New Challenge over at The Crafting Musketeers!!

Hey there crafters!!
Apologies as I am a little late with my post!!  I have not been well...but I am now on the mend so catching up with crafting duties :)
Exciting news!! A brand new challenge has started over at The Crafting Musketeers
Decemebr challenge number 8 has the theme of " Layer it up" with a fabulous sponsor this month....HunkoryDory!! just look at these goodies!!

Here's a little bit about our sponsor this month!
The story began back in 1990 at a humble little wool and needlecraft shop in Preston, Lancashire. One day, the owners of the shop, Ann and David Newhouse bought some peel-off stickers to add greetings to handmade cards. Ann and David were quickly hooked on this new idea, and decided to extend the offerings of their wool and needlecraft shop into something far bigger.
In 2002, Ann and David introduced Cardcraft Plus as a mail order company which allowed customers to order products direct to their door. However, they soon began to find it difficult to source enough quality products to fill their regular catalogues.
The in-house catalogue designers were also crafters, and had shown a real interest in designing their own papercraft products which quickly became best-selling items for Cardcraft Plus.
The passion for crafting ran in the family, and soon enough, sons Adam and Daniel jumped on board to help the family business flourish. Before long, fellow retailers had begun to enquire about stocking these innovative new products and so, in 2007, Hunkydory Crafts was born as a card making supplies and materials wholesaler.
Over recent years, Hunkydory Crafts has grown to become the UK's premier papercraft manufacturer, supplying retailers across the globe with the latest trends in craft. New collections are regularly showcased on Create & Craft and Ideal Shopping television in the UK, where Anne-Marie Catterall and her talented team can be found demonstrating all that Hunkydory Crafts has to offer.
Cardcraft Plus is still established as a mail order company today, and proudly stocks all the latest Hunkydory products amongst the best in craft supplies from around the world. The humble little wool and needlecraft shop in Preston is now known as Inspirations, an award-winning 10,000 square ft craft superstore.
So....theres the story about HunkyDory!
Come on then crafters ! join us in our last challenge of 2013!! can you believe it! where has this year gone!
