January Monthly Mix Challenge


Happy New Year and welcome to our first challenge of 2020! This month, our Challenge Hostess is Cathy Tidwell and she has a great challenge for you!

From Cathy:

Hey Y’all!  Cat here with you first challenge of this wonderful new year!  My challenge is called Let’s Reflect and as the title says, let’s reflect on last years cards, just a bit!  For this challenge, you are to take a card you made from last year and create a do-over, an update or an adjustments to it. It’s simple, just take a card you made from last year and use at least ONE element you used on the card to make a new card!  It can even be as simple as mine where I just used the same stamp set! I used the Colossal Coneflower stamp set for both cards!  It’s pretty simple so just have fun!   

Here is my example:

    Hello Gina K. I came across your channel via Jennifer Mcguire and I have been trying to play catchup I watch your tutorials all day as well as keeping up with Jennifer Mcguire. I even purchased a big shot die cutter It has been a pleasure watching and I hope to be able to purchase as many of your products as I can I am new to stamping not crafting, but I enjoy stamping almost as much as making jewelry, sewing, and whatever else I can put my hands to learning. I love your technique elegant and simple. I wish I could show you the cards I have made inspired by you.

    Just wondering if the HA/GKD collaboration stamp set counts as a GKD stamp for the challenge. If so, I can play along for sure. Love the new Cone Flower card–just gorgeous!

    I want to purchase the coneflower stamp set with my VISA card but don’t want to use PayPal. I don’t see where I can do that.
