This challenge will last for the whole month of May 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

For my image, I used a fun digi by Dilly Beans Stamps called Framed Snowman 2. I coloured him with Copic markers, added him to a snowflake cardstock from my stash, and added a sticker sentiment by Kaisercraft.

Can you believe it? CRAFT Challenge is already 8 years old. Originally started by Tracy from Just Tracy Crafts and with a DT mostly recruited from Trimcraft forum members (Hence the term CRAFT Challenge, which stood for Crafters Residing Are Friendly Trimmies. Or if you wished alternative meaning of Can’t Remember A Flipping Thing) on the 4th of May 2009.
We have now grown to be a large team of Design Team Members from all around the world, supplemented with several Guest Designers who join us for a month or a week at a time.
 
We have always welcomed all kinds of craft, not just paper craft (unless specifically stated so in the challenge at the time) and are happy to have such a large group of faithful followers.
So, how are we going to celebrate this milestone?

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 413 – 27th of April – Inspired by a Book

The CRAFT Design Team is challenging you to create a card based on a book. For this challenge, the book I picked is called, “Grumpy Old Men by David Quantick”. The digi stamp I selected is by Bugaboo Stamps called, “GUS BIRTHDAY – OLD FART.” I love Bugaboo Stamps, but Ihave a soft spot in my heart for Gus and Stella. I coloured Gus with my Copic Marker, and added Glossy Accents to his glasses for that little extra. The stamp comes with the sentiment, but I wanted a slightly different arrangement so I computer generated it to fit with my card design.
