2012 Christmas Card Challenge Winner Announced!

For the past two years, the Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge has provided inspiration and motivation helping forum members get a jump on holiday card creating. Each month a different challenge has been thrown down, and many have taken that challenge and created some amazing cards, but more importantly, they have increased their stash of Christmas cards so they were prepared and were ready to send out their cards early. Many of the players have done just that...completed the entire year's worth of challenges and they had all their Christmas cards ready for mailing before the holiday rush overcame them.

Additionally, we have dangled the preverbal carrot in front of our forum members, in the form of a grand prize opportunity for those who have participated each month. Now that December is nearly over, it’s time to select the GRAND PRIZE winner. But before I announce the winner, I want to congratulate all the creative ladies who have completed all 12 challenges this past year.

So without further delay - I'm happy to announce the winner of the 2012 Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Card Challenge:

The winner is... Christine Kennedy!

Congratulations Christine – not only have you scored a wonderful prize, but you have accomplished a task that many wish they had. Please send me an e-mail at lynn dot mercurio at g-mail dot com and I will provide you with a special code for you to use so that you may begin using your $150.00 gift at the Waltzingmouse Store. You don't have to use the gift code all in one shot, but don't let that stop you if you want to go "hog-wild".

Many thanks go out to all the participants for their creative inspiration.

Happy New Year!
