First of all may I wish everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. I hope the heads aren't too bad this morning. This is certainly a timed posting as I am sure I won't be up this early.
Our sponsor for our first challenge this year is Sharon Duncan.
Sharon sponsored us last year and very kindly asked us if we would like her to sponsor us again. Of course we said yes and between us we have settled on the Olympics as our theme. To that end Sharon sent us 4 of her great Embossibilities sheets. One each appropriate in design and colour for England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
They are lovely papers and for my Design Team contribution I have made a fine (1/2 cm) weave paper using the 4 sheets and used the result as the backing paper for a couple of ATC's. I have then used peel off O's as the rings, and numbers for the year - all coloured appropriately with marker pens. The sporting 3D teddy toppers were purchased from The Art of Craft.
Sharon's very generous prize is 'Embossibilities Elegance' and 'Embossibilities Texture Prints' CD with some printable papers and embellishments.
We look forward to the New Year of 2012 and to many new challenges.
