Time for the July Winner!

Welcome to week two of the August Challenge - White on white! 
The twist is to add ONE colour
It is a bit appropriate as it turns out!

You may or may not be aware that the weather predictions were correct and we have had a big dump of snow in Hobart in the last week, down to sea level. Not as bad as 1986, but nearly! We get very excited about snow because it is a fairly rare event, and to get it to sea level is just amazing! However, as I am writing this up it is a sun shiny and blue day and warmer temps all round but the snow is lingering on the hills.

OK now about the challenge - for this challenge we have a prize:

A packet of lace

So July - we had some amazing entries for this challenge; such interesting takes of the theme

Who won in July?  Well, it was

No 5 - My Specialist

In other news we have a new team member:

I'm Berina. I'm from India, currently living in Park Ridge, New Jersey with my husband and 20 month old daughter. I've been crafting in some way or other, right from my childhood. I used to make simple greeting cards for my family, learnt to make both fabric as well as paper flowers, tried my hand at embroidery, learnt to crochet and made some jewelry. I started blogging only a few years ago and that is when I came to know about the awesome world of paper crafting and blogging. From then on, there's no stopping. I like to experiment new styles and techniques. I love to learn new stuff and get creative. I create CAS cards as well as layered cards and everything in between. I love the simplicity of the CAS cards and the beauty of cards with layers and lots of embellishments. Like most of us, I find crafting to be really a stress buster.

Welcome Berina and we cannot wait to see some more examples of your beautiful work
