January Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Happy 2015 
Welcome to the January Challenge
 here at Craft-Dee BowZ, 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our December Challenge!!! 

  The submissions were fabulous (as always) and I love to see the incredible creativity that you talented people submit -- they are so amazing.  I think everyone is a winner; however, I could only choose a Top 3, an Honorable Mention and the Winner for the month.  Let me tell you, this task is so daunting each month with all the talent out there.  
(Yes, I know I say this each month, but it’s true!)

Just to let you all know that the Winner, the Top 3 and any Honorable Mentions are all chosen on their merits, so make sure to get your creative juices flowing and send in your best submissions.

Who won the Grand Prize for the December Challenge??  
Well, without further ado the winner is:
Sassy Raggedy (Submission # 73)
Congratulations to Joann
You will have until January 8 (that's 1 week) 

to claim your prize

Monthly Prize
One Reel (25 yards) of Ribbon

To arrange for your prize to be sent and to receive a winners badge to display on your blog  please email me at by January  8th
Please put Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge Winner in the subject of your email.

(in no particular order)

2.Heather (Submission #45)
3. AnnetteS(Submission  #68)
Please grab the "top 3 badge" on the sidebar here and

Unfortunately due to postage costs, winners will be chosen from USA submissions.However in order to give our overseas submitters the opportunity to be considered to be in the running for Grand Prize, we are offering the option for you to pay the shipping. 

Therefore, if you are a non-US submitter and are willing to pay the shipping costs if you are the grand prize winner, please place a dollar sign ($) after your submission name.
Thank you for understanding.
