Thank you to everyone who played along with challenge #194!!!
You may have noticed that we did not kick off a new challenge on Friday. We are taking a break from challenges and instead will be doing more design team posts and lots of giveaways – so be sure to stop back for all the fun!
Challenge #194 was full of fun, with lots of gift related creations.
Congrats and a $20.00 YNS egift card goes to participant #8 Dawn E, who created a card with the YNS Christmas Avocado set with a tree and presents underneath. Please use the contact us link at the bottom of the site to claim your prize and have fun shopping!!!
Now on to the Top Pick from the challenge. Marilyn created gift tags full of sparkle, snow and even a gift.
Kecia created a wonderful snow filled background on her card. That car is determined to make it to YOUR house for the holidays!
This is Kecia’s last post as a guest, but be sure to follow her on Instagram to continue seeing all of her wonderful creations, Instagram: @osukecia. Thank you Kecia for inspiring us all throughout December! We appreciate all the creativity you shared with us all.

Guest Roslyn Jin is sharing her final guest creation today. I know, say it ain’t so! Time flies when you are having fun, right???!!!
Roslyn’s card features lots of balloons, along with lots of Hammie the hamsters!
Roslyn’s coloring matches the patterned paper perfectly. The scallops create a ledge for all the hammies to line up on.
Thank you Roslyn for sharing so many inspiring creations with us all month long! All your cards are colorful, cute and oh so much fun! Continue to see more of Roslyn’s work by following her on Instagram: @roz4short and YouTube: Wing it with Ros.

Guest Kecia Bassham is sharing how fun a clean and simple card can be. The giraffe from Home-stretch is stretching high into the clouds. The inked circle acts as the sky, with die cut clouds layered on top.
