Hi all

This weeks challenge is called Mistletoe and Wine. You can use it as a title, You can use mistltoe and wine images, or you can use the colours. Or as usual you can use it any way it inspirs you.

The prize this week has kindly been donated by Susie

A selection of 5 clear stamps. Great stamps

So here are this weeks examples from the design team

Our guest designer this week is Sara Lively

a few words from sara

I have to admit to doing a just little dance when asked to be a guest designer for This Thursday… I was so pleased to be invited and of course I said yes! 

I have been card making for almost 2 years and particularly love playing with colours and layers.  I enjoy finding ways around problems in order to create exactly the finished design I envisaged.  Whenever my little boy has friends over to play, they all like to make cards with my stash of child-friendly bits and pieces – I save all the free cards and papers from magazines for them to use.  This hobby we all share is such a wonderful creative outlet for us and our children, and its fun too!

I did have a couple of minutes of mild panic over the ‘wine’ portion of this weeks challenge, but thankfully I found some lovely wine coloured papers and an appropriate image to match (which I coloured with watercolour pencils) adding some crystal seed beads for bubbles.  The idea for the mistletoe card and tag is nice and simple, but I just had to incorporate a little of my favourite colours!  I hope you enjoy my creations for this weeks challenge, and should you like to see more of my work, please do pop over to my blog. I look forward to seeing your take on this challenge too!

 Kind Regards  Sara x


So thats this weeks challenge we can#t wait to see your Mistletoe and wine confections.


Ps Make sure you drop in next week for a very special sponsor and a great prize

  12. Hello, I believe your website might be having web browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening
    in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, fantastic site!
