Card Challenge 65

This is the last Card Challenge of 2011 and with everyone rushing around and preparing all those goodies for family and friends I thought we’d have a break.
At some point during the next two weeks I bet you will all sneak away and get down to card making again. So I thought, why not, lets have a 3 week challenge just in case.
The challenge is
and will run from now until midnight on Tuesday 10th January and as it’s a long one I’m giving away 5 Digi stamps from our range including the new ones which will go on over the next few weeks.
Here are a few to get you started made by our lovely DT.
Some of you have asked who our DT are so next year I will be introducing them all along with some brand new additions who will be contacted by me over the next few days.
Have a fantastic Christmas love from Julie, Karen and all of the Design Team xxxx

They are all different

I have seen quite a few of the finished Advent Trees since our class and they are all beautiful and unique in their own way. Here is another completed masterpiece by Sally West

I love the little Bethlehem scene going on around the bottom of the tree. It was made using the new Memory Box Country Landscape Die.




Lovely work Sally.

Belly Bands at the ready

For the last 4 weeks our classes have been making a lovely mini book. Some of you have chosen to make it to record your Christmas 2011 memories and some have made it into a journal for 2012. Either way we all have a Belly Band to decorate which goes around the book and holds it all together and this is the place to show them off.
If I have set this up correctly then as you add you belly band your name will not appear. This is to make the voting fairer.
You have until midnight on the 10th January to add you picture. I need a minimum of 20 entries to announce a winner and the prize will be a £25 gift voucher to spend in the shop.
Can’t wait to see all of your lovely creationsSmile

Slight Technical Hitch

So many of you have commented on the Hand Card designed by Gayle that is behind the counter in the shop, that we decided to bring it out as a Digi Stamp. Unfortunately Julie is “Technically Challenged” at the moment so we have a slight delay however it should’nt be too long.

Here are a few picture to be going on with.




Watch out for more of Gayles lovely stamps coming your way soon. xxx
