I'm very pleased to announce the set of themes and colours for the coming year. I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the mix will be that the themes and colours will not be the same letter for each challenge. I have also sorted out some new prizes too.
I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.
(winner of #67)
Greetings from hot and humid Durban, South Africa. I’m Glenda and I’m delighted to be the guest designer for this challenge.
I started making cards about twenty years ago after a vacation in the UK. I visited a well-known department store in London and was blown away by their huge selection of cards. When I returned home I started experimenting for myself and the bug had bitten! Over the years I have tried all different techniques but when I was introduced to this prick ‘n stitch technique about 10 years ago, I was smitten. I have always done embroidery, my Granny taught me initially, so to combine that with card making was bliss for me. I have added a Cuttlebug, punches and the odd stamp, to my arsenal and now I have fun using these to enhance my stitching. Nearly three years ago now, I started a blog so that I could enter competitions and this opened up a whole new world for me. The enjoyment that I get from this craft is very fulfilling (and maybe even a little obsessive!)
I hope that my card inspires you and I can’t wait to see what you create.
Glenda has chosen
the letter G for Glossy Accents which has been teamed with S for the colour Slate blue.
You can use glossy accents (or equivalent) anywhere on your card or butterfly.
You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.If you make your project using both the theme letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize.
