We want to give you a bit of news: Challenge 27 will end [as usual] midnight 6 December 2012, but this will be our last challenge for year 2012:
The Design Team and Simply Create Too will be taking a Christmas break--6 December until 3 January 2013 . This will give you and our Design Team time to get ready for Christmas and spend some well-deserved time with your family. Remember, we WILL be returning with Challenge #28 on 4 January 2013--We think you'll enjoy our challenges even more in 2013!. And, on 4 January, we'll be announcing the Birthday Celebration winners of our 4 packages of candy!
Thanks for all the wonderful, wonderful art you have submitted in your entries during our first year of challenges! There have been entries from all around the world and we have made many, many new friends. We are delighted to have met each of you and visited your individual blogs. YOU have made Simply Create Too the successful challenge blog that we are. On our very first Challenge ["All About Christmas"] in Nov 2011 you submitted over 300 entries and on several later challenges you submitted even more! We have all been humbled with your acceptance of us. We have enjoyed reading your very kind, encouraging comments; and we loved commenting on your beautiful, beautiful art in every challenge! You all have made our First Birthday celebration memorable--Thank You!
