The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of December.

Now comes the hardest part of the Challenge. 
Here are our last Winners of 2018 for the December challenge.

       We decided we didn't want to use the Random Picker as it was felt
    that cards should be chosen for a number of reasons not 'luck of the draw'.

            When we look at the cards entered we are each drawn to different styles,
          techniques and designs. So all the design team have input, each has been
      asked to pick out three cards that stand out to them and why.

         The cards getting the most votes will then be posted on our Winners post
           and the other cards will be listed under Top Pick and Honourable Mention.

See link HERE for our facebook showcase of Winners too.

The Winner for our December challenge was...

Sandy M
This was a very popular winner with us all.
So clever that you coloured this stamp with Xmas colours
 and turned it into a Christmas card Sandy!
