Challenge 75 and Winners of Challenge 74


Hello everybody and welcome to our latest challenge!

Before I give you details of this challenge, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge, all the entries were fab, we loved looking at them all :)

Please scroll further down this post 
for the winners of last times challenge.



The theme of this fortnights challenge is
NEW BEGINNINGS
For example... Wedding, Engagement, New Baby, New Home, New Job, etc

Here are details of this challenges wonderful sponsor... 
Here's a bit about me and my shop
Andrea Norris, unknown artist - Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant and currently working on 4 design teams.  I'm a dancer (Argentine Tango and Ceroc) and a competitive badminton player.  It's amazing that I've managed to squeeze drawing into my schedule as well as being an obsessive crafter and creator of cards.  I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky.  I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours.  I love anything arty.  I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember.   In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings.  I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers.  I've had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I can gel with in January 2016.  Recently one of the challenge teams I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some.  Then people kept asking me for my drawings.  So I thought what the heck let's open a shop and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.   Welcome to my world, we're only at the beginning and I have so much more to offer.   Andrea x

This is such a sweet image and I love the shape of the card and the little details added to the ribbon.

Beautifully coloured and a great colour scheme.

A very elegant card - love the red and black and the bling on the ribbon.



Have fun crafting this fortnight.
