Challenge #147

Hi everyone! Happy New Year from Wendi, Emma and the Design Team.  We all hope that 2014 is a happy and healthy one.  We hope you enjoy what we have in store for you in the coming months, so, without further ado, let's get on to the first challenge of the new year.

Kevin of McCrafty's Cards

Hi! My name is Kevin, I've been card making for about 6 years now, I started card making when I had to pack up work due to ill health.  My wife got me started and I've never looked back and being blind in one eye has not stopped me, it just takes me a bit longer to produce my finished cards.

Welcome, Kevin, to our happy team!

The attention to detail on this is wonderful and the amount of depth in the design is superb.


The lovely clean feel of the gingham, and the simple colour scheme along with the beautiful die cutting is just gorgeous.

This week we also have a special mention for
