The 12 Days of Christmas Quest: Day Seven

Hello and happy New Year's Eve everyone! Just one more sleep until a brand new year!

It is the seventh day of Christmas and it is time to continue the quest. If you missed day one click HERE to start from the beginning and read all the details.

Day two: click HERE 
Day three: click HERE 
Day four: click HERE
Day five: click HERE
Day six: click HERE

As a quick refresher, each day during the 12 Days of Christmas (Dec. 25th to Jan. 5th), you're going to be given a task to follow. Each day over the next 12 days, I'll be asking you questions to find out a little bit more about you as a designer. You will be able to leave your daily answer in a comment on the post for each respective day. If you follow the instructions for each day, you'll earn a free digital paper.

Since this is a busy time of year for most people, you will have plenty of time to complete the quest. It is completely up to you as to when you submit your answers (daily, all at once at the end, or otherwise). AS LONG AS ALL your TASKS are submitted, no later than January 12th, 2020, then you will qualify to receive the paper(s) for whichever day(s) you participate.

Here is the paper up for grabs today...

This paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: KatiaZhe (via Creative Fabrica) and Design TNT (via Inky Deals). In the zip folder that will be emailed should you successfully complete the quest, you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

Play along each of the 12 days and you'll earn yourself the full set! So, how about we get started with today's task?!!

On the seventh day of Christmas,
it is time to earn paper number seven.
Keep up the good work and before you know it,
you'll soon work your way up to number eleven!!!


For myself, it is difficult to narrow down since there are SOOOOOO MANY designers that I love so it is a good thing I just have to list five and not my top five--I think that would just be too difficult to narrow down. Here are five of my favourite designers in no particular order:
  1. Sandy Sommerfeld of Scribbles Designs
  2. Jodie Mackrell of Bugaboo Stamps
  3. Tammy of A Day for Daisies
  4. Beccy from Beccy's Place
  5. Kristy Breach from Imagine That Digistamp
...but then how can I forget Nikki from Limited Runs or Ike from Ike's Art or.....the list could go on and on! Just too many favourites to choose from!

When you come up with a response for today's task, simply leave your TOP FIVE FAVOURITE CHALLENGE BLOGS LIST ALONG WITH YOUR REASON FOR WHY YOU CHOSE YOUR #1 in a comment on THIS POST. Now for many of you, especially those who have played in previous years, the odds are that I should have your e-mail address in order to send out the free paper you earn. If you are new to the quest or are not sure whether I might have your email address, please be sure to also leave your email address in your comment. If you would prefer to keep your address private, then check out the bottom paragraph from Day 1 for how to send it to me.

Hope this New Year's Eve is a festive one! See you all tomorrow for day number eight!!!

Happy New Year to you Lisa. This is a tough one to just limit it to five. Here goes:
1. Beccy (Beccy's Place) - lovely drawn images and very versatile designs.
2. Jodie (Bugaboo Stamps)
3. Ching-Chou Kuik (Ching-Chou Kuik)
4. Sandy (Scribbles Designs)
5. Nikki (Limited Runs)

and there were so many more I could have added.

This is a tough question. In one place you say list 5 and in another place it says top 5 but I think it's too difficult to try to put these in order so I'm going with 5 in no particular order. LOL!

Beccy's Place definitely! I love her images and play in her challenges often. She has lots of freebies too.

Bugaboo Stamps for the same reasons above.

Imagine That! I used to be on the design team and have a lot of her images. I need to play with them more often.

Gerda Steiner has some really cute images. They also have periodic freebies and a challenge that I don't play in often enough.

Scribbles Designs I found because of their freebies too. Lots of them. I've been a guest designer for Sandy. Lots of fun and the team is awesome!

Wow! Only 5, that is hard. But here goes.
#1- Jodie Mackrell- Bugaboo Love the simple designs. They are great for all occasions and males or females of all ages. Love their sketch challenge too.
#2- Scribbles Designs by Sandy Sommerfield- Love her designs for a long time. They are fun and easy to use.
#3- Paulette- Create with TLC- Vintage digis that are great for vintage cards and Shabby Chic. Love the choices for men and women.
#4- Kris Breach- Imagine That!- Her images are fun and cheerful to use. They put a smile on your face.
#5-Decosse's Dynamite Doodles by Lisa Decosse- Love her digial papers, sentiments and frames. I use the Christmas items a lot. They mix and match well with just about everything.
#6- just in case #5 is not considered Beccy Muir- Beccy's Place. Love her designs. They are great and can be used for a simple or very decorative card. Her images are very universal to use with makes it a fabulous image to color up several times in different color schemes.

Aimeslee again. Oops, I forgot to tell why and who is #1. You really making us work here, because Beverly Cole of Artsystamper is #6 and #7 is... yes, it hard! Okay, I like Bugaboo images because they are so boldly drawn, easy to color and inorporate into design. Mary Ellen for same reason, in fact all 5 for the same reason. Yuck, okay, I'm choosing Mary Ellen Smith as my fave because she's no longer drawing. I can't choose any other way! lol xoxo

1. The Octopode Factory - Im inclined towards her many Steampunk images. My top choice but sadly the artist passed away in 2015 at a very young age.

2. Vera Lane Studio - I love all her Quirky images and own many which Im willing to pay for them.

3. Twistoon - Her wacky images are really hilarious.

4. A Day For Daisies - Her illustrations are really gorgeous and unusual.

5. Jeremiah Ketner Fine Art - Gorgeous sketches of Girls
