Welcome to Novembers Crafty Calendar Challenge! I cant believe we are in November, this has been the fastest year ever!

First of all we have had some sad news...Caroline, who has been on this Design Team since the very first Challenge was set has decided to step down. Katina has also decided it was time for her to step down too. I want to thank the both for sharing your creations month after month. We will miss you both and i hope you both enjoy a little more time to spend with family and friends! 

Now onto the fun part of the post....the winner and we are now choosing a Top 3. There are so many amazing creations each month so its not going to be a easy decision. 

Our winner for this month, chosen by Random.org is....

Congratulations Cara. If you email me (Lynne) i will arrange for your Guest Designer spot for next months challenge. Please feel free to grab your winners badge from the side bar! Here is her fab Card..

Now the very first Top 3!!

Well done girls! Your cards are just gorgeous! I will add the top 3 badge soon, i have had problems with my design program.

Now onto our challenge....
The theme this month is "Wrap Up For Winter" with optional Twine, Fibers or String!
