March Challenge - Mid Point Inspiration

Hi everyone, 
Firstly I would like to introduce you to a brand new Creative Team member.

My name is Gale  and I live in Texas in the USA. I have always been crafty and being retired gives me plenty of time for my hobby of coloring and making cards. I started out with sewing, then embroidery, cross stitch and jewelry making. My sister got me into scrapbooking and then I started stamping and making cards a few years ago. I enjoy using digital stamps and love to bring them alive with my Copic markers. I have my Copic certifications, but I am now working on learning to colour with my Prismacolor pencils, there is always something more to learn. if you would like to see more of more work head over to my blog at Gale's Stamping Corner.

and now onto the mid point March Challenge inspiration projects. For more information on any of the projects just click on the name to be taken to their personal blog.

Winners for February

Hi Everyone
I am running late with posting the first winners of the year - the month definitely got away from me so without further ado 
using Random Org here is the winner for the February Challenge 

#1 Lizzie's Crafting Retreat
Please email using February winner in the subject line with your 3 image selections and I will send them through.
Unfortunately we had no entries with Morgan's images so no monthly pick this month.

We do however have the Creative Team favourites, these participants were hand picked by the  Creative Team members.

Cathie's favourite is ##19 Jackie Cornfield

Its coloured beautifully and I love the non cluttered card design and the lovely and bright coordinated colour scheme.

Sherry's favourite is #36 Carol Gill
I love the vintage look of this stunning card. With the beautifully framed image, color combo, feathers and roses.

Judy's favourite is #31 Hester
I was drawn to the vintage style of this beautifully shaped 
and embellished project!

Arlene's favourite is # 32 Cicci with the pen 

I connect with the coloring and image.  The colors and feel appeal to me.

Faith's favourite is #46 Mema's Crafts

This card jumped out to me, with it's wonderful colouring and great selection of papers.

Annette's favourite is #40 Heather M

I absolutely love this project. Great design, love the image and so beautifully coloured. Perfect frame and touch of flower embellishments not overdoing this gorgeous project. The timber background designer paper really projects this fabulously coloured image. Beautiful work. 

Congratulations and Well Done!!!

March Challenge

Hello everyone,
well here we are at the start of another monthly challenge, thank you for everyone who entered last month, stay tuned to the blog in the next week when we will announce the winners.
I also want to introduce you to a newest member of the creative team - 
Evie has been crafting since she was a teenager and with a fondness for learning; she would try her hand at any craft and/or technique. When she is not crafting she is spending her time playing her flute and piccolo in her local community bands. She also helps out by  makes greeting cards to donate to various organisations including those she has performed for. When Evie isn't busy making music or cards she can be seen chasing after her four year old son and then running from him! Evie is happily married and currently resides in West Virginia but her heart will always be in North Carolina go 'heels!' If you would like to see more of my work head over to my blog at Evie Does it Crafts.

Now onto the March challenge where you will be playing for any 3 of the below seven images
And of course anyone using a Morgan image will go into the running to be the monthly pick and be able to choose one image from the selection above.
So without further ado, onto to the inspiration projects. For more information regarding any of the projects just click on the name to be taken to their personal blog.
