No April Fools Here! It's our 50th Challenge!

Hello, and welcome to our monthly Challenge, this month we are sponsored by Star Stampz who are offering 3 of their beautiful digi stamps to our winner.

Thank you so much for your entries last month, Jackie will be posting the winners post for you on the winners page (tab above!) We were also delighted with the number of people who responded to the DT Call and are currently contacting everybody who applied!
I am sorry to let you know that we are saying goodbye to Isobel this month as she is going to concentrate on other areas of crafting and her wonderful family. Isobel joined Crafts Galore when it first started and took over shared responsibility for it with myself, when it became Crafts Galore Encore. She has been a fabulous admin and team member and we will all miss her immensely. We wish her lots of luck though and look forward to seeing her in blog land!
On a happier note I am delighted that Jackie has joined the admin team to help share the workload!

Wishing you all a happy and peaceful Easter,
Happy Crafting,
Denyse, Carole, Jackie and the CGE DT
