It's Christmas ...


...or very nearly.  Some of you may know that we traditionally take a break from our challenges at this time of year and celebrate our Anniversary.  This year we are three years old and it's nice to see that there are still a number of original Design Team members still here.  We must eb doing something right, eh?

I'd like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our followers, challenge participants and sponsors.  Without either element our efforts would be futile.  And speaking of effort, I'm hugely thankful for the efforts of all members of the design team.  They truly work as a team supporting each other in difficult times, welcoming new members and making sure I keep on my toes.  Thanks guys.

So what do we have planned?  Well, each day (from now until 14th Dec) a different team member will post a quick and easy Christmas Card or Project.  You'll need to check here to see who's turn it is.  Each day has a different sponsor and a prize up for grabs.  Visit the correct blog, leave a comment and check back in a couple of days to see if you're a winner.  Easy peasy.

Today's prize is sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads and if you pop over to Patricia's blog you'll see a fab card and prize.





I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.

I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.

This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!


So pop over to Pat's blog right now and leave her some Christmas Cheer, remember you have to be in it to win it!
