Challenge 496 - 3rd of January – New (Year/Baby/Job, etc)

Happy New Year! We still can't get over how quickly time passes and are only just recovering from the festivities. We hope you all enjoyed a lovely time too.

The first challenge of 2019 is:

New (Year/Baby/Job/etc)

Our first challenge in 2019 will last 2 weeks, we are still getting back into the normal routine after all.

Anything that fits in with this subject, qualifies for entering into this challenge. (Please let us know why you think it fits in with the subject in your post)

Don't forget, there is a maximum of 2 entries per person and it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started). Please also make sure to turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We may not leave a comment if you have word verification switched on.

We understand a lot of people have experienced problems with the new Inlinkz. Although I promised at the end of 2018 to return to the old Inlinkz, I'm afraid this is not possible as I have been informed this will be closed down in the near future. Instead, you can find a little tutorial to help you through the process of adding your link to the new Inlinkz here.

  1. Are you able to include the finishing date & time for the challenge in the posts now that you are no longer using the linky tool with the countdown? For those of us in different time zones, it can be a bit confusing as to when the challenge actually finishes. Thank you.

    1. I have now re-instated a clock for the blog (it no longer worked). Our challenges run from 8 am GMT on a Thursday to 6 pm GMT on a Wednesday.

  2. Very cute design team samples. Thanks for the challenge!
