We have a designer in the spotlight this week which is Brenda Butler She is joining us this week for the challenge as Guest Designer. Here is a little bit about Brenda and also her beautiful card.


I'm from Durham but emigrated to the United States with my husband in 1994 and I now live in South East Michigan. It's a long way from home, family and friends but I have to say I love the crafty stash shopping over here, especially the sales! I decided about four years ago to make my Christmas cards that year and so bought a few things and had a go. I've learnt a lot since then but I'm mostly self taught by trial and error as none of my friends are in to card making at all, the internet and blogging has been a huge help and I've made many crafty friends over the years. Outside of card making I love to camp, ride my bike and go kayaking in the summer months and I volunteer at a car race track too. In the winter I do a lot of genealogy research into both mine and my husbands families, as well as make cards of course! Christmas is what started it all for me so I love to make Christmas cards all year round, but my time is rather limited as I work full time for Toyota, but at least it keeps me in stamps and pretty paper!


Here is Brenda's Inspiration for you

Here's the inspiration from the Design Team. We always appreciate a visit so if you click the name you can hop over and leave them a comment and also find out if they have combined their challenge with any others, which could give you some ideas.


Some great inspiration as always girls x
