I hope you'll both contact us by email about designing in January.

     Before we get to our latest challenge, we want to introduce you to two new DT members who are joining us this month.  We'll have additional team members joining us in January!

Lori Kobular

I grew up in Brick, NJ and I have lived in Toms River, NJ with my wonderful and supportive husband, Wayne, since 2000.  We have two grown daughters, Julie and Jenna and two crazy rescued huskies.  I was introduced to Scrapbooking at a Creative Memories Home Class in 1988 where I fell in love with scrapping!  I was a Creative Memories Consultant for 11 years, and have enjoyed designing for many companies over the years.  I love scrapbooking and making cards. My blog is here: Lori's Kreations.

Lisa Furbush

I am so excited to be working with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Design Team!  This is a wonderful group of designers with a passion for critters!  My blog is Don't Run With Scissors.  In November 2015 I was offered a dream job which relocated my fiancé and our three cats (Luna, MJ, and Stella) to Georgia from Connecticut.  I have been a paper crafter for over 20 years and love working with new techniques and mediums.    I have done many youtube videos on the techniques I have learned and look forward to starting my 'Technique Tuesdays' back up!  Thank you for joining us at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  I look forward to seeing your creations!

 December Challenge

     We're sponsored this month by Sasayaki Glitter, (a new sponsor for us and we're thrilled!) and here's a little bit about them.

     Here's a little inspiration from our team to encourage you and, this month, we're delighted to welcome our Guest Designer, Edwina.  She's done 2 cards for us with the same darling image - one in red and green, and one in non-traditional Christmas colors. 

Edwina using "Christmas Dragoon"

Thanks, Edwina!  These are fantastic!

Angela using "Tea Mouse"

Donna using "Tea Mouse "

Helen using "Candy Cane Penguin "

Lori using Tea Mouse

NanaConnie using "Christmas Dragoon"

Teresa (still on leave)

     You have until 8 p.m. (Pacific time) on December 30 to enter your project.

     If you'd like to be a future Guest Designer, don't forget to please tell us in a comment, or put GDT next to your name on your entry, or even send us an email (see sidebar for address.)  If you don't remember to do any of those, our DT will be choosing someone to invite from the entire list of those who participated.

     One last thing, be sure to come by on or after the 15th to see what we have in store for you in the mid-month post.  There may be some wonderful freebies available!

    If you have any problems with the Inlinkz, please leave us a comment or send an email and let us know.


  1. Welcome, new DTs! Love your cards, and everyone else's, too!

  2. Welcome to our new Teamies and a huge Thanks to Edwina for being our December Guest Designer! Great inspiration from all of you. :-D

  3. Congrats to Christine! Gorgeous card. Thanks for the inspiration and welcome to the new DT members.

  4. Wow thank you for the prize off to email you now..

  5. Congratulations on your win, Christine. Your mouse card is so lovely and tactile, I wish I could touch it.

    Welcome to the team Lori and Lisa. Lori, my 2nd son was born in Clifton, NJ, even though I am Canadian and moved back home when he was one. Lisa, I love that you relocated your cats with you. It breaks my heart when people feel they must re-home their pets when they have to make a big move.

    Congrats to our January guest designers – Donna M. and Donna R.

    Edwina, I was excited to hear that you were chosen to be our guest designer this month because I have admired your work for a long time. Your dragon cards are adorable, fabulous coloring and I LOVE what you did with that baker’s twine. Thanks for taking the time to play on our team.

    Angela, your digital card is sweet.

    Donna, I love that doily die cut in your Tea Mouse card.

    Helen, your Candy Cane Penguin card is splendid. Lovely design.

    Lisa, what a fantabulously creative way to use your Candy Cane Penguin image! I love the embossing and the “falalala” lettering too. Bravo!

    Lori, your Tea Mouse cards are darling. I like how you cut the doily in card #2 to look like the image is sitting on a doily-covered table.

    NanaConnie, your Dragon card is sweet, and I LOVE the sentiment, “Santa needed help”. You are as clever with your sentiments as you are talented with your coloring and designs.

    Thanks everyone for covering for me while I have been on leave. I am right eager to get back in and have already scheduled the mid-month post. It will have lots of Christmas goodies for both our craft and critter crazy followers.


  6. Oh my goodness! I've had a busy couple of months and too few critter cards. Why I'd be honored to be a Guest Designer in January. Will contact you by email as soon as I wake up a little more. LOL Congrats to Edwina as this month's GDT. She certainly always goes the extra mile. And congrats to the new members of the team. Such fabulous work by all. I'll be back in a few minutes with some KITTIES! xxD

    1. Yay! I look forward to working with you in January, Donna. I will be fully back then.

      PS - Is it my imagination or are there a lot of very talented Donnas around here? :)

  7. Oh dear, not awake yet. I almost forgot to mention Christine and her adorable House Mouse card. A well deserved win. Congrats! xxD

  8. Fabulous inspiration from the design team, thank you for a great challenge.
