A Final Farewell and Prize Winner

When I had the idea for this challenge a couple of years ago and mentioned it to Deborah, we thought it would quickly grow, but sadly the number of players we'd hoped for just never arrived, and now Deborah and I are both super busy with other challenges and crafty assignments so we are both sorry that this will be final ever post from the Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  We both wanted to thank Kathy for joining us last year and are only sorry we can't keep it going any longer.

We must add, this is a FAN site, and is not directly linked to Waltzingmouse Stamps which is still open - it is just the challenge that has closed and you can still buy Claire's wonderful stamps (as we still intend to!)

We want to thank ALL the players that have played along since we opened, and we hope you enjoyed it while it lasted.

Without further ado, we have the final ever winners to announce.....

The overall winner, who thanks to Claire's generosity wins £20 to spend at Waltzingmouse Stamps is........

Tanja from Little Art Cottage

We all LOVED her adorable gift boxes - great colouring and creative use of the images and the vintage tag all won us over.   Congratulations Tanja and happy shopping!!!!

Our runners up were:

Charmaine and Gra

Both cards were perfectly designed and really eye catching!

So, in the words of bugs bunny, that's all folks!

Thanks so much for joining us - the challenge has gone, but we'll still be lurking around everything to do with Waltzingmouse - we are Fanatics after all!   So no doubt we'll be seeing you at a Pyjama Party over on the Waltzingmouse blog sometime soon ;-)


  1. Congratulations Tanja and also to Gra and Charmaine.

  2. Super gift box, Tanja. Congratulations on your prize. Thanks for the shout out for Gra and me. Always enjoyed your creative challenges. See you soon over at WMS!

  3. Congrats Tanja and happy spending! Gorgeous projects from everyone!

  4. Great challenge & fabulous inspiration from Tara, Deborah, Kathy and all the challenge players. Thanks for all the fun :)

  5. It is such a pity that this was the last challenge - I just discovered it a short while ago and now everything is over :o( thanks for choosing my box as the winner among all the wonderful entries and thanks for your inspiration.

  6. I'm so sorry that you will be closing. I didn't get to play much but often used your ideas for inspiration.

  7. Thank you so much for all you have done to spread the word about Waltzingmouse Stamps.


Thanks so much for stopping by - we do appreciate your comments. Hope you are having fun with our challenge :-)
