Happy October, turns out that there are now less than 80 days until Christmas!
A big thank you to everyone who played along with Challenge #20; Sherri and I will be back later this week to Trim the Tree. Your cards were all just gorgeous for this challenge so the 'judging' process may take some time.
It's time for a new challenge and to welcome a new elf! Let's all say 'hi' to the lovely Sarah from Funky Fossil Designs! I've been a big fan of Sarah's work for quite some time and a little while ago I was delighted to discover that also has her own papercrafting shop selling stencils, stamps and MDF shapes.
I am so excited to be one of Jo’s Guest Elves for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge – let’s face it, now that we are in October I really could do with getting on with my Christmas card making! I am a keen papercrafter who has been playing with stamps, stencils, inks and paints for over a decade. I am lucky enough to design for a number of papercrafting magazines and, more recently, I have opened my online shop – www.funkyfossil.co.uk – where I sell stencils that we laser cut ourselves. I have added stamps to the product range over the past 6 months which range from cute to artsy. I would love it if you came over to the store to check out what we have on offer. On top of my crafty endeavours, I work full time, have two teenage boys, a very cute dog and a very understanding husband (who likes working the laser cutter). You can find me on my blog – www.funkyfossildesigns.blogspot.com or on Instagram at www.Instagram.com/funkyfossildesigns .
For Challenge #21 we'd love to see cards featuring Woodland Creatures.
Here's Sarah's gorgeous card featuring images from her new stencil and stamp ranges.
Here's my card.
