Anything goes Challenge #1 - Happy New Year, Happy New DT !

Well hello to you all and a very Happy New Year to you. Here at Cards Galore the New Year brings big changes. After two years of fabulous leadership the lovely Debbi Powell has stepped down from running the challenge blog to pursue new and exciting opportunities. Similarly all of the DT, except for Isobel and myself, have decided to step down, so we have a new Challenge DT and a new name, Cards Galore Encore!

To celebrate the start of our new Challenge we have some new information and a new Challenge. The rules for Challenges are as follows
1. New projects only no back linking
2. You can enter each Challenge up to a maximum of 3 times.
3. You may enter any number of challenges alongside ours.
4. Please link to our challenge and comment on your choice if appropriate (eg. Bingo challenges, Inspiration ones etc)
5. Please link to your specific entry NOT your blog in general.
6. If you have a blog which requires email details to comment, or has a Captcha code, we might not be able to comment, but will try!
7. Have fun, fun, fun!!!

Now on to the good bit... PRIZES!!!! Each month there will be a prize which will be chosen by a random number generator. There will also be a badge for the top three entries which are chosen.

Did I win? We will have a new page listing our prize winners for the year, you can check if you have won on the day that the new challenge begins. Details of how to claim will be on the prize winners page. Please claim any prizes within 7 days.

So on to our very first challenge, of course it is ANYTHING GOES and we are fortunate to be sponsored by the fabulous Lexie at Scribble and Scrap. If you haven't checked her digi shop out please click HERE and do so!

The winner will receive A £15 VOUCHER TO SPEND AT SCRIBBLE & SCRAP!!!!!!

So here are the stunning projects that our very talented Design Team have made :-
