Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and we would like you to show us your favourite non card projects (and don't forget to tell us why please).

Recently mine has been finishing Sam in the picture.  I found him half made in a bag of materials when I was having a sort out, together with the pattern.   I couldn't believe it when I saw the magazine that it was over 20 years ago when I made Sally and she has been waiting for Sam all that time!   I thought it was about time I finished him so Sally could have a companion to sit with in the craft room.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

with a prize of an A5 stamp set for the winner

In addition to the normal prize there will be a separate prize from our

This challenge marks As You Like It's

leave a little comment on their blogs,
then leave a comment back on the main challenge blog, 
and you will be eligible for a prize.
