Hi I'm Suzanne and I've been married for 30 years
 and have 2 grown up sons.  For those that visit
the DoCrafts site I'm known as Suzanne2

I started making cards 4 years ago when  I
couldn't find the perfect card for my sons 25th
so I came home and googled 'handmade cards'
and a whole new world opened up to me and
I've been hooked ever since!

I'm lucky enough to be able to stay at home
and craft as I don't work.  I fill my day with the
usual boring stuff but I still find plenty of time for
crafting and I love trying new techniques.  I really
enjoy stamping and colouring with my promarkers
and copics and watching the images come to life

Card making is my passion and I can't wait to join
in the fun at Fussy and Fancy

Hello my name's Nathalie and I live near Paris in France.
I teach in a primary school and have been making cards
now for almost 5 years.  I began with stamps and then
I discovered digi's and markers, especially copics!

Being part of a design team is new for me, but I am
very excited to work with such talented ladies

Hi my name's Shell and I'm a forty something year
old crafter.  I live on the Wirral with my hubby
Kev and our youngest son and have an older
son who lives not too far away with his
girlfriend and our adorable Granddaughter
Courtney Rose.  It's so true what they say
about grandchildren, they are your reward
for putting up with your kids as teenagers
ha, ha, ha ........

I have been making cards for about
7 years now and I just love colouring.  I mostly
use digital stamps because I love the fact that I can
make them any size I want

********

Vicki, Suzanne & Shell will be
joining Team B so you'll see their
fab designs in the challenge below

Nathalie & Mel will be joining
Team A so you'll have to wait
until the next challenge before
you get to see their talents

Welcome to the design team ladies!

********

Our challenge for the next fortnight is:

EASEL CARDS

As you know there are so many different
versions of easel cards and we can't wait
to see if anyone creates a new style
that we haven't seen before!

Here are our talented design team
with a bit of inspiration:



 
We hope you have fun with this challenge!
