What a WONDERFUL NIGHT! Here are your WINNERS...

I just want to start out by saying, WOW.

I know you're all anxious to scroll down to see who last night's winners were, but I really must just say again.  WOW.

Out of ALL the hops and release parties we've had, you guys HANDS-DOWN made this the best and most creative...EVER!  Our chat was fabulous, and the projects-OH MUH WORD.  One GORGEOUS, JAW-dropping creation after another.   I must have shot Marie 20 links last night over IM-"LOOK AT THIS!  LOOK AT THAT!"

Anyway, that being said, first of all THANK YOU!  For making this a success, and for making it FABULOUS.  

There was NO WAY we could choose ONE winner in each category.   It was impossible.  So, since we had such an AMAZING ARRAY....  ONE Card and ONE ALTERED ITEM were chosen as the winners in EACH CATEGORY...and I am happy beyond happy w/ my "executive" decision (shhh don't tell Marie, hahaha ;)  Just kidding-she KNOWS.  We are HAPPY to do it....cuz you guys ALL ROCK.


First the "LET IT SNOW" Category:

Congrats to  KRIS PALAKIKO for your SHAKER CARD (below)

and to SHEENA BROOKS for this adorable Toby Snowboard jar (complete w/ snow!  :)

Next up-in the "SANTA BABY" Category:

Congrats to Maria Fika Evelina-can you believe this was NOT planned?  Maria was the LAST STOP on our Hop last night-and this TOTALLY screamed to me the last line from the Night Before Christmas..."MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL...and to all a GOOD NIGHT!"  Doesn't it?

and KIM YU for this AMAZING jewelry box full of Cheeky Xmas Barrettes:

Seriously.  WOW.  Now, for the HOLIDAY TREATS Category:

Congrats to RACHEL SCHNEIDER (Rachel also had an adorable altered item in the gallery!)

BLOWN. AWAY..that is all.  THANK YOU AGAIN to all who came out for this and PLEASE know how difficult these awards were tonight-YOWZA!

Last but not least, we have TWO big winners to announce:

Congrats to MEME!  You are the winner of the BLOG HOP prize for a non-participant, and finally, congrats to CECELIA REYES!  You are the winner of the Prize for commenting as a participant!

If everyone can EMAIL JESS by tonight we'll have your prizes out through the weekend!

THANKS and HAPPY SHOPPING, too-the DECEMBER RELEASE is now available in the TGF STORE!

I really don't know how you chose. The projects were stellar...ALL Of THEM! Love that you gave two prizes in each category. You've got some very happy crafters out there in blogland right now. Very well deserved wins from everybody.

This was a BLAST! Hope to participate in another. I really enjoyed myself. Despite the fever and cold made being sick feel better.

Hugs and smiles to all!
