Challenge #47 Winter Wonderland

Hello and Welcome back to our challenges here at Love to Create!!
Happy New Year to all and on to a new Challenge for 2013

The team is ready to kick the New Year off with more fabulous creations that we hope will inspire you!

Our theme for this week's challenge is 

Winter Wonderland

To start off our first challenge of 2013 we have two of  our favorite sponsors 
both offering some fabulous prizes!

 Our first sponsor is everyone's favorite Bugaboo Stamps 

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Our second sponsor is the Fabulous QKR Stampede

Do you have a sense of humor? Are you looking for a cute stamp? Then, we are the company for you! QKR Stampede is the somewhat cute somewhat quirky rubber and digital stamp company. We Showcase the artwork of Ken Herrod, who had a unique, somewhat quirky style with lots of humor and character. You are sure to get a chuckle out of our stamps! We have been offering our unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years. At QKR Stampede our images are available as unmounted, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps! If QKR Stampede Stamps aren't exactly what you are looking for, Don't miss out on the sister companies: Eureka Stamps, Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps, or the newest addition; Alluring Impressions.

Offering a fabulous prize of 5 digital stamps of winner's choice!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week


Hi everyone! My name is Lisa and I'm from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. I got started into card making about a year ago and decided I wanted to enter some challenges. So out of that desire, my blog was born at the end of October. However, what started out as a place to post cards has developed into something so much more. I showcase other artists' work, spotlight comments that have made a difference to me, offer up thoughts and graphics that are motivational in nature and explore the concept of gratitude. Mixed in among these specific themes I share my creative endeavors--card making, drawing & digital design, nail art, etc.--with the world. My goal is for my blog to become a place of inspiration on many different levels. I am very excited to be dipping my toes into the design team world and am happy to be a guest designer for the Love to Create Challenge.

Lisa's wonderful creation is showcasing

  4. Thanks to Joann for choosing me as a GDT for this challenge, I got to use a sponsor image. Thanks to QKR Stampede I got to use the most adorable little digi called sledding. Thanks to the card I made using the digi from the sponsor for the challenge Joann contacted me for, I placed in challenges for the very first time ever--one top five and one top three with this card. Just wanted to share my news with you guys and say thanks once again for having me as a guest designer!
