Welcome to the blog everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year! 
Thanks to everyone who played in our Snowy Christmas Challenge, the spotlight and 30.00 GC winners are listed below this post so be sure to check them out.

 Stampotique offers quite a variety of sarcastic stamps and phrases and although not required, we hope that you will use one in your creation

We also have a wonderful new guest designer for January and her name is Ali Wiseman we are so excited to have her this month
Here is a little bit about Ali
:

Hello Lovelies!
I’m Ali, and I live on the beautiful South Coast of the U.K., near Portsmouth, with my gorgeous daughter Aimee, and our three year old Labrador, Archie. 
I’ve always enjoyed crafting since I was a child and have tried everything from sewing to lace making, stamping, card making and to mixed media! But I’ve definitely found my real love in mixed media art journaling. My love of art journaling only increased further when I was introduced to the gorgeous Stampotique stamps by my bestie, and I blame her totally for my ever increasing collection! 
I’m over the moon to have been asked to be this month’s guest designer and really hope you all enjoy what I create! 
If you’d like to see more of my creations please head over to Instagram and @ali.craftcreations

We have a wonderful new release for January, make sure to check those out here:
