Challenge # 7 A Simple Stepper Card

Welcome to our  NEW blog.  
We recognise, whilst there are many challenge blogs for all
forms of papercrafts and card making, so why a new one ? 
We hope to reach newbies, to provide  new challenges where you can learn
 new techniques and new skills. 
Many seasoned challengers may also enjoy joining in our
challenges to re-awaken long lost skills and techniques., or
just to join in for the fun of it. 

What would you like to see in future challenges?
We would love to know, please add your requests in the Comments.
Thank you, be patient with us, 

Thank you to those who ventured along, by entering
our last challenge  - #6 Spotlight Technique
Choosing winners is a difficult task but we prefer to give
credit rather than use a Random indicator.
Margaret has chosen our Top 3 winners, but first there is our.....

Please welcome to the  design team

Creative Smiles

My name is Donna Ellis, also known on line as “de” (from my pottery throwing days). Short n Sweet - married to the love of my life in “rural” Central Florida, stamping became my craft of choice as health concerns caused me to give up activities and other crafting mediums. Though I’ve worked in both corporate America and for stamp companies, I also volunteered in a number of capacities. These days it is very rewarding sharing artwork with my on-line friends. I’d love for you to visit my blog Creative Smiles. I promise to visit your blog in return 

So time to get started on our new challenge.
