MTTCC #40 Top 3 Picks Announcement

 MTTCC #40 Top 3 Picks have been selected!

The theme was Winter Holiday Decorations. The post gave examples of previous challenges with decoration topics with the suggestion to repeat one of those or some of the new suggestions like light strings, garland, porch signs, ornaments, etc. We had several submissions of winter scenes but they were missing the decorations portion (candles, wreaths, lights, stockings, and so on). 

DT member Helen has picked these 3 for recognition:

top 3 choices from the last challenge are:

#1 - Deanne

#10 - Meg

#15 - Debbie Smith

Congrats, gals!! Excellent theme interpretations! 

Thanks to our participants! We do appreciate the recognition received from your postings and comments. Theme #41 was released earlier today (Holly Leaves and Berries) so please be sure to submit your Christmas Holly Leaves/berries cards to MTTCC by 12am September 1, 2022.
