We are so happy to welcome a new Guest Designer for this challenge! Say hello to Valerie Ward! She created an amazing project for this challenge, I know it will inspire you!

Valerie created an awesome tall slimline card, complete with 2 Reveal Wheels! For this card, the little caroling peas are the critters; so cute! She combined images from Peas on Earth, Tiny Christmas, Over the Mountain Borders, Winter Village and many more! Whoever receives this card will certainly have Hap-Pea Holidays!

Valerie used the Reveal Wheel Semicircle Add-On and the Circle Add-On. She added the Mini String of Lights to divide the top section and a Fancy Wavy Banner to divide the the scenes at the bottom. The smallest Puffy Cloud Border made just the right size clouds for Tiny Christmas Santa to fly above!

Thanks so much for creating this amazing inspiration, Valerie!

Now let’s see how our wonderful Design Team was inspired by the challenge theme!

The cute Den Sweet Den bears have traded their forest den for a traditional brick home in the suburbs! Karin‘s design gives you a peek inside the cozy new den with the help of Shut the Front Door!

Samantha‘s sweet scene reimagines the Santa story to include the cute Unicorn Picnic critters! Santa and his sleigh are from Ho-Ho-Holidays!

The bear family is having Snow Much Fun making snow angels on Joyce‘s cute design!

Caly‘s happy little mice are sending joyful wishes for the holidays! She created a fun scene with Mice on Ice, Stitched Pond and Over the Mountain Borders!

Mama bear is busy knitting some gifts with the help of baby bear! Franci‘s cozy scene features Den Sweet Den and Crazy Antics!

Christy‘s card features the cute little crab, palm tree and sand castle from Life is Good in a “relaxing” tropical scene! She added festive holiday decorations from Cheery Christmas and Car Critters Christmas Add-On!

Samantha‘s Christmas Fishes critters are excited for the arrival of Santa Claws! Her awesome coloring brings this delightful scene to life!

Jessica created a Zoom meeting for her happy holiday critters! She filled the windows of the Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape with critters from Yeti or Not, Christmas Fishes, Den Sweet Den, Upon a Star and Cheery Christmas! She added holiday fun using Build-A-House Christmas Add-On for the colorful lights and a menorah from Love You a Latke!

Jenn created an adorable igloo for her polar bear family!

The Brick Stencil and Kiddie Pool ink create an icy look! Jenn added Prisma and Chunky Glitter for even more frosty-ness!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 88 tomorrow!

We are happy to welcome Davina Cantrell as our amazing Guest Designer for this challenge! You know and love her as popsiclesticks on Instagram! Her brilliant cards are frequently inspired by movies, especially Disney and Harry Potter! Wait till you see what she has created for this challenge!

For her featured card, Davina created a tall 8.5″ x 3.5″ card! It really works for this amazing Peter Pan inspired card! She combined so many different sets then used them so creatively to tell this story!

For Peter, she used the boy from Bicycle Built for You and Tinkerbell is a tiny fairy from our Thanksgiving free gift set, A Little Sparkle! To create Skull Rock, Davina started with the speech bubble from Love Letters and added the ghostly eyes and nose with Copic markers. Then she layered the hills from Ahoy Matey in front to finish the pirate lair!

To create the scene, Davina also used Mermaid for You, Wild for You, Toadally Awesome, Ahoy Matey, Meadow Borders, Ocean Wave Borders and Stitched Wave Borders!

Now let’s check out the fantastic inspiration by our Design Team!

Can you guess Jessica‘s inspiration for this amazing Shadow Box Card? To make this scene from Ratatouille come to life she used a whole bunch of sets in totally clever ways! Be sure to click on her name to visit her blog for a full list of all the products she used and more photos of this fun 3D card!

Grace found all the characters for her delightful Winnie the Pooh scene in our sets, Critter Concert, Bicycle Built for You and Hay There! I think it’s so fun that she used Puffy Cloud Borders to make the treetops!

Christy created a lovely scene using Baked with Love to depict her favorite book, The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister!

Karin created a friendly version of the shark from Jaws! It’s hard to believe our cute Duh-nuh critter could be the ruthless shark depicted in the movie; he’s a kinder, gentler version!

Ahoy Matey was used by Franci to create this clean and simple design inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean films! I love how she used a scoring board to add the embossed lines to add interest by framing her cute vignettes!

Samantha‘s beautiful birthday card takes inspiration from The Lion King! The Critters on the Savanna set has the regal lion while the custom sentiment is stamped with Harold’s ABCs! That background is all sorts of awesome!

Joyce‘s La La Land inspired card is totally charming! She used Village Border and the streetlamp from Here We Go A-Waddling to set the scene for the characters from Bicycle Built for You! The song title was added with the help of Violet’s ABCs.

Samantha C used our new RAWRSOME set with some help from Critters from the Past to bring her Land Before Time inspiration to life! How amazing is her prehistoric looking background?!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and of course we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 47 tomorrow!
