CJC Challenge #16 Winners and News

Dear girls,
Thanks for stopping by after 4 months.

I have the 3 winners for the For a Special Lady challenge

Lavina very very creative apron
Juhi' super cheerful card
Tejal's beautiful CAS butterflies

And the winner is Lavina - I was quite taken with her creativity.
Lavina - please email me and I will get the prize out to you.

Now for the news:
I'm sorry about the delay in announcing the winners. I can blame it on the new baby, getting back to work and a host of other plausible reasons... but to be honest I've been lacking the drive to run this challenge.

When we started this challenge some 2 years back, this was the the first challenge run from India. And I was super excited. We were all super excited :)

Now I see so many other fabulous challenges run by our very creative girls .. and I don't see a need to have similar challenges here at CraftyJC any more.

So, it is a good-bye to this style of challenge. Thanks for playing along till date. It has been a learning experience for me. And I hope you enjoyed your time here too.

I would like especially thank Indira Tanwar when she sooo kindly helped out when I was on maternity leave. Thanks girl :) And God bless.

As a next step for this challenge - what I have been thinking about is to have random challenges here. No pressure on you or me.. And I don't promise any prizes.I will try to get sponsors.. but..

I so love the new Swap Central our girls run. That is truly challenging. Pushes you to be more creative.

We need more challenges like that. Challenge ourselves. Get out of our comfort zones.

So, stick around if you want to do something you've never done before. Something like "Make a One layered card with the sketch found on that challenge".. or maybe "Use at least 5 layers and 5 colours"..

Or maybe another round of AWIC - A Week In Cards.. with a theme.

What do you got to say?
