Wrapping Up the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style

Hello friends, followers and players in this year's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style.  Wow, I am so excited and honored by the number of players and the terrific artistry put forth in this year's entries.  I am wrapping up the challenge by reviewing the entries and will do a Random.org selection of three winners later on today.  Right now, I wanted to clarify who will be in the drawing.  We had an amazing 26 entries this year and I have given each finalist a number which will correspond to the winning Random.org selections.

A huge thank you to everyone who entered and a big congratulations to all of these finalists for finishing the challenge:

1. Evelyn
2. Cheryl
3. Yvonne
4. Anita
5. Sue :)
6. BBart
7. Leesa
8. Astrid
9. Anni
10. Jane
11. Alison/Craft Trog
12. Karenliz
13. inkypinky
14. Butterfly
15. Viktoriya
16. Lisa M.
17. Claire C.
18. Dean Designs
19. Chris D.
20. Hettie
21. Buttons
22. Silvia
23. Diana F.
24. Connie
25. Kate
26. Mitra

If you believe you completed the challenge but do not see your name listed here, please contact me ASAP at thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com.  Before the winners are announced, I will be checking the posts of the Random.org picks to make sure they have completed all of the challenge requirements.  If they have not, I will do another draw.  I'm sorry to be such a stickler for the rules, but it isn't fair for some to meet all the requirements and then have someone win who did not :(and yes, I know Butterfly can't win because she resisted Christmas too long - LOL, but wanted to recognize her as one of those who crossed the finish line:)

Thanks again and stay tuned for the winners' post this evening.  I will be awarding one $50 gift certificate and two $25 gift certificates to The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Nice showing for your pre-Christmas fun! I enjoyed it tremendously. I was a virgin to 12 Days of Christmas tags before I saw yours. Now I'm an old hat and can't wait til next year.

First of all, a big thank you to you Linda, I had never heard of you, the Funkie Junkie Boutique or any of the challenges until I saw the first tags appearing on people's blogs. Congratulations to everyone else who finished, I have hugely enjoyed the challenge and received much inspiration from you and many others that took part. Most of my tags have been turned into Christmas cards along the way which was a big bonus too. Thank you for this great challenge and all the fun along the way!

A huge thankyou for hosting this challenge Linda and providing such amazing inspiration all the way through. It has been frustrating/infuriating/challenging at times and I have learned so much along the way. In the end lots of special people have received individual and unique cards - something which wouldn't have happened without your challenge - so once again, thank you so much. Good luck to everyone who has travelled this journey and is eligible for the draw. Hugs, Jenny x
