Design Team Favourites for January
These favourites are listed in the numerical order.

Jackie Trinder chose #20 Monique/Bear Hat

This is a gorgeous card. I love the design. The image is so cute and so beautifully coloured. The colours all work together so well. This is very pleasing on the eye.

 Danuta Brzezińska chose #28 Jenny/Fairy Cottage

I like the precise scene and the gilding. It's a very positive card and carefully made.

 Susan Moffat chose #33 Lisa J

It's Harry Potter, I love Harry Potter and this just captures the essence of his magical world in detail but with a clean and crisp design. Lisa says great for teens but I'd love a card like that too!

 Andrée Crowe #54 Yvonne

This is a gorgeous and very useful home decor project. It's a handy planner with lists for important things to remember in a clever layout. Wonderful soft colours and beautiful finishing touches.

 Ileana Artuffo chose #80 Katrina Buftron

I love dies and simple design. Brillant colours on kraft are wonderful!

 Tracey Mowbray chose #Teresa/Time for Tea

What a cute image love the colour combo.

Cass Stromboli chose #136 Rachelle Oltean

This card just jumped out to me when I was looking. Beautiful design and perfect for Valentine's day.

 Claudia Martins chose #149 Maz

I loved the delicacy of the project. I found it amazing how she made the card. Very sweet and delicate. It's just beautiful !!

 Carole Jones chose #149 Maz

I love the vintage vibes to this beautiful card. The softly stencilled background, the muted Copic colouring and the gorgeous wooden frame and shabby chic florals make it so special. I would be over the moon to receive this beauty!

  Dagmara Gorczyńska chose #156  Rosina

I have a soft spot for bookmarks, and this one is lovely. Lovely colors, cute ants.


Don't forget that the new challenge starts tomorrow.

New DT Members
We are very pleased to introduce 2 new DT members. Both are very talented crafters and card makers and we can't wait to see the inspiration they bring to our challenge blog. 

Firstly we have Cass Stromboli:

Hi, I'm Cass. I live in Glasgow, Scotland with my hubby, 17 year old son and crazy dog, Ollie. I was a nurse but now work in a local primary school a few days a week.
I've been crafting in some form since a child, but took up scrapbooking after my son was born in 2003. This progressed to card making which is my main form of crafting now. I have a fabulous log cabin in my garden which is my craft room and is known as the Crafty Cabin.
Outwith crafting, I'm a rock chick at heart and have been a huge rock music fan since I was a teenager. I'm also a bit of a geek chick too.

And next we have Susan Moffat:

I’m Susan. I live in Glasgow, Scotland with my husband and two teenage sons. I’ve dabbled in a lot of crafts since I was a wee girl. One of my earliest memories is asking my Dad for a colouring book if he’d been out shopping! My mum tried, in vain, to teach me how to knit and crochet. However, none of these things were successful and the wee girl who liked colouring won out. Who would have thought that all these years later I’d still enjoy colouring in! 
If I’m not crafting, you can either find me on the sofa reading or in the kitchen baking and usually listening to music which varies from rock music to songs from the shows! 

A very warm welcome to the team Cass and Susan!


Now onto this month's challenge:

This month we are sponsored by Andrea from SheepSki Designs. Andrea is offering three digi stamps to our lucky random winner. Please head over to the SheepSki Designs Etsy Store to see the delightful range of stamps that are in store. 

We hope you can find some crafty time to enter our challenge this month. We're looking forward to seeing your anything goes projects!
