Congratulations ladies, they are all beautiful. Please grab the top 3 winner's badge from the sidebar to proudly display on your blogs

Thank you to everyone that applied to be on our DT, we were overwhelmed by the number of entries and it was a very difficult decision, we would have liked to have you all, but unfortunately that isn't possible. If you weren't successful this time, please try again next time we have a DT call.
So please give a warm welcome to our new ladies:

Aussie Annie


Most of you know me as aussie aNNie so obviously I live in Australia. As a past scrapbook and card making teacher I still continue to use my skills creating and donating my creations to charity, nursing homes and foster carers.  My interests in life are mostly swimming and walking, apart from crafting, and landscaping. As a busy and active person I do not find time to just sit around so most of my cards are made in the evenings. My family are supportive and I have 'one'  devoted and loving husband, oh and my shadow, Thye, my chocolate Labrador. I love life."

Chris


Hello! I'm a teacher at heart - a paper crafter by habit! I'm a wife, mom, grammie, and caregiver.
My husband, Mark, and I live in the extreme southwest corner of the beautiful state of Utah. We moved here after living in Las Vegas for 39 years! It was time to live where life was slower, quieter, and great for our senior years!
When I retired from teaching, I didn’t know what to do with my life. My husband suggested I take up scrapbooking. I had no idea what that was! After years of scrapping all of our photos, I discovered card making. I began making cards in 2008. My first, and only, image stamps are Magnolias. I just love making cards! The thing is, I am incredibly slow! It can take me three full days to make one card! I spend too much time trying this or that, LOL. I like to use a variety of mediums - DIs, watercolors, Copics, pastels, watercolor pencils, and regular colored pencils.

I love sharing my work with others. I hope I can provide some inspiration just as so many others have inspired me!

Elin


I am a lady in my mid 40s. Living in Norway, in a small town near the capital with my husband, 2 sons and a dog. I am a nurse and working full time at the district hospital in the maternity ward. So a busy life as many have with lots going on. Just moved to a bigger house and got my own craft room, where I really love to be when ever I need some time off.

I have made cards for many years, but got into the Magnolia stamps for real in 2014. And then also started to find my way with copic colouring. Still have a lot to learn, and use the internet a lot to find more inspiration.

Besides the cards I knot, bake, make sugar flowers and so some cross-stitch.

Maya


 I am Maya, from Norway.
Nearly 43 years old, and working as a hairdresser and nail technician.
Living with Morten and our two dogs and a cat.
In my free time I love to colour and make cards.
I am so thankful to be on this team, and hope to inspire others.

Congratulations and a warm welcome to the team, we can't wait to see your wonderful creations:)

How wonderful is that!!!

A bit about the store: Its a little online shop selling Swedish branded dies, stamps and papers mainly and more. High quality for affordable prices. The shop is more than a year old and it is a great pleasure to open in the UK where all happy crafters gather! The shop has been featured at Hochanda and yet more to come in the future.

So our challenge for the next four weeks is all about:

Love
(this could be a valentines creation, anniversary card, wedding card etc).

Our fabulous DT have come up with some beautiful creations to inspire you:
