Congratulations hun, please email me for your prize

It was so much harder then I expected to chose a winner for this little competition as you all had me in stitches with your captions. In the end I just couldn’t pick one so Elly chose for me. I know, I’m such a cop out lol

Well done everyone. You totally outdid yourselves and the Blossoms and I really enjoyed all your comments and stories.

Congrats too for those of you who guessed correctly my cards were made using Jolly Holiday and Party On. No prizes there but thank you for taking part in that fun little game.


And our winner for Christmas Days ‘Name that Xmas Tune’ was Pam  with this comment

That’s Away in A Manger … I love this arrangement! Thanks for all you have shared with us this month — it has been a lot of fun! Have a wonderful holiday & Merry Christmas!

Congrats to you hun, email me for your prize and a huge thank you to everyone who took part

How I made our Xmas Tunes Game – You asked – I share

Now you all asked me where I found the tunes and how I did them. Well folks, let me tell you, it took Rebecca and I a good month to work this all out lol. Neither of us are really that techie so we had several re-takes and yes, we very nearly dumped the whole idea but eventually we found a WordPress plugin that allowed us to add AUDIO only called Cincopa. It turned out to be pretty pricy in the end so I wouldn’t really recommend it for that reason but  it did work very well.

As for the tunes, I simply went to You Tube and searched for Christmas songs Instrumentals. I used my Quick Player screen record software to record a small fragment of the tune then added it to my Cincopa Gallery and onto my daily blog post. If you listen real careful you can hear my chair creaking in the background lol.

So, I hope you found this info helpful and perhaps you’ll think about adding your own fav tunes to your blog posts of slide shows in future?
