TCN Craft Challenge ~ “All Things Festive” And the Winner is…..

30 Nov

First I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who sent in entries for our last craft challenge for this year.  I just want to say, I know it’s nice to win, but I want to stress to everyone that enters these challenges, taking part makes you all winners, the main objective of each of the craft challenge has always been to help promote your crafts and introduce you and your crafts to a wider audience.  All the photos are uploaded to Facebook and throughout the year there has been lots of interest in all the entries. THANK YOU FOR TAKING PART

My second thank you is to everyone that has voted for this challenge and all the previous challenges, without your support it wouldn’t have been the success it has been. THANK YOU FOR VOTING.

The voting this week has been amazing, we have had a record number of views and a record number of votes.  It was very obvious from the outset that 2 people in particular had done what I always suggest everyone should do and that is promote their entries to encourage people to vote for them. I am just sorry I can’t declare them both the Winner as the voting was sooooo close, but one just pipped it at the end. 

So Drum Roll please………………..

The votes have been counted and verified and it now gives me great pleasure to announce the WINNER and RUNNERS UP are:


No. 27 Encharmed by Christy  (WINNER)

Thank you so much everyone, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas & A Very Happy New Year

I hope you can join us in January to Vote for the Ultimate 2012 Challenge Winner.

    Wow!!! I’m so chuffed, I knew it was gonna be close but better luck next time I guess. It’s been a lovely distraction from my lurgies. I’d just like to say well done to everyone and thanks for voting and a MASSIVE thank you to Linda for all the hardwork. ❤ xx

      Your very welcome, you wouldn’t believe how close it really was, but I never reveal the final scores, but if it was a horse race, it would have been a photo finish with a steward enquiry, lol!! I hope you feel better soon and thank you so much for entering and all your hard work promoting your entry, it really does work, it’s just this week you were up against a tough opponent. Linda x

        I know it was close and had 4 votes that didn’t quite get in on time so I’m so glad you don’t give out results as I’d rather not know just in case they’d have made a difference! Lol. Already planning the Valentine one. 🙂
