Happy New Year!

Well, that's the end of another year and I'm not sure where it went either!

I just wanted to catch up with you all before everyone returns to work next week. As many of you know it's been a roller coaster of a year for me, what with losing my mum early on in the year, my husband taking medical retirement, taking a leap of faith with redundancy from a job I'd held for fourteen years, then another door opening in my craft world where I can now be happy. Yep, definitely a roller coaster of a ride!

So, as we begin 2017 I've had to make a few changes here in blogland. After much soul searching, I have decided to close my challenge blog at Fantasy Stampers due to my extra work commitments.

As many of you will remember, Fantasy Stampers was my baby - I designed the blog and created the challenge back in January 2014, so this would be our 3rd anniversary.  This hasn't been an easy decision, but I was finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with all my blog commitments and the blog I run at the Alphabet Challenge is much more popular, so I will be keeping this one running.

So, all there is left to say is a massive 'Thank You' to my fabulous design team (who I hasten to add are all now settled in at the Alphabet Challenge) - I couldn't have done it without you. A big 'Thank You' to all the Guest Designers who joined us on our journey, and last but not least, all of you guys for joining in and playing along with the challenge to make it the success it was. I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey and although there won't be any new challenges in the new year, I have only retired it for the time being (whose to say I can't resurrect it in the future when I have more time)!

So, I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and let's hope that 2017 has some interesting things to bring.

Big hugz, Jan xx
