Happy 2010!

To all our regulars, and any newbies who may be stopping by, we'd like to wish you all the happiest of times during 2010 for you and your families.

Well then, who's feeling Christmas'ed-out? Hmmm..... I can understand why if you are. This is why we're giving all players here the option of joining in our new 2010 themes without necessarily making a Christmas card. We are, for the time being at least, going to keep our themes open but they all have a Christmas feel to them. For the first few weeks we are going to be offering you a sketch or a colour theme and you can use these to start your 2010 Christmas Card stash if you wish, or you may want to make something else. The choice is yours, and as long as you're enjoying your craft we don't mind how you interpret it!

So, let's kickstart this brilliant new year/decade by offering this yummy colour scheme. We want to see you use Cinnamon, Lime and Berry on your projects and we cannot wait to see how you use these colours. Our fab DT have made some samples to whet your appetite - I hope you can use the inspiration they offer to kick your mojo back into action after the long holiday!

We also have plans to extend our DT soon. Any of the girls here will tell you we are probably THE most relaxed DT in blogland and we would like to invite other bloggers to join us with a view to providing plenty of inspirational samples, plus allowing other team members a break from time to time, because we all fervently believe that Real Life is the most important thing and we all understand that occasionally it does get in the way of our craft. We manage and run this blog purely for fun and inspiration and all we ask is that anyone who does take part here, does so with the same frame of mind.

Anyone who thinks they would like to make a regular commitment to our blog by preparing samples in advance from the list we have prepared between us, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to leave a comment below this post stating that you would be interested, then it will be followed up. If you're too shy to do that (and we fully appreciate that!) then by all means email myself or any of the team members and we will add your name to the pot. However, as is always the case, not everyone will be successful and we would like to emphasise that we wish it could be otherwise, but as we are constantly changing and moving around, please don't let that put you off as you could be offered a place at a later date, and some of our present DT would vouch for that :o)

So, without further ado, let's kick 2010 into action and here with our DT samples for your enjoyment. Don't forget to leave us a link to your blog so that we can come and ogle your projects.

Happy New Year to you all, with love from

Happy New Year!
Though I did not join into the challenges on this wonderfull blog, I came here often to look for (and find!) inspiration for my christmas cards. I cherished my stack of christmas cards christmas 2009. I had made many of them right after christmas 2008, the spirit still lingering around, but for this year I decided to make al least 2-3 christmas card every month!

I would be very honoured to be considered for the DT!
