 Happy New Year everyone!!! 

Sending you all positive and healthy vibes for 2022 and beyond. 

I am here to announce the top 5 for the December 6-19 2021 challenge - if you are a lucky winner you can go and grab our new TOP 5 badge :)   I hope you like what I have designed for you all.  

Also there is a new badge for those who like to play along.  

There are some big changes here at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge,

***We are going MONTHLY.  Challenges start at the 1st of the the month and run through to the 25th 11.30pm South Australian time.  This gives our team time to pick the winner(s) of the challenge and choose the top 3/5 ready for the challenge to go live a few days later.  So in a way bringing things back to how we had them before but the team get a few days to decide instead of under 24 hours in some cases. 

*** The team has shrunk significantly - as people are aware, life is quite busy and lots of things are happening in private lives. We decided not to have a Design Team Call at this time (unless there is a huge public outcry) I am the person who does all the setting up and at the moment life is very chaotic. The team I have are FABULOUS and they help me in so many ways. 

*** Our Instagram is back up and running and in the capable hands of Maria Giselle - so please dont forget to hashtag us  at #incywincydesignschallenge  who knows I may even get the hang of it and come and have a look...  

***Remember you dont have to have a blog to enter our challenges BUT if you want to be in the running for any prizes, so MUST LINK your project in the blog linky thing (at the bottom of the post) 

***Please make sure you follow the theme (you ALWAYS get 2 themes to choose from) , we do have some people try and just add their creation in the hoping we dont notice they do not fit the theme.  Just letting people know, if you dont fit either theme - you will NOT be considered for the prize

*** We only have a handful of sponsor this year, mainly due to me not having a lot of time to chase and coordinate them all.  We have loved all of our generous sponsors over the years. Depending how the future goes things may get back to normal next year - or this might work perfectly !! 

Anyway I think thats all for now, you still have time to play along with the current challenge which you can find HERE, HERE, HERE

so in no particular order - here are the top 5 I have chosen

8 Carol Gill 

9 Yvonne 

17 Lori Podolsky

Closes 25th January 2022 Sketch and/or Color Swatch

 Hello!  Karen C here!  I'm hoping you are all having a wonderful Winter Holiday Season (even if it's summer where you are).  I'm here in Idaho, USA where the temps are dropping below 30, the ground is temporarily white and it is looking a lot like Christmas.  Now, I have to say, I'm not a fan of the cold nor am I a fan of winter.  With that being said, I chose to go with some fun pastel (non winter) colors.  I also created a sketch to play with.  You can choose one or both!


Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up.  We were given two images to play with Dogs In Shades and 3 Little Christmas Girls.  The winner of this challenge will win 2 images of their choice.  Because this challenge will last twice as long, All Dressed Up has agreed to sponsor TWO WINNERS!!!

Did you notice the challenge will be going from 12/20/21 - 1/25/22?  

(Until 25th January for our Southern Hemisphere friends) 

We are all taking a much needed break so that we can spend some time with our family and friends, and just relax!

Now it is time to show you what the team and I have created to inspire you!
