Mid way Introduction to the DT

To go to our current challenge please click HERE

We at Sparkles Christmas Challenges are now mid way through our June challenge which is

CHRISTMAS ANIMALS

To date we have had some amazing entries, we are greatly looking forward 
to lots more wonderful creations being entered into the challenge.
Over the past few months there have been a number of changes with both the 
management and the Design Team on the blog.
Over the next few months we plan to introduce you to our DT.



Hi, I am Caz/Cazro, or Carole Robson the new owner of Sparkles Christmas Challenges. 
I have been on the DT for a number of years, I was delighted to take 
on running the blog when Shaz, the previous owner decided she wished to move on.
I do enjoy making Christmas cards and have welcomed challenges which
have encouraged me to make cards throughout the year. 
I love Christmas, it is so special, a time for the family to gather, to enjoy 
the fun and spirit of Christmas and my Birthday which is on Christmas Day.
I live near Durham city in the North East of England, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
My husband Keith and I have been married for many years, how quickly they pass  by.
We have two adult sons, 6 grand-children.
I am a retired Nurse Manager.
I became interested in paper crafting in 2003, over time stamping has become my passion.
I am addicted to stamping and to collecting stamps.
I have had a blog since July 2012, I have been on various DT's .
I eventually got the courage to start my own challenge blog in January 2014

I am also a member of these Design Teams

Thank you for popping in, I hope you have enjoyed
my introduction. We will follow up with a member of
the Design Team next month.
