Congratulations!  Please email us at 2craftycrittercrazies(at)gmail(dot)com so that we can arrange to get your prize to you.

     In addition, we've chosen Sherry G. aka Loose Stitches to be our Guest Designer in February.  We do hope she's available and would like to design with us.

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

     Before we get to our latest challenge, we want to introduce you to the newest DT members who are joining us this month.

CarolG   Hello from Hamilton, New Zealand.  I am a lifelong crafter who has tried all sorts of crafts (especially those with fabric and paper) and am lucky enough to have a craft-tolerant husband. We have four children & eight grandchildren all living in NZ. I blog monthly about my crafts, so check it out -   I don’t think I have a particular card making style but tend towards the unfussy, although I have been known to go WiLd from time to time and I do like to get inky.  I love challenges and trying new things,  so I’m looking forward to being part of such a creative team. Cheers, Carol Gunn.

Hello Everyone. Cheryl here -  Mum of 2 very energetic kids, Wife of very patient Husband, and lover of all things cute and cuddly (that's why I'm really pleased to be on the team).

I started crafting when my Grandma taught me to knit. I was 14 at the time and I have had some sort of crafty project on the go ever since. I love to make cards - not bought one from a shop for the last 11 years. I am addicted to card making; its my relaxation 'me' time.

I was a demo for Stampin Up! for over 2 years, and on the Design Team For the Love of Stamps - Hunkydory recently for a 6 month term. Occasionally I appear in Making Cards magazine - you can't beat the feeling of being in print, and there are regular get-togethers at my house in North Lincolnshire (UK) with my crafty friends where we try new products, eat cake, and drink tea.  I just love exchanging ideas and trying out new products.

My phobia of technology had prevented me from having a blog for a long time, but now I've got one called MY CRAFT SHED! I've joined Facebook, and even got an Instagram account - amazing! Can't think why I hadn't done this all sooner. Really looking forward to getting crafty with the Critters.

Hello, I’m Ine (creaine).

I’m a married mum, have one daughter, and work 3 days a week at a Bank. I live in a small town in the South of the Netherlands.

I think card making is a great hobby. I  have my own blog, a Facebook Page and a Dutch card group on Facebook, so come and have a look.

I’m working on a few other Design teams… a great job to do! I love to work with digi’s, sketches and embroidery on cards as well. Love to work with die-cuts. Further I enjoy swimming and reading and surfing on my computer. Looking forward to seeing all your creations!


Hi Ya'll.
2 Crafty Critter Crazies is a perfect fit for me. With 6 cats and a dog, you might see pet hair as an embellishment on my cards. I live in Mt. Juliet, TN, which is about 15 minutes east of Nashville.  I'm married, and am the Director of Education at Nashville College of Medical Careers. I have been crafting for 25 years, and it's my therapy...along with chocolate.  I'm looking forward to fun-filled Crafty Critter term.

Finally, the January Challenge!

     We're sponsored this month by Fabrika Fantasy and here's a little bit about them.

We are a small creative team writing and illustrating fantasy adventure and children's books. We love to draw fun and amusing characters, and are happy to offer them to you as digital stamps. We hope you like these digital images and they help make your creations bright, interesting and memorable!

     Here's a little inspiration from our team to encourage you and, this month, we're delighted to welcome two (!) Guest Designers, Donna M and Donna R.  

And now from the Design Team...

You have until 8 p.m. (Pacific time) on January 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.

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