Changes -- Link Party #47

Hello Cropstop friends! Here we are at the beginning of a new year and with it comes some BIG changes. This will be the FINAL CHALLENGE for the Cropstop blog as I have decided to step down and Haylie-Jo has decided to give the blog a break for a while. We've enjoyed working together for these past two years, and have been inspired by all of your beautiful work.

Supplies and Tools:
Winter Wonders Stamp Set (All Night Media)

Challenge Rules:
  1. Create ANY new project using a product or two from one of the companies CropStop carries in the store. (It’s ok if you didn’t buy it from us, and also fine if it’s a product we don’t currently have it in stock as long as it’s from one of the companies we carry!)
  2. Please, no back-linking old projects
  3. Limit 5 entries per challenge
  4. Link your project here, link back to this post, and mention the CropStop Challenge in your post.

Optional Twist for this final challenge is:
Create a project in NEUTRAL TONES and I'll enter your name twice in the random draw!

(Note: This last challenge will run through January 30th - the winner will be announced January 31st!)

I'm sad this will be the last challenge here at Cropstop. But, Esther you have gone out with a bang! I love this wintry combination, and actually woke up this morning with the burlap and snow white combination whirling around in my head! Two great minds!

Thanks for a wonderful set of challenges at Cropstop over the last couple of years, and best wishes to you in your future endeavors. Hosting challenges takes a lot of time and effort and I appreciate all the work that has gone into them. Love this final challenge and can't wait to pull out some burlap to make a project. Happy 2019 to you all!

You have done a wonderful job hosting the blog, I love the last wonderful creation you have made for the last post, the white against the burlap is wonderful and love the embossing folder you chose for the background!

I am sad to read that this is the final challenge but I can certainly understand. Your card is absolutely beautiful and I don't know why I don't remember to use my burlap - thank you for the reminder! I've entered two cards today and neither of them are neutral colours but hopefully I can get something neutral together before the challenge ends. Best wishes to you both in the future and thank you for all past challenges - I enjoyed joining here whenever I could and I even had the privilege of being a guest designer - thank you! All my best!
