Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - January Challenge

Hello and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - January challenge taking place right here on my blog! I'm so glad you stopped by today and I would love for you to link up your crafty makes too. There were lots of wonderful entries in December, thank you all so much for joining! My Top Picks with a twist are at the end of the post.

As a reminder, the Papercrafters Year in Review hop is going on now for a couple more days, if you would like to share your own favorites of 2023 you can still link up with us, or you can simply hop along. I'm having a small giveaway on my own blog but it does end on January 5th.

I'm sure most of you know by now, the theme is now always............

Anything Goes

and instead of a challenge theme there will be a top pick twist, meaning the top picks will each have something in common. But nobody knows what the twist will be (not even me) and will be inspired by YOUR creations. So do link up all your new or recently created crafty makes (any type of craft) for your chance to have your project featured the next month! The linky tool is at the end of the post.

Here is my share:

The background was done using Distress Oxide inks using the smooshing technique and then I used a torn paper mask to make some snowy hills. Pine tree is Lavinia's Fairy Fir Tree (small) and I also used part of Lavinia's quote Snow Falls on the bottom. The Pheasants are part of the Aall and Create set Pheasant. A white Posca pen was used for falling snow and I also used a small Penny Black snowflake stamped onto the background. Sorry I don't remember anymore which set Let is Snow is from. I finished off by adding a few die cut snowflakes (Penny Black Dancing Snowflake dies) and a Sakura Stardust pen was used for some frosty accents.

December Top Picks with a Twist

Many thanks to everyone who joined in last month. There were so many fabulous entries and as always it's not easy to select a theme but I do enjoy that part of the challenge and the Top Pick twist from the December entries is..........."Winter Wonders".

Congratulations everyone! Well deserved recongnition! Your top pick logo is below, you may place it on your own blogs if you like to :)

I will continue to pin the top picks to the dedicated Pinterest board, but will also include photo and link back to the original blogs/sites here. These will be removed at the start of the new challenge to stay in compliance with GDPR.

To join in this month's challenge please use the linky tool below. You have until Wednesday January 31st to play along! 

A few things to remember:
  • You may combine with any other challenges.
  • You may use any brand of stamps/digis/products (no company restriction).
  • Please try to limit your linked up cards to 3 entries per month - it's ok if you end up with more than 3 but I may not be able to visit your entries after the 3rd.
  • Please do include a link back here to my blog in your blog post.
  • Backlinking to a recent post IS allowed.
  • Digital products are allowed and very welcome but the final piece has to be a physical handmade creation, not just digital
