Game #40 For The Guys





Hey! Time for a new challenge here at AAA Cards and this fortnight the theme 
has been chosen by Jane - that's me!
 Before we get down to the nitty gritty of this challenge a few things to share.


First- a huge & enormous thank you to each and everyone of you who made cards, left such wonderful comments and made our first birthday extravaganza party everything we hoped it would be. Loads of winners to sort out and they will be announced on The Winner's Circle post next Sunday, 31st May.

Secondly you may have noticed that we had problems delivering our player vote part of the linky. After much thought we've decided to leave that prize open for the duration of challenge #40 and then select a random winner from our followers either here on the blog or our facebook page. 

So are you a follower? Yes, then you're in with a chance. 
No, then get signed up! And don't forget to add your name to our followers 
on our facebook page, the link is on the sidebar.


And finally a very fond and sad goodbye to Vicki Dutcher as a member of our DT. 
We wish her loads of love and enjoyment in her adventures 
on the road and hope she'll drop in and say hello from time to time. 
It's been a great pleasure working alongside you Vicki!




Ready for the new challenge?

You may have noticed we had a few issues with the linky at the beginning of the week and want to apologise for any inconvenience caused. We seem to have got it all sorted at the moment, but have had to remove the players vote as this was identified as causing the problem. We're still deciding what to do about the prize and will update you later.

Oh and just before we go a couple of things:

Two more sample birthday cards, using stamps from two of our wonderful sponsors, up on Jane's blog - here.
