New Guest Designer + Winner!

Hope your having a great week. Can you believe it is 1st December already? The girls are already nagging for the Christmas decorations to go up so look like we'll be doing this together on Saturday. Well it is time to introduce you to my new Guest designer. Before I do though I would like to say a HUGE thank you to dear COCO who did an amazing job and created some beautiful cards thoughout November. Thank you COCO!

My new guest designer is Inge Groot. Wow... I am so happy to have this talented lady on my team. I adore her work so much!!! Inge I am one of your biggest fans! Now Inge will tell you a little about herself:

December/January Guest Designer

Inge Groot - Netherlands

I am a working mom, married to my high school sweetheart and we have two girls together. We live in the Netherlands in a small town called Bovenkarspel.

As long as I can remember I love being busy with “crafty” things. I fell in love with stamping and the possibilities of stamps in 2003 since then , I must confess ;), I am a rubber addict! I discovered blogs a couple of years ago and learned so much from a lot of the stamping girls out there. I’m designing for Card Art, Whiff of Joy, Magnolia, Pink Cat Studio and Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps. It is so much fun and a great chance to get to know a lot of people from all over the world who are loving to do the same thing… create something nice, share this and have fun doing that.

Below is Inge's beautiful card for Bunny Zoe's Crafts using Belle's and Whistles Sunshine and Apples. Inge creates the most fantastic layouts and her colouring is to die for!

I got a little behind after feeling poorly last week so don't have a card to show today for A Spoon Full of Sugar, but be sure to check out the new challenge. As always the girls cards are fabulously inspiring!

The Winner of my Blog Candy for the cute stamp Wags 'n Whiskers Zoe and Gemma's Snow Fun is Maria Therese. Congratulations Maria! Please email me at so I can arrange for your prize to be sent.

Here are your random numbers:

High Hopes Challenge 54 - Santa

Our new challenge has just started over at the High Hopes blog and this week our wonderful guest Diva Michelle is asking you to get out your Santa stamps. High Hopes has so many wonderful Santa images amongst it's huge catalogue. If you don't have any Santa's in your collection your are still welcome to join in... just show us your festive creations!

Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the stamp Snowlady Surprise.

If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps I have a fantastic selection over in my store. Also you will find some of the High Hopes Santa's at amazing prices over in my Christmas Sale. You'll even find Santa's Portrait as used on my project today :-)

I was short on time this week but noticed this hot chocolate set that Zoe had chosen for her teacher was crying out for a little tag. So I coloured my Santa Portrait in the wacky colours to match the mug. I have again watercoloured today. Santa's face has been coloured in Distress inks: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and worn lipstick. I have added shadows to his beard and hair using Weathered wood. The green on his hat is coloured in Twinkling H2o Key Lime and then shadows added with Distress ink Peeled Paint. The orange is Distess ink Spiced Marmalade with a little H2o Persimmon to deepen the colour and add the twinkles. To finish I cut a white pom pom in half so it fit flat on the paper and added some stickles.

The cardstock for the tag is also sparkly and from the DCWV Taj Mahal stack. For some more fun I added the pop pom ribbon. Then a cute little bow with a snowflake 2 charm and red 4mm flat back pearl to finish.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the team.

Just a quick post as we are off Grocery shopping *groan* but as soon as I get back i'll announce the winner of the cute Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Bernadette. You haven't entered yet? Well just scroll down a few posts as there is still time!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
