Use Holly and/or Ivy on Your Card

Hello everyone, this is Christine welcoming you  back to a brand new challenge at the Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog.

Before I tell you about our new challenge, we're welcoming Michelle and Kelly to the Design Team.

Back to our new challenge and we would like to see you:

 use holly and/or ivy on your card.

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for our last challenge - don't forget to come back on Monday to find out the winner and top 3 from our last challenge.

As you can see our sponsor this month is Sheepski Designs.

 Andrea is offering 3 images of choice for the random winner.




Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours. I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers. I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. 

In January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey. I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby. Welcome to my world Andrea xx


Please check out the wonderful work of the design team.
