Not Just Cards Challenge Blog

Theme Always Anything Goes
Unlimited Entries

Unlimited fun!!

All we ask is you follow us please

Its almost Christmas time so I would like wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Happy New year

A big thank you to everyone who joined in our challenges
A big thank you to all our wonderful Sponsors this year
and a BIG thank you to all the design team members past and present

I look forward to bringing you more wonderful challenges with some more lovely sponsors in 2016
If you would like to sponsor us in 2016 please get in touch

The challenges are monthly. These will be the first Monday of the month. We will still have lots of fantastic sponsors and a fantastic design team. I have relaxed things for the team, they are now welcome to make cards or non card projects, but we always welcome you to try something new.

We also appreciate every single one of you that joins in our challenges but as you can see by todays post our team is always busy creating and playing. So, I have taken the choice to make commenting optional for our team. I am sure you can image the amount of work I throw at the girls and they are an amazing team, they just get on with it and a lot more, so I hope you are happy with this choice but we will, where we can, make time to come and visit you.

The lucky winners this week

The SLS Lines winner is

The Robyns Fettish winner is

The Shadow Clocksy winner is

Please email me at 
with NJC Challenge Winner and add which prize you won
and don't forget to grab your badge and wear it with pride.

I am so delighted to sponsor this challenge. I absolutely love Art & Crafts! 

I have a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. But my first drawing lessons were received from my father, he is a painter too.

For many years, I painted portraits, caricatures and child´s illustrations.

My hope is that you find in my shop graphics that make you smile and inspire you to create many things :)
