And here's a little bit about our sponsor:

Conie Fong is a self-taught artist residing in California, USA with her husband, daughter, pet hamster and fishes.  In her early childhood years, she was inspired by every kind of art and crafts.  She loved watching demonstrations by artists on the streets and at festivals and spent most of her free time perusing arts and crafts books in the library, drawing, crafting and experimenting with her art supplies at home.  

Conie first started sharing her art with the world by selling ACEO reprints of her ACEO paintings of fairies, mermaids, and kitty art on Ebay in 2010.  She was a full time account manager for a University before becoming a full time mom and part time artist.  

She currently enjoys spending time with her family traveling, exploring the outdoors, and designing beautiful, cute, and magical art for craft and coloring lovers.

Use Three Colours

 Hello and welcome to our May Challenge!

Before I tell you about today's new challenge, I would like to introduce you to three new Design Team members:

Beata

and 

Veronica

and 

Lisa

It's great to have them with us!

Now back to today's new challenge and our theme, chosen by Patricia, is:

USE THREE COLOURS

This could be on your card background or on your image or both.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful:


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


And the prize on offer for the winner is - 3 images of their choice 

And now here is some inspiration from the Design Team:



Christine using 'Ginger Hot Tub'


Dawn using 'Ginger Hot Tub'


Janice using 'Ginger Hot Tub'


Lisa using 'Ginger Hot Tub'









And now it's over to you!

Link up your entries using the linky tool below remembering to link your post not your whole blog and most importantly it's Christmas creations only please!
