Three cheers for the winners!

A very merry hello! I hope you all had (or still having) a truly wonderful Christmas! Many thanks to everyone who joined us in our extended-time challenge, and I hope that you'll do so again for our next two-weeker, commencing tomorrow :)

Our winner for CSC121 is Debbie from Simple Treasures!!




Debbie contributed four fantastic creations to the last week's gallery, but this adorable snowman with an equally lovely matching card, really pulled on my heart strings. How festive and cheerful that little duo is!! I wouldn't mind breaking into these jars of sweets either :) Thank you so much for sharing these, Debbie!

May @ Mayholic in Crafts

Beate @  Stempelomis Bastelkeller

Congratulations, everyone!

CASE Study Challenge #121

We're rolling in with the second December challenge, with Windy Robinson as our Muse! Please note that this challenge is TWO WEEKS LONG!
 We don't want anyone to have to resign from participating, because of the business of the festive season. Therefore you'll all have plenty more time play.

In honour of the Holidays, how about drawing inspiration from this beauty of Windy's? I'm sure many of us still have a Christmas card or two to make or send :)

CASE Study Challenge #120

Hello December! We're all ready and very excited to share the names of the ladies who are going to share your artwork with us this month. First up let's say hello to our new Muse, Windy Robinson!!


Hi all! I'm Windy Robinson and I am so happy to be here with you all in December. I've been scrapbooking since college, but ever since I've started making cards in 2009, I've become obsessed with paper crafting. Since my daily duties are as a stay-at-home mom for two daughters, Campbell and Hadley, my creative escapes usually happen late into the night. My passion for paper crafting lies not only in making beautiful projects, but in sharing them as well. I am currently on the Anna Griffin, SpellBinders, and Zva Creative design teams and serve as a Go-to Gal for Paper Crafts magazine. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with family and volunteering in my community. If I can be crafty and helpful everyday, I'm a happy girl!

Also, please help us extend warm invitation to another amazing Month-Long Guest Designer, Wida Miller!! Welcome, girls :)

Here's the first gorgeous card from Windy, I hope you'll join us in the challenge of drawing inspiration from it!
