Much as I don't like the thoughts of winter weather, I was so pleased to see so much snow and other signs of winter weather on your wonderful entries for last week's challenge - and it's so good to see so many of you still working with your Christmas stash rather than putting it away. I know that some of you have made a resolution to make cards throughout the year - you'll be pleased when it gets towards the end of the year, even though Christmas is now a long way off.
Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winners of challenge 159. There were, of course, three opportunities to win a prize.
Please note that I publish the prize winners here and on our facebook page, but don't notify winners individually - it is up to you all to check to see if you have won and email me as requested.
