Welcome to 2015!

Happy New Year to all our followers!

Well, a new year! I hope everyone got all that they wanted for Christmas, if that is your celebration - and that the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 went smoothly and was enjoyable!

We had lots of entries for December, and will be announcing the winner next week, so check back then to see if your name is here.

In the meantime, we have a new challenge for January.  It is a time to be grateful for all the things received in December, and some nice Thank You cards are always useful. So that is the challenge - to create a Thank You card/tag without using a stamp (digital or rubber or clear). You can use any other medium but NO STAMPS!

The TWIST for the first challenge of the new year is to indicate where you live by incorporating something from just outside your window, and blog about it.

The sponsor for this challenge is myself!
I will be offering a gift voucher to the value of $25 Aust on Stampin' Up products - please note this will include the postage to where-ever the winner lives as well!

We have some inspiration from some of the team to encourage you to enter this

CG, Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Susan  - Tasmania

Don't forget to go across to the DT members and read about their stories and leave some love. 


  1. Fab idea for a challenge! Although... my window looks out on a pebble dash wall. Not very inspiring! lol.

  2. Beautiful work DT.....off to read about what you see outside your windows. :-)

  3. Oops, I can't visit Wynn as the link doesn't want to take me there. :-(

    1. No Lauren, the twist is up to you - but you can often twist it to meet it anyhow! We all like a challenge, right?

  5. Nope still not working Susan. You can reach me tho from by link on the side bar Merry x

    1. Hopefully the link is working for you now - it was playing up badly!

  6. A happy and creative new year for all DT members and all challengers!
    May your life be like you hope it!

  7. This is a wonderful twist! I enjoyed making a tag without stamping! Thanks for this challenge!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. The Design Team really appreciate it. Have fun with the challenge.
