January 2019 challenge

If your designs are for Christmas, please feel free to add for my CHNC weekly challenge, which is always anything goes as long as it's Christmas, with an optional theme each week.

Remember that for this Patterned Paper challenge designs can be for any occasion

Before I go any further I need to tell you that, sadly, four of my 2018 team are not able to commit to being on the DT for a further six months, so we say goodbye to Iwona, Margaret, Monica and Wendy, with a big thank you to them for their support and wonderful designs that they have shared month after month. We will miss them, but hope to see them here entering our challenges.

This means that we are welcoming four new DT members:

I'm Claudia and I turned 42 in July. I'm living in Belgium. I'm married for the past 14 years with Wim and we have 2 childeren. Jarno is our son and he is almost 16 and Joran our daughter is almost 12. I've been making card for 6 years now. At first I was making a lot of 3D cards, than I find out about coloring gorgous digi's and crafting and never stopt doing it since then I like different styles and I like to try someting new and to working with materials, like wood, metals, fabrics,..... Since this year I have discover the project life and ATC and totally love it.
I work 4 days a week as administratief assistant.

I work part-time in a well known chemist, which I've done for 22 years (I'm 42 now so it's been my only real job). I'm married to Rich, and we have two great kids, one of each, aged 8 and 14. We have one cat, aged 16, and one pup , aged 7 months. I make cards for pure enjoyment for family and friends. I've been making them for about eight years now. I don't really stick to one theme as I like trying all sorts, but if I had to pick a favourite, it would be colouring Mo Manning stamps, and making easel cards. I'm lucky enough to have my own little craft room so I can go and tuck myself away whenever time allows.

I'm Lisbeth, born on May 24, 1970 and have been married to Dirk 19j together we have 2 children.Hanne of 15j and 14j of Koen. We live in the beautiful province of Antwerp (Belgium) in the heart of the Kempen (Malle). With my daughter, I am very busy with crafts ex. card making, but also crafts.
We have one dog family together .If we also like hiking. I started with 3D maps, but the last time I actually scrap only. Christmas cards especially cherish most.

I have been a crafter all my life - I enjoy all sorts of crafts but my current passion is paper crafting. At the moment I live in the UK but for the previous 17 years I have been an expat, living in Australia, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi and India. Whilst overseas I always managed to find friends who also wanted to craft! Now back in England I spend a lot of time in my craft room. I like to play with different techniques, making both mainstream items and more left of centre projects. I use a lot of digi images but also like getting inky…and I love different folds, ATCs and fat pages! My intention every year is to make all my Christmas cards before I get to November – and every year I run late! I am hoping to catch up this year soon!!

Here are the designs from myself and the rest of my wonderful team - I am so grateful to them for sharing their lovely designs:

  8. Wonderful DT cards. {I added a card but it didn't show up. So I tried again, but was told I'd already entered it. However, I still don't see my card... or ANY cards in the link up. Not sure if it my ISP or something wrong with linky not displaying. Just wanted to give you a head's up.]

  9. Oops. Please ignore my last post. The inlinks pics showed up on the top of the page. And, as I thought there would be... there are lots of great cards.
