January Challenge Winners

Hi Everyone, what a freezing cold snap we are having, I will be very happy when it's finished!  Hope you are all cosy and warm where you are, we don't have snow but I hear lots of places do have snow, I think the seasons are a little out these days!!!

I have news today of January challenge winners, this time I have chosen more than one card to win a prize as there were SO many amazingly beautiful cards and over 250 entries to our challenge which for us, is some record!  So because of this we have 4 winners this time and here they are ...

Tammy and Marie's cards are just all about the paper and I really LOVE that, the paper is the star of the show and it is just so amazing what you can achieve just with paper... it is what inspires me EVERY day to do what I do. So I may be a teensy bit biased to all-about-the-paper cards BUT, these are just brilliant I think.

Tammy's card is simplicity itself and so very effective.  I love the little paper cuts stamped up, they just look like fabric squares dont they!

By Tammy

Marie's card is very clever using paper folding to make flower petals and leaves ... beautiful.  I love that you could use this same technique with all different paper designs for a totally different look each time.

Mandy and Jan's cards are just cutesy fabulous! They feature such cute images, how can you not love them! And coloured beautifully too on both cards, quite a skill to look natural and I think both have acheived this superbly.

I love the matting and layering of the papers on Mandy's card and such clever colouring matching too, olive and lilac is so cute!  I love the scalloped edge card, it is the similar to the bottom of the little lady's skirt.  Pretty flower work too on Mandy's card I like this way of tucking the sentiment in.

By Mandy
And Jan's card is adorable!  I love Jan's textures on this card, I love texture and I think it just gives a card the edge if it had lots of texture.  There is quite a bit of detail on this card but it still looks clean and fresh, very hard to achieve I think (it is for me anyway!)

Just, gorgeous aren't they!!!  Thank you and well done to all of you.
