'Winter Wonderland' Mid Challenger Reminder

It is Christmas and we have reach the mid way point of our 'Winter Wonderland' Challenge.  We hope you all enjoyed the holiday weekend.  This will be our last post for 2016, it has been a great year and we should like to wish all of our followers a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Lisa and Kathie recently won our 'Pink' Challenge.  Both Lisa and Kathie are regular Guest Designers, they are exceptionally talented and we consider ourselves so lucky.  Thank you Lisa and Kathie.

I have been crafting since 1991.   I started out learning 3d decoupage and made mainly pictures.  There was no diecutting in those days so I used to cut out each layer with a craft knife.   One picture took me 22 hours! I then changed over to card making.  I played around a bit with Rubber stamping and colouring but found that the lack of tools available back then hindered a good result or I just wasn't any good at it!  A few years ago I was introduced to Promarkers and the wonderful world of Digi Stamps and that spurred me on to have another go at colouring then came entering challenges and blogging!  I love colouring both digi and rubber stamps and experimenting with colours and have recently started to play with inks and backgrounds!


Hi, I'm Kathie from New Zealand and I’m happily married to an amazing man who supports my crafting and loves my cards.  We have two teenage sons at boarding school and one black and white cat that is spoilt rotten and if I’m crafting and don’t pay attention to him, he’ll jump up and sit on my work.  One of my sons has an amazing eye for colour and detail and if I ever need a second opinion about an embellishment or colour he’s the first one I call on. 

I’ve been crafting from ever since I can remember, weather it was knitting, colouring, or sewing dresses for my dolls as a child and later in life for myself.  But now days it’s either Card Making, Scrapbooking or Cross Stitch.  I’ve been on one design team for nearly 7 years and have loved meeting people from all walks of life and countries. I have a blog called Kathiez Kardz.

Some more ideas from our lovely ladies in the Design Team:
