Good morning, crafters.
It was great to see your stitched creations this week. Thanks for joining our challenge.
January is quickly coming to an end, but we’re still at the beginning of the new year. It’s still time to set goals or think about changes you might want to make.
This week we’ll challenge you to think about what you want more of in 2017!
What do you want more of?
More glitter? More time? More magic? More vegetables? More love? More books? ... show it to us on your card and we hope that you'll get it, whatever it is!
And, if you like, tell us a few words about it on your blog.
If you’re curious what the Design Team longs for 2017, have a look at our cards or our individual blogs.

It's Nat here bringing you my first dare of 2017!
Thanks to everyone who played along with Kathy's "New!" challenge last week.
This week I am hoping that you'll be raiding your sewing box or dragging your sewing machine out because I want you to feature stitching on your cards as a real eye-catching element!
You can do some good old hand-stitching with embroidery floss and a needle, machine sewing or even feature dies and stamps that do the stitching for you, or why not draw your own stitched designs by hand?
So many possibilities!

Thank you so much for joining in with us last week - wasn't that a beautiful Inspiration photo Sharon chose to start off the new year?
This week it's Kathy here with a challenge I hope you'll enjoy.
It's the start of a new year, so I'd like you to try something new to you this week. It could be a technique, a card fold, or something else that you've never done before.
A little challenge to yourself maybe to step out of your comfort zone.....
Don't forget to check our individual blogs to find out what's "New" about our cards

Happy New Year everyone!
It's Sharon here, and I'm delighted to be the one choosing the inspirational photo for the very first dare of 2017.
We hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and that Santa brought you all the new crafty goodies you asked for. We are planning to bring you lots of fabulous inspiration this year, as always, so hope you'll join in with the dares as much as possible.
We are thrilled to announce that the wonderful Enfys Cashmore who, after several Guest Designer spots over the years, will now be a fully-fledged member of our team. You've probably seen her work for various manufacturers, so will understand our excitement at having her designing with us too!
So as it's our first challenge of the month here's our Wintry, January Elemental Inspiration photo - please use at least 3 elements from the pic on your card (one of those elements can be the colour scheme).
and here's some inspiration from the Design Team:
