This is a terrific group for the final Virginia's View. Congrats to all the winners and a heart-felt thank you to you and your family, Virginia. I know the work you all put into this challenge. I was so much fun and so inspirational. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks again.

Every challenge has been a fantastic challenge. Have loved every minute of it Virginia and I reckon if we nag you enough there has to come a time when you will decide its time to come back. Like last time the hoard will be waiting to be challenged. See you on Facebook and your other blog, all the best xx Aileen

You have done such an amazing job Virginia with this challenge and what a lot of work - I can only imagine how long it took you each month to select spotlighted cards and then winners - with the help of your family. I will live in hope that you bring the challenge back but maybe make it easier on yourself allowing inlinkz to chose winners perhaps?? Best wishes to you as you take a break from it all. Happy New Year to you and yours!! xx
