  11. Hi Hazel, thank you for all your festive entries over at Our Creative Corner. I'm happy to say that this third one will qualify for the prize draw... the Challenge Guidelines require that you include the song title or some lyrics on your creation, and this one does, so will be in the draw. Sadly, the other two won't, but thank you for playing along.
