Anything Goes monthly challenge. This is a firm favorite with 
everyone and we get some amazing entries every time...

her Design Team debut- you are so welcome Debra!


Debra from Crafted by Debra
 
 Hi, I'm Debra from craftedbydebra.blogspot.co.uk. I live in East Yorkshire with my husband and have two grown up sons. I was an avid cross stitcher until I lost a lot of the sensation in my hands due to Multiple Sclerosis. Desperate to do something crafty again I tried card making and that was it, completely hooked!! I love stamping and enjoy making really feminine cards with copious amounts of glitter so everything including our three cats are always very sparkly. I’m absolutely thrilled to have been asked to join the other fabulous Design Team members and hope that you enjoy my crafty creations.

Also joining us this week is another fabulous Guest Designer 
Migdalia- her box card is so inspiring, its gorgeous. Well done!

Guest Designer

Hello to all! My name is Migdalia from Crafting with Creative M. I am from New York.

The team has really excelled this week and given you a lot of fabulous inspiration, so its all down to you now to share your fabulous projects with us and also have the chance to win our great prize!
