Challenge # 20 - "Bonfire Night"

This challenge is based on Bonfire Night ... a little different but fun.  For those of you who don't know what Bonfire night is I have a little of the history for you.  You can do anything related to fires, fireworks, flames, celebrations or even foods (think caramel apples)  associated with the celebration.  The USA has Thanksgiving and England has Bonfire Night.

Bonfire Night  is an annual celebration held on the evening of 5 November to mark the failure of the Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605.  You can find more information HERE.


Beginning with this challenge we have new rules.  YOU MUST USE A DAISY DOODLE DIGITAL STAMP.

The Design Team has some inspiration for you.

Welcome to the new girls :)

We had a hard time choosing the new DT members, all the applicants were fantastic.
Unfortunately we only had a limited amount of positions to fill.
Thank you to everyone that applied, your work is awesome!

Please say hello to the new girls, you're going to love their work :)

Elaine


My name is Elaine, I am a forty something mum of three. 
Two boys aged 15 and 13 and a little girl who is 3 years old.  
I have been married to Andy for 21 years and live in Lincolnshire.

I have been crafting since I was a little girl with one thing or another 
and have always enjoyed anything arty or creative. 
I really got seriously interested in paper craft about seven years ago 
when introduced to card making and scrap booking by a friend. 
It has taken off since then, I have tried lots of techniques and done some scrap booking but my 
love is all things digi… 
I absolutely adore digital images as they are so much more versatile than rubber! 
I am really looking forward to my new post with Daisy Doodles and hope to inspire with some of my creations!

Paula

I live in Shropshire (UK)
am married with 4 children between us and a grandchild on the way!! 
I know can you believe that a grandchild at my age!
think I have always been crafting, from being a child but has taken me until the last few years to get into paper crafting! now I am hooked, and its rare I pick up my cross stitching/sewing/knitting.

Carley

My name is Carley Carter and I am from central Mississippi. 
I am currently a SAHM to two of the most precious boys in the world. 
Coleton is 3 and Cash is 8 months. 
I say currently because I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education with emphasis in English, 
Reading and Science. I will eventually teach and pursue my plan to change the world one child at a 
time!  I am married to the most wonderful man in the world. 
I have only been crafting for a few months so I am a newbie to the crafting world. 
I am learning so much and loving every minute of it. 
The Lord has blessed me so much in my life and I am honored to serve Him in every way. 
I am a talker as you can see so a short bio was hard for me, 
but I hope this gave you a little insight into who I am! 
I am so excited to be joining the team at Daisy Doodles. 
I can't wait to learn from these wonderful people they are all so super talented!


Clare

I'm Clare and I live in Essex, UK.
I am married to Rich, who supports my whims and must haves. I have 3 children that all live with me, Jade 20, Jean-Luc 17 & Julian 13. I also have 3 cats, 2 rabbits & fish. I love crafting especially cardmaking but also find the time to do knitting, xstitch, sequin art. I have also just started making Latch Hook rugs.
I have my own little webstore selling craft supplies, my handmade cards and gifts.
Fink

I am "Fink" in the craft world.

I have been scrapping since way back but card making for about 3 years.
I have a very supportive hubby that even shops for me plus 2 gorgeous girls,
Taylor 15 who is learning to drive plus Antonia 12 almost 13 (when did I get this old???!)EEK!
I really enjoy the crafting world and have found many wonderful people around the world this way!

WELCOME to you all girls, I hope you enjoy working with us :D
