Wednesday, January 2, 2013


No challenge this week - we'll be back with our first challenge of 2013 a week from today - Wednesday, January 9th.  However, we wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a healthy and prosperous New Year and may 2013 bring you much success in all of your artistic pursuits!

As we bring in the new year, we are also bringing in new designers on the Frilly and Funkie design team.  But sadly that means we are saying goodbye to some of the amazing designers who have been with us since we launched the challenge early in 2012.  These designers have wonderful things in store for them in 2013 and they are moving forward to fulfill their artistic potential.  They are back with us today to share one of their favorite pieces of artwork from 2012.  Please help me thank these wonderful ladies and to wish them the best of success in their artistic futures:

Anita Houston - The Artful Maven Haven

Marjie Kemper - She Who Stamps and Scraps

See the original post here

And please join me in giving a warm welcome to the new designers who are coming on board with us here at Frilly and Funkie.  We have some of their favorite projects from 2012 to share as we kick off their term with us.

Donna Gibson - From My Art 2 Yours

And we are so fortunate to have these two talented designers staying on with us for another term:

Sue Carrington - Stamping Sue Style

Rebecca Deeprose - Paper Primrose

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We are looking forward to lots of great challenges and tutorials in the upcoming year.  Thank you so much for all your visits and support in 2012 and we hope to see lots of you in 2013!
