Challenge #43

Before we get to the new Challenge we have some news.

Daisy Doodles is proud to announce two new design team members.
Stephanie Landon has been helping Daisy Doodles for months and has finally decided
to make herself a more permanent member here at the challenge blog.
Her blog is Crafty Teacher and she is one fantastic crafter!
She can use paper to create and alter anything that she gets her hands on.
Some of you may remember that
Stephanie was our guest designer for Tableau Tuesdays in August.
My name is Stephanie Landon.  My husband Steve and I live in Ohio.  I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania.  We have 2 dogs (Brittany and Buster) and 3 cats (Maxine, Midnight and Simon).   I just completed my 9th year of teaching.  I have always loved to craft.  I started scrap booking after getting married.  In the last couple of years I discovered card making, stamping and digital stamps.  I also enjoy cross stitching and knitting.
I am very excited to be Guest Designing for Daisy Doodles this month.
Welcome Stephanie, and thank you for helping the Daisy Girls by 
making cards and altering objects since May!

Amanda Cruxton aka Made by Mandy is our Guest Designer for the Month of September
and she, too, has graciously joined the Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog.
Her photo and bio were posted just weeks ago, but let's introduce Mandy to you here, once again.
My name is Amanda Cruxton although I am known as Mandy or Made by Mandy in the crafty community. I am 39 years young and feel so lucky to be able to still love colouring in after all these years :) I have been with my husband for 22 years.
I have been crafty ever since I could use children’s safety scissors! I have dabbled in quilting, dressmaking, crochet, knitting, embroidery, cross stitch and since November 2002 pretty much exclusively cardmaking after seeing a demo at the NEC. I have been blogging my cards since May of 2007. I love taking part in the challenges and the blogosphere is a constant source of inspiration.
My signature style is bright and colourful. I like to make unusual cards and adore using pretty papers. I’ve never been happy with the stamped images I produce so digi stamps have been an amazing way of improving my cardmaking skills. I love the flexibility of resizing and combining images. I can also experiment with different styles of images that I wouldn’t have purchased as a rubber stamp.

 Mandy....... the entire Daisy Team welcomes you, too!

Most of the kids are back in school already, and
new routines have settled into our lives.
