Challenge #71 - Winter

Hello everyone!
Is it winter yet, where you live? Well, it is here in the Northern Hemisphere and I hope to see some real snow soon... but it seems like I have to go to the mountains to have snow as it hardly snows here in the Valley of the Rhine where I live. We've only had a few centimeters yet...

But as I like winter, I want to see your winter cards/projects during the next month...


We have 2 sponsors again, so we'll have 2 lucky winners (1 prize for the randomly drawn winner & 1 prize for the card I like the most).

I also found a great new sponsor, which is StampArt Design by Kathryne.

She has some really gorgeous digi stamps...
Due to that new VAT-law in Europe Whimsy Stamps took all digis out of their shop, so you can't by her stamps right now  -  at least until she found a new way to distribute them.


Blog  -   Facebook
Prize - 5 images of the winners choice

And this is what Kathryne has to say
"Hello stamping friends! Thank you for welcoming me into your home and hearts.  My desire is to inspire hope and joy, with celebrations of love and inspiration at the heart of each drawing for you.  I am delighted to sponsor your challenge and I look forward to hearing from you."


If you're interested in buying the images we used here, you can email your request to to Kathryne at stampartdesignbykathryne@gmail.com. They'll be half price at $1.50 each.


Our second prize is from the founder of Creatalicious Challenges
Bizzy Bec's

and she's offering one brand new Memory Box Die of the coming new release to the winner. So it is still a surprise which die it will be...


Well, I am looking forward to all the wonderful creations you will enter into this challenge.


Have a nice winter time (or summer time for those on the Southern side of the globe),


Here are the inspiration projects of the team for you...

New DT-Members

First of all I want to wish all our DT-members, followers & crafters out there a very Happy New Year!
May 2015 be a great year with lots of crafting for you all...


But now I am sure you'd all like to know who of you will join our DT.
Thank you all for entering our DT call. I totally LOVED visiting all your blogs and taking a look at your gorgeous creations. Unfortunately I can't take you all onto the DT...

As I couldn't decide on only 2-3 new DT's, 5 ladies will be joining us

Please welcome them to the team:

Debby
 My name is Debby. I'm 37 years old and I’m living in The Netherlands.
I’m married and we have a 14-year-old daughter and two dogs.
I’ve been creative all my live, but about 10 years ago I started with
scrapbooking, after a while I bought my first Magnolia stamp and I was addicted
to making cards with stamps. I have my own scrap/card making place in my kitchen
and that’s my relaxing place. Hope to see a lot of Great creations at Creatalicious.
