Thanks so much to those of you that joined in with last weeks challenge. We really appreciate you preparing for Christmas with us. Don't forget to check back on Sunday for the winner and top 3.

How Charming
Yes, we would like to see you adding a charm to your cards this week

We are sponsored by
STITCHY BEAR STAMPS who are offering a $10 gift certificate for their great store


We are joined this week by our Designer In The Spotlight who is the very talented Tammy Louise. Here is a little bit about Tammy Louise and her work:

Hi, I'm Tammy Louise. I live in Michigan with my patient and generous husband of 24 years James and I am a stay at home mom (for the first time in my life)with 1 college graduate ( I never see) and supporting my special needs teen age child. I've been crafting all of my life, crochet, cross stitch, the usual past time for when my generation spent time with Grandma! It continued into my adulthood and while raising my children I was an adamant scrapper! Approximately 10 years ago, I took a class in card assembly and the rest is history. I started retailing my cards at the local floral shop and today I have 2 more retail stores that carry my cards. I craft at more than 8 sales a year, I take 3 classes of instruction in technique and artistic balance, and this year I'm teaching both a Copic coloring and a card assembly class. I have shared my passion in Blog land for 8 months and in the time I've spent with the talented and inspiring Design Team members, Challenge blog and store owners and facilitat ors, as well as every one of you, has been one of the most rewarding and blessed in my life.


And here is what Tammy Louise has created for us - wow, that is one amazingly detailed gift box!
Here's the inspiration from the DT. 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.

Here is a little about Helen

I've been a card maker for many years and also enjoy making ATCs.  My favourite technique is stamping and I love using Promarkers as well as pretty papers.  I'm a Design Team member for Little Claire Designs and also work for them part time.  As well as making sample cards for them, I've just started teaching classes which I'm really enjoying.  My style ranges from cute to vintage and I especially like character and flower stamps.

Here is this weeks DT inspiration for you!  Just click on the name if you want to hop on over to the individual blogs where you can leave some love and also check out if they have combined their card with any other challenges.
