy New year everyone see you all in a week or two when things settle down & get back to normal XXX

Week #161 @ OSCC

Well it's been another busy week for me personally I could have done without it it all began with me breaking my fave mug, then the car broke down when we should have been taking the little ones to a panto, then I was hit really hard with the bug that's going round so I also missed my Christmas night out ( can't wait to hear the tales from this one ha ha) so that was my week-end up the Swanee I really hope you all had a better one.
