GL12 Our Furry Friends

Hello blog stampers and crafters!!  Welcome to the Gingerloft challenge.  I am glad that you are here.  We have some real eye candy this challenge using our Gingerloft digis.  The GDT and DT have just outdone themselves this challenge.  We want to see Furry Friends this challenge.  I am such an animal lover and that is probobly why I draw alot of animals.  So lets get those animal digis and stamps out and see what you can do.  Look around the Gingerloft store and we have many freebie animals there too.  You have until March 5 at midnight to play.  Our top 3 become our next GDT and the winner will receive our new Bentley Bear spring time digi set.
You could win this!!

First up is our GDT

Hi I am E.T from Karachi, Pakistan. I have been making cards since forever, blogging about them since 2008. I was SO bad at first, I had nothing to work with. We have no inks, stamps or papers here. I managed to work around all this. I make my own sentiments, design my own paper. I recently got addicted to Color Q inks and let me tell you this, I CANT work around NOT having those in my stash! It was fun to colour this particular image because I used my dried up washable markers. For details you can visit my blog.

Hi! My name's Claire but I'm also known as Happy Days.

I've been crafting in one form or another for as long as I can remember, but historically was a textiles girl. I started playing with paper about a year ago and am now completely hooked. My biggest craft passions are my Distress Inks and Promarkers. I love working with both fantasy and nature images, but am always happy to work with whatever is on offer! I design regularly for two companies and also do some paid freelance work for a few others.

I'm thrilled to be GD for Gingerloft this time and absolutely loved working with the image from the store. I hope my card inspires you to come and join the challenge

I'm Katrina, I'm 24 I have two adorable daughters and a wonderful Husband.  I was so surprised when my card came in as 'top three' at Gingerloft challenge #10. I have been crafting for 4 years and I have always felt I have an artistic side but it never had a chance to let it shine until I made my eldest daughters birth announcements back in 2007, and it has spiralled from there, Christening Invitations, Thank You's, Wedding invitations and now general cards! my original crafting box is now demoted to 'scraps'!  I mainly make cards but have tried scrap-booking, mini books and 3D Paper Models.  I love Stamping, Digi Stamps, Making Paper Flowers and my Pro-Markers, and i'm always open to learning techniques!  I love to spend a night in with my mum and craft while my Husband and Dad go to the pub!

Hi! My name is Dawn and I have been an avid paper crafter for the last almost three years. Prior to that I did sewing and wood projects.I have had my craft blog almost two years,
My blog is a mixture of cards, scrapbooks and fun, friendship and paper crafts, where everyone is at the same level no matter how talented or experienced.
I try to fit as many challenges in as I can in my busy schedule because I love testing myself to learn and attempt everything.
