TTCRD- Anything goes Challenge for Dec. 5th-11th

Hi Everyone, Deonna here posting for Team A this week. For Cecelia, Rijacki, Joi, Hayley, Dots2lines and our guest Designer Maxine, we'd like to welcome you to our new

Anything goes challenge.

Sponsored by


Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and 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 had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some. I opened my shop a month later so I could sponsor challenges and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.
I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby :D

You could be the lucky winner of 3 digital images of your choice.

Now let's see what our team came up with to inspire us
Guest Designer Maxine Diffey using Wild Roses image no 68 


Cecilia Gunnarsson using  Wild Roses image no 68 




Rijacki using Rocket and Rosie, image #84







Joi  using Miki and Shila 






Hayley Warren  using Snow Happy



Dots2Lines using  Wild Roses image no 68

This week's top 3, in no order, selected by Kimberly are:

I am a pushover for penguins, they always make me happy and smile. One of my favorite movies is Happy Feet. It reminds me we can conquer all if we just set our mind to it. I also like the simplicity of this design. It is clean and crisp. 


This is a beautiful card; it was clean and simple along with the colors that caught my eye. A traditional Christmas card with a nice hint of gold
What is not to love about this card. That sweet little face, the pale pink colors, that awesome background paper, and the beautiful roses to accent. Not to mention the beautiful job of coloring. This card literally jumped off the page. 
Congratulations! Your cards / projects will be published in the January/February 2018 edition of Through the Craft Room Door and will also be placed into a drawing for a $5.00 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced here on the blog January 7th.
