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

Rijacki using Rocket and Rosie, image #84
