It's Snowtime

Hello, it's Kath here and I'm hosting the first challenge of 2019 Winter Wonderland.  Our challenges will now be monthly instead of fortnightly and will begin on the first Friday of each month.  All the Design Team members will be taking part in each challenge.

The theme for this month's challenge is:
'It's Snowtime'
(we want to see either snowmen or snowflakes on your card)

Our sponsor for this challenge is:


And here's a little bit about Beccy:

My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the late 1990s and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing.  There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too!  I still dabble in each of those crafts, and many others, but I generally gravitate toward paper, which I find versatile and forgiving.


I started “doodling” little designs for cards back in 2009, which is when I started my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies.  From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects. In 2012, Margaret Myers from Sparkle N Sprinkle contacted me with a proposal to make some of my designs into rubber stamps, which was a very exciting opportunity for me. Four years later, I decided to further expand my business by offering my very own range of clear stamps, which are also sold from my online store. My latest venture is a line of cutting dies that will coordinate with some of my most popular clear stamps.
 
These days, when I’m not hanging out with my husband and kids, I spend a lot of time with other crafters and card makers, enjoying our shared passion for handcrafts. I can’t imagine a day without some sort of creative activity taking place, whether it’s designing a new image, hand-stitching a little toy or just taking some inspirational photographs.

And here is some inspiration from our fabulous Design Team:

Carol using Snow Drifters


Chrissy using Jim The Snowman



Christine using image from Snow Folk



Deanne using Snow Drifters


Geesje using Snow Drifters


Jackie using the free image Frank the Snowman


Janice using Merle



Judith using snowman image and sentiment
from snowman digital stamps





Kath using Snow Drifters





Marie using freebie Bobbie



Pat using Snow drifters


You have until Thursday 31st January 2019 at 5.00pm (GMT) to link up your creations.

Don't forget to come back on Monday to see the winners from our last challenge.
