    Hi

    I have entered quite a few competitions from this thread and I do get a lot of junk mail but I just wanted to know how easy or obvious it is when you win?

    I have not entered that much to make me think I should have won but I also wouldn't know what to look for if I do win.

    Thanks

    2018 Wins: Midnight Radiance Mask, Paris Through a Fashion Eye, Salvage the Bones, A Darker State, One Part Plant, Sailors Behind the Medals, Dancing Solar Rabbit & Pomegranate Active.

    Does anyone have Crosswords Collection Issue 10?
    Does anyone have the answer for issue 10 of Crosswords Collection, please? Due to needing to resubscribe, I missed out on issue 10 of this mag so I therefore cannot post the competition. It is open til 02/11. Please PM me if anyone has the answer and I will post it. Many thanks, and thanks to One-Eye for the pm of the answer for Issue 11. I now have Issue 12 onwards so I will post that one soon.
