New DT Member

Hi everyone !   Danielle has had to leave our Design Team.  Her little boy is very sick and she needs to concentrate her time with him.  We'll miss you Danielle!! :(

We have a new member to introduce you to.  
Welcome Sharon!!

I am 39 but will celebrate the big 40 on 20/10/2010!!! I am married with two boys, Jay and Ryan who are 11 and 7 respectively. I have worked in the bank for 23 years next month(far too long).  Since having the boys I work 24 hours per week which leaves me time to squeeze in some housework around my crafting lol!

I started crafting after making my wedding stationery in 2004. Have been addicted to stamping for the last few years and just this year have really gotten into the digital stamps.  I live in Inverness in the North of Scotland, not far from Loch Ness. Have never seen Nessie though. I am really excited to be on the DT and look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone.

You can visit Sharon at her blog TIME TO CRAFT.  Go and see her beautiful work and say hello.  We look so forward to working with her.

Now on to our current Challenge #13
This challenge is "Here Comes The Bride"
We want to see your wedding projects.  You must use a digital image.  This challenge will end on Sunday August 1 at 7:00 PM  EST.

The Design Team has some awesome inspiration for you.  We also have Guest Designer this time so let me introduce her to you.  

My name is Beth Colella.  I'm a stay at home mom of 4…. (nope make that 5 with my husband). I have a zoo when it comes to the animal dept. (1 cat, 3 dogs, 1 frog, 1 hamster, 4 hermit crabs, and tropical fishthat are multiplying quickly). Three of my friends are responsible for getting me involved in card making and I thank them for it since I now have something to do in my free time. It’s a challenge for me because I had a stroke in 2006 that affected my eyesight, but… if you put your mind to it, you can do anything. I love making gifts and cards for people just to watch the joy they have for that special home-made gift.  Life has a lot of speed bumps and if I can put a smile on someone's face with one of my creations, that makes my hobby even more enjoyable.  Besides my cards, I love to go fishing, boating, sailing, camping, and traveling. My most favorite place so far is Maui . If I could, I'd move there in a heartbeat. 

Here is Beth's card followed by our DT's awesome cards. Click on their name to go to their blogs and see the details.

Beth (Guest Designer)

How is that for inspiration?!?  WOW!  Now it's your turn...can't wait to see what you come up with.  Get your projects in by Sunday, August 1 at 7:00 pm EST.
