Yeah, I can't believe I went from 2 entries to 14 in just a couple of days.

Even if some of them were just re-entries from 2017 Wink But that's okay. Love to see old favourites. And I forget which ones were winners before!

I regret a bit voting for no# 12.
No# 4 deserves to get some votes.

Well, nearly more entries than votes this year, but Frankymole is a clear winner! Congratulations, Franky!


GREAT entries from everyone, I though the targeted Christmas paper was a certain winner when I first saw it, and then when Avengerholic sent his entries I thought one of THEM was sure to win, then Franky swooped in with a true crowd pleaser, so what do I know?

1 - The Strange Case of the One Too Many! - Avengerholic [ 1 ]
2 - Targeted Christmas paper - newdoberman [ 1 ]
3 - Steed with a jaunty umbrella and Christmas boxes - Frankymole [ 5 ]
4 - Snowy Christmas balls - Avengerholic [1]
5 - Steed driving the ladies to a party - Rhonda [ 2 ]
6 - What's on the (Christmas) box tonight? - newdoberman [ 0 ]
7 - Cathy's Christmas - Allard [ 0 ]
8 - Mother's Christmas Party - Avengerholic [ 0 ]
9 - Christmas Cards ? - newdoberman [ 1 ]
10- A Merry Christmas wreath - Avengerholic [ 0 ]
11- She's a Christmas Cracker! - Avengerholic [ 2 ]
12- A stripy stick of Avengers rock - newdoberman [ 1 ]
13- A Merry Christmas at Steed's penthouse party - newdoberman [ 2 ]
14 - Minimalist snowscape - dissolute [ 0 ]

I've put a 1 against Ian's snowy Christmas baubles as Allard said he wished he'd voted for it after all.

Congrats to Frankmole for a very well made banner.

I also suspected that the targets banner (no#2) w/could win, it's very good, but not very Christmassy.

No hard feelings that I received zero votes, I put mine together in about an hour on the final evening of entering. Taking part again was great enough.

Ooh thank you!!! Yes I finally got round to doing one for the first time ever. Now I shall have to retire from future competitions as I'm sure I could never repeat the feat Very Happy

I was concerned we only had two entries, so forced myself to stay sat at the computer until I had come up with something - perspiration rather than inspiration!!

All I knew was I had to include some Avengers toys and annuals, a few baubles representing Steed (horse and horseshoe) and his scientific partner with a planet/star (whether doctors, anthropologists or multiple-scientists) but most of all to have as many of the regulars as possible because I love them all, and Jon Rollason doesn't get enough love - nor does Ian Hendry for matter! Steed bursting in (not the window? Should be, his usual method Smile) with the Christmas tree from Take-Over was irresistable.

The most annoying and time-consuming bits were cutting out Steed's suit and the candy-cane stuff. Wish I'd spent longer but if time wasn't tight I'd probably never have got round to entering, ironically. I'm so lazy.

They're all lovely but the standouts for me are Banners number 1 (especially the wonderful facial expressions, haha!), number 6 (so colourful and what wonderful attention to detail matching the TV sets and titles) and number 13 (what a joy to see them all together in party mood). And as a massive Honor fan, number 7 charms me so much. Wonderful work everyone! As usual I will consult the entries thread and enjoy all the banners every time I log in over Christmas!
