Current challenge

Hello everyone - glad that you´ve come back to have a look at our second challenge 2022 and the first moodboard for this year! 
It´s a little bit of a valentine theme... if you like to craft for this occassion, otherwise you of course can create a card for your family and friends too. ;-)

If you want to play along (this challenge is open until 07.02.2022) you will get the chance to win a 25,-€ gift card for the Create a smile shop .

Fitting the current mood board our two guest designers made adorable cards, let´s have a closer look.

Last times winner Sandra (flick_werk_oase) made this lovely pastel bird(house) greeting card using Aus meinem Nest.

And Sandra (erdmannsandra) made this cute little love-letter sending racoon using GlückspostServus and Confetti hearts stencil.
